Verizon and Redbox team up for movie streaming

It seems Verizon is planning a joint venture with Redbox to offer movie streaming and TV shows through Android, Google TV, Xbox, and iOS. It’s assumed the service will be much like that of Netflix, but with a slight twist on how users will purchase content. If you’ve ever traveled to your local gas station and picked up a Redbox rental, then you would know they only charge a dollar per rental. The catch is, if you don’t return the item before the same time the following day - you’re slapped with a late fee.

You no longer need to hack things to rent movies on your Android device right from the Android Market in the UK.

Android Market movie rental service being blocked on rooted devices

This is a surprise to read and hear. From Google, Team Android, and everything being "open" this sure looks to be a little different.

All we have is a comment on a Google Support page so this may not be completely true, hopefully its not.
