Arrow Redbox to Roll-Out 4K UHD BD Rentals

Redbox to Roll-Out 4K Rentals

At the Digital Entertainment Group’s (DEG) CES party last evening, redbox announced it would begin a rollout of UltraHD Blu-ray disc rentals starting in some test markets. There was no mention of which markets would be selected – or how many of them would be included – just that the UltraHD trial would begin in markets that already show a strong interest in Blu-ray disc rental.

This is huge news for 4K movie lovers, as there has yet been a way to enjoy 4K movies without buying them. And we all know there are plenty of movies you’d love to see…once. When asked about price one representative told me that hadn’t been finalized but that she expected it to command a slight premium over current Blu-ray rentals, which currently cost $2.00, estimating around $2.50 - $3.00 per rental.

Redbox Begins Renting 4K Titles

The trial markets are: New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, Detroit, Austin and Miami. And the four 4K discs are: Black Panther, The Matrix, The Martian and The Commuter.

Despite the limited number, Redbox promises to soon expand the 4K lineup with such titles as Red Sparrow, Inception and the 2018 edition of Tomb Raider. It’s unclear when the extra titles will be available, or when Redbox will expand the offering beyond the initial six markets.

The company said the 4K rentals are now available in 2,500 kiosks in the six trial markets.

The company said the price for the 4K discs will be $2.50 per night, which is 75 cents more than a DVD nightly rental and 50 cents more than a regular Blu-ray nightly rental.
