But you are not invited to the party – unless you have an invite, that is. Redbox will open up to the public later.<br /><br />Redbox offers unlimited streaming and four nights of physical DVD rentals for 8 dollars per month. One dollar more will give you Blu-ray rentals instead of DVD. There is also some chatter that 6 dollars per month will give access to the streaming service without physical rentals but this is yet to be confirmed.<br /><br /><p align=center><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/redbox.jpg" alt="Redbox Instant"><br><i>Redbox takes on Netflix with unlimited movie streaming</i></p><br />Redbox will offer no TV shows at launch but offer a library of popular movies; â€śMovies that really matter in the marketplaceâ€ť, Redbox says. Partnerships include Epix and Warner Bros so there should definitely be some quality content available.<br /><br />Redbox will initially be available for iOS and Android as well as Samsung and LG Smart TVs and Blu-ray players. Google TV devices will also be supported and more devices will be announced in the coming months.<br /><br />No words on when Redbox Instant will enter the closed invite-only phase.
