Redbox Will Stream Movies Next Year

Not content to beckon to you subliminally from its kiosks planted in heavily trafficked areas, Redbox’s corporate parent Coinstar announced it will launch a streaming service next year. Teaming with an unannounced partner, the instant rental service will go head to head with the Netflixes and Hulus of the world.

Coinstar dropped the news last week during a quarterly earnings call, Yahoo reports.
