Redbox launches free streaming TV service to a limited online audience

Redbox has started to roll out a free streaming TV service across the country. It offers TMZ, USA Today and Redbox channels, which will stream hand-picked collections of movies.

So far, the landing page promoting the service has been down for a few hours, and opinions from those who have access to the service are varied. People love free, but it’s the same old content — just in a new location.

Considering what’s on offer via Redbox, take our advice and pick up a different free streaming service.

Nothing new to see here

Xumo, is already available in more than 35 million people’s homes across the United States, offering Redbox’s channels and much more. If Redbox are just following suit to match the free TV trend, then this move is destined to fail.

Redbox will need to do more in a market where ViacomCBS, NBC’s Peacock, HBO Max, Tubi, and others are pushing boundaries at great expense. They have to offer something unique, and rentals won’t cut it. That’s especially so when Amazon, Apple, and others stream, rent, and create original content already.

The one hope is that Redbox make their own curated channels amazing, yet at present, they’re streaming movies like Desert Saints and Labor Pains. It seems Redbox has given up already.

Other channels available on Redbox include Filmrise, Comedy Dynamics, and marathon channels of Family Feud, Unsolved Mysteries and America’s Funniest Home Videos. Each of these are available on numerous other free streaming services.

Redbox on Demand

  • Apple TV
  • Android TV
  • Chromecast
  • LG, Samsung and Vizio Smart TVs
