Roku announced on Thursday that it will soon be getting Redbox Instant. Roku announced writes in a blog post:
We’re always working to bring Roku customers the best range and quality in streaming entertainment, and today we’re excited to announce that Redbox Instant by Verizon will arrive on the Roku platform this summer!
Redbox Instant subscribers will be able to enjoy thousands of popular movies on Roku as well as buy and rent the newest releases on-demand.
The channel will be available on Roku 3, Roku 2, Roku LT (models 2400 & 2450), and Roku HD (model 2500) players in addition to the Roku Streaming Stick when Verizon launches it.
Redbox also announced this week that Redbox Instant is now available for Google TV, working 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.
Clearly getting on as many devices as possible will be key to the success of the service as it competes with Netflix, Amazon, Hulu and others.
