Inside Redbox is the #1 "Unofficial" Redbox Online Community for Redbox Codes, News and more. Inside Redbox is not affiliated with Redbox Automated Retail, LLC.

A great article from The Washington Post tells a bit of the history of Redbox, as well as some new expansion numbers.

The article mentions a few statistics:

  • Redbox’s largest market is Washington, with over 350 kiosks in operation
  • Redbox currently has over 3000 kiosks operating throughout the country
  • By the end of 2007, Redbox plans to have over 9,100 locations – WOW!

It also talks about how Redbox stacks up against its competition – such as Blockbuster and Netflix. An interesting read for sure.

At this pace, Redbox will have the most locations of any DVD rental company very soon. The future looks bright.

    I wish you would answer this question honestly. Has insideredbox.com been purchased by redbox.com? There are no new codes for the people who have visited you regularly. There has not been a new code for almost a month. I am giving up on this site as a place for free codes, but I appreciated all your efforts in the past. Now it is simply a site over-run with banners and redbox sucking up. This may sound bad ( I do not mean it that way) but I hope you were paid well by redbox. You deserve it. You had a great site for a long time.
    P.S. I will check back for a reply or you can email me. You have my email.

    P.S.II Great job getting Netflix AND Blockbuster to both put up banners on a Redbox site. Peerflix?? Well, that site won’t be here in a year.

    John,

    I think you misunderstand completely the involvement of any outside company with this site…

    You say that you wish that I would answer the question honestly? How many more times can I keep saying the same thing: this site is not affiliated with Redbox or any other company and never has been. This is stated clearly in the site header and has been for quite some time.

    This site was created primarily as a site to help people get Redbox codes, but it has evolved since then. While right now Redbox codes are definitely fewer and far between, it does not spell then end to this site.

    I am dedicated to providing Redbox news, and do my best to post and comment about anything going on in the Redbox world. I certainly don’t see any “sucking up”, and it wouldn’t make any sense for me to do so. I have never received any compensation from Redbox, and very little communication with them.

    This site is a community, and the codes that have been posted were done by members of the community, not by me. I post new codes when I learn about them, but for the most part everything is posted by people like you.

    I will say this about codes: I do not believe the day of getting free codes is over. Redbox enjoys the lead right now in the DVD Kiosk market, and as such has cut back on promotion. There are, however, strong competitors coming on which are offering codes (one of which is DVDPlay), and Redbox will not be able to ignore them forever.

    So, if you are interested in the DVD Rental market, stick around. There are many developments to come that will only be beneficial for us as consumers.

    All the best.

    Another comment regarding the ads from Blockbuster, Netflix and Peerflix…

    Those ads are put up by me to support this site and costs of running it. If you have been around for more than a month, you know I used to have a lot of Google Adsense ads up throughout the site. I have removed those for now, and in their place put up the few ads you see now.

    So, its not like I “got” Blockbuster or Netflix to allow me to put ads on the site. I am not getting paid to display the ads, but only when someone signs up for a trial by clicking on the ads.

    Peerflix has been around for quite sometime and is a great business model – so I don’t think they are going anywhere anytime soon.

    Hello,
    I am doing a report on upcoming and fast rising businesses in my area, so I decided to chose Red Box. I was wondering if you could tell me exactly how Red Box got started and how the Red Box system actually works. Thank you.
