23% is a very vague figure without being more specific than "DVD". In any event, whatever the 23% means is going to be the bottom of the barrel crap anyway. Box office is what matters.
I think this clarifies it:

He also noted that there will be 23% fewer DVD titles released during the third quarter compared with the same quarter in 2011, but expected titles like Lionsgate’s The Hunger Games and The Lorax from Universal Studios Home Entertainment to carry Redbox profits.

I don't bother with renting, streaming, amazon, etc ...
Walmart is a couple of zip codes away so I'm pretty much Amazon's bitch.

Isn't Redbox's revenue driven by new releases? If that is so then 23% fewer releases - releases THEY WOULD STOCK means less transactions.

It's your assumption that they would stock it. For all we know it's crap that would never made it in their kiosks to begin with. That 23% claim smells like a smokescreen to me, especially in light of the massive titles coming out in that quarter. But go ahead and believe what you want. Box office power is what matters in rental just like in sell through. There are always plenty enough titles to rent, especially in a kiosk.

Sorry Bruce - it really isn't an exact science - or else you wouldn't have instances like MI4.

Nor something like this happening:

Finally got a Redbox by my house (that replaced the Blockbuster Kiosk). Worked for ONE day and has been out of service every sense. I complained and got 3 free promo codes but gees...let me rent already! What's sad is it has 5 Blu-ray films while another up the street has about 20! I had to return my rented Blu-ray to the bigger machine which kind of sucks...was hoping to help stock my current one with movies.

Side note - they are getting Pirahna 3DD as a Blu-ray exclusive Tuesday (month early?). Hope to actually rent that one.

Nice, no delays. Obviously Sony doesn't feel sell through is affected much by have cheap rentals available on street date. I think what Warner and Fox underestimate is that having immediately availability offers greater exposure to the movies and is basically free advertising, which may offset any lost sales due to cheap rentals.

I usually just stick to [email protected] through Dish. I have a problem returning Redbox movies on time.
