    Redbox Instant targets launch by year-end, blends subscription streaming and DVD rentals with VOD

    Excerpt:

    "Previous info indicated the service would focus more heavily on movies than the back catalog of TV shows that is a part of Netflix Watch Instantly and Amazon Prime Instant Video, and Bloomberg reports Redbox will break with their models by paying its content providers per subscriber cable TV-style, instead of a flat rate decided up front."

    I signed up for the beta and was very disappointed. The video library is very, very small and what is there are a lot of no-name movies and specials with a few that you might recognize. For this to be successful, they really need to allow access to many of the movies that can be obtained from the boxes themselves (although I would understand if there was a delay before streaming was available for a movie).
