Redbox adds Blu-ray discs to kiosks Starting today, kiosks from Redbox will be offering Blu-ray discs for rental in addition to DVDs.
The discs, which will rent for $1.50 (plus tax) per night compared to $1.00 for DVDs, will initially only be available at a little more than half of their locations. As with DVDs, they can be returned to any Redbox kiosk.

The company expects to be stocking Blu-ray discs in all of their kiosks before the end of the year.

The initial selection of Blu-ray discs includes The Book of Eli, Bounty Hunter, Brooklyn's Finest & Green Zone.

With approximately 23,000 locations, Redbox is the leading operator of DVD rental kiosks in the US.

But I've been renting blu-rays from Redbox for over a year now.
No joke.

The 1 redbox I've seen in Australia already has blu-rays in it.

Now it will be harder to get a dvd movie because of the lack of room. blu-rays will take up the space. A lot of people want the same movie.
