  1. Redbox, the company most known for their Video rental kiosks not too long ago had started an instant streaming service.. the service was essentially failure and barely used.. they calculated that they were not making as much money on it than they thought they would've.. I read a little bit on it and some of the reports were saying that some months they were spending more money than they actually made on the service.. totally not surprised it's shutting down.. The service will be deactivated on October 7th, 2014.

    Don't fret though Redbox Kiosk users; they will still be there for your rental needs.. the Kiosks are the base of that company and even with all the promotions they still make a solid amount of money on it per month.

  2. They have a streaming service? lol. Put xbox one in the damn kiosks.

  3. Yeah I'm kinda pissed they haven't invested their money in the current generation consoles instead of the streaming service.. would make them a bit more money.. I know I'm definitely interested in doing that.. I really wanna play Dead Rising 3 again but I don't wanna re-buy it after trading it straight up for the new NHL game.
