Netflix and Google Movies & TV, Redbox Instant launched and completely cut out users who have rooted devices. Verizon and Redbox blocked all users with a rooted device from being able to use and enjoy the app, and we couldn't stream rented movies. Today's update however, has fixed that issue, as well as a few others.
originally launched back in December of last year. At the time the service was only available for those who happened to have a beta invitation though. The good news arrived in March when the beta tag was dropped and the service launched for any and all that wanted to use it. The smartphone and tablet app was available at that time and as of today there is news for those using a Google TV.
Redbox Instant is now available for the pubic. At this point the invitation is no longer needed and signing up requires nothing more than a visit to the Redbox Instant website. Well, that and the action of actually signing up. We should also give the warning right from the beginning, there is a free trial available, however you will need to provide some credit card details in order to get started.
Redbox Instant roll-out officially kicked off today. Albeit in a limited beta form, which simply means that if you don't have an invitation to join then you will be sitting back and waiting for a while. But on that note, it looks like Redbox and Verizon are ready for the users to come.
