Redbox is America’s destination for affordable and convenient new-release movie and video game rentals. About a million discs (and sometimes a whole lot more) are rented from our kiosks every single day. That adds up to more than 5 billion rentals since we launched in 2002 when My Big Fat Greek Wedding and Men in Black II were hot rentals.

Redbox is the best entertainment deal on the planet, and we should know – we’re everywhere. We have more locations in the U.S. than Starbucks and McDonald’s combined, so it’s not hard to find us. You’ll also find the lowest prices imaginable for today’s biggest hits. With DVD rentals for just $1.50 a night, renting a new-release movie from Redbox is half the cost of a new-release cable movie rental, and we don’t require a monthly subscription fee. Our latest innovation to bring entertainment to the masses – we’re now selling previously-viewed movies and video games for amazingly low prices.

Brief History

Redbox revolutionized the way Americans rent movies when it was founded in 2002 on the belief that consumers deserved a convenient way to rent new-release movies at a low nightly price.

Soon after testing began within McDonald’s Ventures LLC, Redbox started counting its locations and rentals by the hundreds instead of the handfuls. During the peak period of installations, new kiosks appeared every hour, every day, 365 days a year to keep up with retailer interest and customer demand.

In 2010, Redbox rented its 1 billionth disc and also started renting Blu-ray™ Discs. Video games made their debut nationally in 2011.

Today, Redbox is located at some of the largest retailers nationwide, where Americans have rented more than 5 billion discs.

Let’s do some math:

  • When laid end-to-end, 5 billion discs could wrap around the world 15 times.
  • 5 billion rentals adds up to more than 10 billion hours of movie-watching mania.
  • New-release movie rentals used to cost a whole lot more a night, so our math tells us we’ve saved Americans about a gazillion dollars over the years.

The Redbox team works hard every day – in your local communities to uphold our promise to bring you a constantly updated selection of the newest hit movies and video games.
