Redbox rolling out $1.50 Blu-ray rentals at 13,000-plus kiosks, nationwide by fall

Coming to a Redbox [hopefully] near you!

It’s really no surprise that Redbox is going nationwide with its $1.50 Blu-ray rentals,
at every step along the way of its Hollwood dealmaking, the company has
pointed out its aim towards procuring a supply of high definition
movies, and now the day is finally here. The high definition disc
packing kiosks currently number 13,300, and the plan is to have Blu-ray
in all 26,000 locations by the fall. While we spotted plenty of Blu-ray
enabled locations with a San Francisco zip code, other areas in the
Midwest and East Coast weren’t so lucky. The site points out a few of
the movies on offer, including Green Zone, Book of Eli and Bounty
Hunter, but there’s no way to check which movies are in stock at each box.
Of course, at this price, we might be willing to take our chances until
Redbox gets things straightened out, or starts offering an online competitor to Netflix.
