Redbox Instant Now Available For Google TVBy: Chris Crum - June 4, 2013
Google announced today that there is now a Redbox Instant by Verizon app for Google TV.
Redbox Instant senior product manager Brad Bowers writes on the Google TV blog, “It’s Friday night and you want to watch a movie. Great! If you have Google TV, now you can enjoy a flick in your living room using the Redbox Instant by Verizon app available through a supported Google TV device.”
The app works on the following devices: the 47G2 and 55G2 Google TV-enabled Smart TVs from LG, NETGEAR’s NeoTV Prime with Google TV, the Sony Internet Player NSZ-GS7, and the Vizio Co-Star.
Redbox notes that you need to make sure you have the latest version of your device’s firmware.
“The app delivers the full Redbox Instant by Verizon experience right to your living room,” says Bowers. “This includes access to your subscription disc and streaming package, and ability to purchase and rent the latest new releases from the Redbox Instant store.”
You can sign up for the service from the web or through the app itself.
