Good for those who still visit its kiosks. Earn points every time you rent a movie and put them toward free rentals and purchases at the kiosk.
Redbox Live TV is a way to watch live movies and TV shows any time you want for free. It’s an ad-supported option from Redbox that doesn’t require you to create an account or enter any personal information. As long as you have a compatible device, you can watch hours of content easily without commitment.
While it does well in offering a few popular channels like TMZ and USA Today, a lot of its Live TV content is rather out of syndication. Even the Redbox original channels don’t bring much to the table in ways of recent TV, but there are a few programs you might find familiar.
Access Redbox On Demand through your TV, phone and mobile devices. However, some iOS mobile products are incompatible with the Redbox On Demand app. Apple users should visit Redbox On Demand’s website to rent and buy movies.
