Redbox Instant launches on Roku devices


Redbox Instant by Verizon, the streaming service that combines a Netflix-like subscription plan with DVD rentals through Redbox kiosks, launched its app on Roku devices Monday. The new app will be available on all second- and third-generation Roku devices, and offer access to some 5500 movies as part of the subscription plan, according to Redbox. GigaOM first reported in May that Redbox Instant was planning to launch on Roku devices, and the company now  seems to be eyeing Google’s Chromecast streaming adapter.
