Nokia is again leading the way in bringing big-name apps to the Windows Phone platform. For 60 days, the new Redbox Instant app by Verizon will be exclusive to Nokia Lumia phones. After 60 days, it will be available to all Windows Phone 8 users.
App Description from the store:
With Redbox Instant by Verizon, you can:
- Browse and watch movies instantly
- Reserve new releases at your local Redbox
- Rent and buy movies digitally, on demand
About the service:
Redbox Instant by Verizon lets you stream movies from their library to your phone, tablet, computer, or TV — as long as you have an app and a paid subscription. It will cost you $8 per month once your 1st month free deal is over. A plus that this service has over the others is you also get 4 credits per month for video rental at a Redbox kiosk. That’s huge, IMHO. Click here to learn more.
Personally, I’ve yet to try Redbox as I already have HBO, Netflix, and an Amazon Prime subscription for video. But the service does sound intriguing.

With the Windows Phone app store already having an app for Netflix, Hulu, Crackle, and now Redbox Instant, this leaves us wondering when Amazon will finally release an app on Windows Phone for their instant video library. The ecosystem is slowly coming together.
