Redbox Instant By Verizon Launches Into Beta

Redbox Instant by Verizon, the up-and-coming joint venture that's preparing to take on Netflix, is now live in Google Play and App Store.

The service won't be publicly launching until early 2013, according to a recent report from The Hollywood Reporter, however. But Redbox recently told GigaOm that a beta test would begin in December—and, apparently, it’s beginning today. The Redbox Twitter account this morning announced the launch, too. "Today is the day! We’re *gradually* rolling out access to redboxinstant.com," the tweet read, pointing users to the sign up page.

The app’s description spells out the details of what the service provides—specifically, a free trial period with a month of unlimited streaming as well as four DVD credits which can be used at a Redbox kiosk. Users can watch movies on their Android/iOS phone or tablet with the app, bookmark favorite titles, buy and rent movies (even without a subscription), and browse through Redbox's database of thousands of titles.

Also, Verizon plans web streaming, supporting the Xbox 360 and some Samsung TVs and Blu-ray players. Customers will be able to register up to five devices to access the service.
