Redbox Instant™ by Verizon Coming to the Playstation®4 System at Launch

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Nov 7, 2013) - In a collaborative effort to offer gamers more access to a complete home entertainment experience, Redbox Instant™ by Verizon today announced its app will be available on the PlayStation®4 (PS4™) system in the U.S. when it launches on November 15. Redbox Instant by Verizon will also feature the PlayStation®-exclusive The Playlist movie collections.

"We're pleased to continue our partnership with PlayStation by bringing Redbox Instant by Verizon to PS4," said Shawn Strickland, CEO of Redbox Instant by Verizon. "With the launch of our app and the customized The Playlist collections, gamers can always find a great movie to enjoy that fits their specific interests."

Redbox Instant by Verizon is a great service for everyone who loves movies. For only $8 a month, a Redbox Instant by Verizon subscription plan includes four rental nights to enjoy the newest releases available on DVD at any Redbox kiosk nationwide, plus the ability to stream thousands of popular movies instantly. A Blu-ray package is also available for an extra dollar. That means, if you missed a movie while it was in theaters, you can head to the kiosk and grab a disc to enjoy the movie before it's available on other subscription services.

Additionally, both subscribers and non-subscribers can take advantage of the Redbox Instant by Verizon online store to purchase and rent new releases on-demand.

The Playlist, featured exclusively on PlayStation, is a specially-curated, rotating collection of Redbox Instant by Verizon movies that highlights the most exciting titles from the subscription movie library. Built specifically with the PlayStation gamer in mind and featured on the main dashboard, The Playlist channel will be updated frequently and serve as a great destination for fast, simple and fun movie discovery.

Upon launch, PS4 system users can simply visit the PS Store and download the Redbox Instant by Verizon app with The Playlist channel directly to their system.

For those new to the service, Redbox Instant by Verizon offers a free month of movies with a subscription that includes unlimited streaming of its collection of hit movies and four DVD rental nights.
