Roku welcomes Redbox Instant

Roku customers have no shortage of viewing material, and the list continuously grows, most recently adding Demand 5 for customers in the UK. That only adds to features such as the numerous channels and premium services like Amazon Prime, Hulu and Netflix. But now, the little set-top box grows by one more option.

Today the company announces the launch of Redbox Instant, giving users one more choice for movie watching, popcorn munching fun. Again, this adds a minor fee to the monthly bill for customers, though it is still likely still less demanding, even with all features, than your cable or satellite tab.

The device maker tells us it will be "available to all customers in the U.S. with a Roku 3, Roku 2, Roku HD (model 2500) or Roku LT (models 2400 & 2450) player or the Roku Streaming Stick".

Redbox Instant by Verizon promises more than 5,500 streaming videos, movie trailers, bookmarking and parental controls. Of course, this adds $8 to your monthly bill but, like I said, combine all of these services and you will still save money over your current TV provider.
