Redbox and Verizon have been in talks and deals for a long time now but for the most part little to no information has come out except for a few nuggets suggesting am instant video service similar to that of Netflix or Amazon. Recently more details emerged about both price and possible content and tiers that would be associated with this service. Link.
For about $6 you would have access to instant streaming that would be available on Android, IOS, and Xbox devices (I assume more will follow). Publicly the only content provider known is Warner Bros. but others like Paramount and Lionsgate are rumored to be included in the closed "secret" beta currently going on. That beta also suggests that the full service will go live on Dec. 17th. Also for only about $2 extra you would received 4 credits a month or Redbox rentals or online downloadable rentals.
Depending on the content this could persuade me personally to switch, specifically the rentals part. Of course like normal people I don't go to some box to get my movies but to be able to download a recently released movie that won't be streaming any time soon would be nice. Especially if that means I could watch that movie on a device or on my Xbox.
I know there has been some dissension among Netflix users, especially after their price hike, but would something like this make you jump ship? Or is it all about content and you're taking a wait and see approach?
