I'd say they made a good move by getting their new streaming service locked into Xbox live to help ensure profitability.

Did you post this in the Blu-ray forum because you think this will affect disc rentals?

Disc rentals are going down while steaming is going up. Since Coin Star has invested in both, I figured it would be a good topic for discussion.

Actually Redbox rental revenues are up, profit is down because:

The drop came despite an 8.4% jump in revenue year-over-year ($564 million vs. $520 million). Coinstar said the drop in profit was due to operating results from kiosks acquired as part of its $100 million acquisition of NCR Corp.’s entertainment division, which included 10,000 kiosks previously operating under the Blockbuster Express brand.

There is an existing Redbox thread here, do not see a need for another one.

I was speaking in general.

Unfortunately that thread hasn't been active since last May, so I never saw it. I'll be more then happy to repost this subject at the moderators request. wink.gif

A question more relevant here is what BD players have a Redbox Instant app? They said Samsung when they made their announcement so I hooked up my Samsung C5500 but no Redbox app downloaded. If they think that computers and mobile devices are enough they'll have a rough going with the HT crowd.

Agreed.

Walking the fine line between jaw-dropping and a plain ol' yawn.
