It’s not only Blockbuster that sees Redbox as a threat anymore…
According to Reed Hastings, CEO of Netflix, they are really starting to keep an eye on Redbox, and see them as their number one competitor by the end of the year.
Personally, I see them as complementary services right now. I am subscribed to the Netflix 1-at-a-time unlimited plan, which allows me to watch as many movies as I want from their online streaming catalog, and about 1 per week from the standard by-mail service. Currently, I use them for Blu-ray rentals, as my Redbox doesn’t have blu-ray yet.
What do you think? Do you use both, or has Redbox caused you to cancel or downcgrade your Netflix subscription?
