Redbox recently installed its first kiosks in New York City, both at Walgreens. One is in the Empire State Building, and another at One Times Square. Previously the closest kiosks to the area were found in Jersey City and Hoboken, NJ.

Redbox VP of Marketing Gary Lancina also mentioned that Redbox has now served over 37 million customers since their launch.

Here in the Salt Lake City area, we have had Redbox kiosks since mid-2005. Not sure if it is still the case, but I know for awhile this area was a very high-use market for Redbox, driving a lot of their growth.

Is Redbox new to your area, or have they been around for awhile? Do you find yourself renting/watching more movies since Redbox came around?

    Hey honey let’s visit the Empire state Building.

    What a great idea.

    Is that a redbox?

    Well i think it is.

    Screw going to the observation deck, we must rent Australia.

    They may have rented 37 million dvd’s but that have not served 37 million customers.

      Actually I believe its 37 million customers redbox rents out at least a million dvds a day they even had 1.3 million in a single day!

    Is it possible to let us know when Redbox installs a new Kiosks in a new area?
    I located a Redbox at a Walgreen’s in my area that was not listed on their site, after 2 months of repeated calls they finally listed it and now I can reserve movies at that location, you would think Redbox would want to list their new locations ASAP, but this was not the case in my area.

    You know a great spot would be in a Hotel in the lobby
    that way the guest could rent as they come in and drop it off on the way
    out the next day.

        I’m going to guess that hotels get much more profit from the 5-6 dollar movies that you buy through the TV than they would get from having the redbox. (assuming there was not additional consumers using the box that did not stay at the hotel).

          i guess hotels have exclusives to the new movies. they always have the latest of the latest.

          By 5 to 6 dollar you mean 10-15. I’m in a hotel in Seattle, and normal movies (ie non-adult) are $14 and $15. Not even movies I’d want to see.

          I live in Manhattan, but those locations are way out of the way. They need to make a deal with Duane Reade or something similar. They do huge business in Manhattan. They could easily bump it up to $2/night, and they’d still rent just as much.

            PS. If we don’t wind up getting drinks after the thing I’m here for, I’m going to grab a redbox movie from a few blocks away. It would be nice in the hotel, but I can walk a few blocks to save $13 ;)
