I want to like Redbox.

But most of the time, all the good flicks are already rented out. If I want to take home the latest drek from The Asylum or Lion's Gate Home Video, they've got that in droves. If I want to actually rent something that looks worth watching, forget it.

And I don't rent games from them, mostly because I keep seeing pictures like this up on the web:
i.imgur.com

They're offering "Redbox Instant" now, but I think that might be too little, too late. I have Hulu Plus, Netflix, Comcast on Demand, and I just wound up getting a few free months of Amazon Prime Instant Video.

I want to like Redbox, sure. But there are far too many issues with their current model, and they're expanding into a saturated territory. If Netflix starts setting up store kiosks, they're farked.

Am I understanding this correctly? Redbox made 4% more than last year (which was also a profitable year), but since investors expected even better profits, Redbox stock drops 13% and articles like this get published.

I know I haven't used Redbox in a few months, but that's because most of what Hollywood is pumping out isn't even worth $1.50.

When you really want to watch something, but you never heard of that and well . . this is either a warning or it's advice.

Redbox is ok but it seems like there is rarely anything good to see on it, I've switched over to Netflix which has a LOT more content even though you might have to wait a little longer to see new movies.

I hate Redbox. I miss video stores where you can pick the movie you want in a nice, cool/warm place and then go to the register when you decide what you want. Now you have to wait IN LINE in the cold/rain/heat/snow while some moron tries to decide what he wants to watch.

I used Redbox for a year until they lied and said I didn't return a movie.  They wanted $25 for the disc.  I told them to piss off.  It wound up I paid $20 for a disc they lost and I've never used them since.  Bunch of farking thieving assholes.  That's what drove me to imitate Yellowbeard.

I'm don't know where you live, but here virtually all the machines are inside a store of one sort or another.  The only one I've seen located outside was at a Walgreens.

Revenues went up 4% compared to the same quarter in 2012, but they had 13% more rental kiosks in Q2 2013. The revenue per kiosk was down about 10%, which is a pretty significant amount. Yes, investors like profits, but they also watch for trends. If revenue per kiosk goes down by that much, it's a bad sign.

Oh Boy! Take my money. I want to watch a terrible movie!
Libraries, thrift stores, garage sales have free or cheap movies. The intertubes have active torrents of every turdbomb and every 'classic' every filmed. Redbox will be ok. I can't imagine cable tv's subscriber list is steadily growing, either. Besides, who wants Redbox when you can pontificate on FARK about all  those kids on my lawn!

You're doing it wrong.

Use the Redbox app (assuming you have a smartphone that has it) or the website. Find the movie you want, locate it near you, reserve it, then it will be held for when you get there.

Standing there browsing through the box's supply is for losers.

I like redbox because I like just walking by one, grabbing a movie, watching it and retuning it to another box close to my work the next day, but good gosh, they let ANYTHING in those things.
Some of the movies in there wouldn't even play on SyFy channel.

Redbox would be awesome if it contained single use DVDs that just...I don't don't know, I guess Mission Impossibled themselves after a viewing.  That way there is no contention about returning the DVDs.  That harkens too strongly back to Blockbuster scheduling and return schemes.

Or, you know, just go with online streaming content.  For which, I'll just say again, Netflix is awesome if you trust the rating system and you're willing to just give things a shot.  But what about the new summer movies? If you're looking for "New" movies out of Redbox, you're already doing it really wrong.

I just got a 50" LED HDTV and a Blu-Ray player for my birthday, so I hit up the local Redbox for some effects-laden sci-fi and fantasy Blu-Ray discs, just to show it off.  I picked up Total Recall (remake) and "Oz, The Great and Powerful."

Total Recall was boring as hell, but looked great.  Oz was so badly scratched that the first 20 minutes were practically unwatchable.

I'm jealous. I have a ton of 72rpmers from that era, inherited from my great-grandmother, but nothing to play them on. There they sit, gatherine dust. I've never heard them once, but can't bring myself to get rid of them or sell them.

In my youth I worked at Blockbuster, during N64 years. We had a few problems with jerks switching the guts of cartridges. The cartridge would be for Starfox, but the game was Rogue Squadron (or whatever). Amazingly, after we charged the jerks the full retail price of the game, they stopped doing it. It happened three times in a month, all tween boys who didn't know each other.

Hmm. I live in New Mexico. Never really thought of it before. Let me think:

The one at my Albertson's is indoors, and the one at my WalMart is in that weird twilight zone area between the first set of doors and the actual entrance.

However, the The two at my local Walgreens is outdoors, but at least it's under some cover. You know how a few of them have columns and some cover on the front sides? It's sitting right there, next to the propane tank locker and an ice machine.

Though now that I think of it, they probably only have it outside because it's in the same complex as a Hastings, which still does old school in-store video and game rentals. (As well as sales of those, music, books, and a bunch of semi-Hot-Topic hipstery crap.) So they're probably trying to siphon a few impulse rentals with that placement.

agreed. I really was hoping their lineup would be good and they would push netflix to update their content quicker with more of the "A" movies.   I sort of like how they have some of the bad B movies on their streaming that you don't see anywhere else. 

Not only is there streaming pathetic but the setup is bad, it appears little thought was given to how it would be organized other than by date.

Good idea, streaming plus 4 Kiosk rentals a month for pretty much the same price as Netflix.

And I don't rent games from them, mostly because I keep seeing pictures like this up on the web:


They're offering "Redbox Instant" now, but I think that might be too little, too late. I have Hulu Plus, Netflix, Comcast on Demand, and I just wound up getting a few free months of Amazon Prime Instant Video.

I want to like Redbox, sure. But there are far too many issues with their current model, and they're expanding into a saturated territory. If Netflix starts setting up store kiosks, they're farked.


Wow, the only problem I have with Redbox is having to stand in line behind morons who haven't discovered the Internet yet... They have some low budget shirt, but they have quite a few other movies, you just have to look. Once again, the Internet allows you to do this in advance, it's really pretty cool, I see great things in the future involving this 'Internet' thing...

I don't want to pick my movies weeks in advance and not know when something is coming, or what it's going to be, as well as be limited to only one at a time. I also have yet to watch something streaming that doesn't either have buffering issues, or plays at a lower quality so as to offset the buffering issues. In other words, Netflix does not give me the bones that it seems to give everyone else.

Redbox still feels a niche, and I always get a kick when people start announcing a death knell not because sales have gone down but because they haven't gone up as much as before.

They don't need to tweak the website though... Currently if we want to watch 3 or 4 movies, we have to pick kiosk locations and then ad our movies until we hit on the one that has what we want. If I could pick the movies and have it tell me the closest 5 kiosks with all of the movies, it would be much better.

HempHead: ParadoxDice: I hate Redbox. I miss video stores where you can pick the movie you want in a nice, cool/warm place and then go to the register when you decide what you want. Now you have to wait IN LINE in the cold/rain/heat/snow while some moron tries to decide what he wants to watch.

If only more people knew you can go online and reserve your movie at your local kiosk.


Yeah, I hate when I do this and get stuck for 20 minutes behind some indecisive moron. Especially when they hear you mention that you are just there to make a pickup and don't move any faster....

It's not like these are homeless people, you still need a credit or debit card to rent. Most people that have one of these at least know someone who has an Internet connection they can borrow.
