More competition for Netflix

The streaming plot thickens as Verizon and Redbox officially announce their partnership.

The multi-platform subscription service will have both an online streaming and download component, and offer access to newly released movie DVDs and Blu-rays through Redbox’s 36,800 nationwide kiosks. (Netflix, it’s worth noting, mails its DVDs.) Customers will be able to access the online content on devices such as smartphones, tablets, computers and TVs.

It’s supposed to launch later this year but no word yet on pricing nor how many titles will be available for streaming.
