Redbox issued an official response to Fox’s demands that Redbox either pay them more money or not be allowed to purchase and rent their DVDs until 30 days after release. Check it out…
Despite 20th Century Fox’s effort to delay consumer access to new release DVDs by 30 days at rental kiosks, redbox reaffirms its commitment to providing consumers new release DVDs. Redbox will protect consumers’ rights to access new release DVDs at their preferred retail channel at the price the consumer deems reasonable. Redbox will continue to carry all major new releases, including 20th Century Fox titles, at the more than 17,000 redbox locations nationwide. The first priority at redbox is the customer.
Like I said in my last post about this, the simple translation is: “Screw you, Fox. Our customers come first. Eat my shorts, man!”
