Fox effectively has enlisted in Universal's campaign against Redbox and other discount-rental chains by ordering wholesalers to stop supplying discs to Redbox kiosks during the first 30 days after Fox film and television titles hit the market. The move, which News Corp. president Chase Carey hinted at Wednesday during an earnings conference call, follows the collapse of negotiations between Fox and Redbox over terms of a direct product agreement.

So, do the studios get a cut of each rental from their "approved" rental outlets? Otherwise, the anti-Redbox stance makes little sense. If the studios simply sell copies of their movies to wholesalers, then to whom those wholesalers subsequently sell them should make little difference.
