I just got an email from Redbox that explains what is going on with the 60 older movies added to Redbox kiosks today…
Personally, I don’t know if I will rent any of these, but perhaps if something comes along that I would love to see and it is convenient, I may change my mind.
I think this program is more geared to those who just go to browse at a Redbox kiosk. If they don’t find the new release they are looking for, a “big name” older title may get them to rent something, more so than some of the direct-to-video and B-movie discs.
So far we have seen mixed reviews here on the site about this. I guess all that really matters is if people rent them or not, so if they disappear in the future, we know it didn’t work out.
So, there you have it. Do you think you might check out some of these titles?
