Redbox Free Live TV Adds New Channels and Expands Availability of its Free Streaming Service Delivering Even More Movies, TV Series and Short-Form Content to Redbox Audiences
Redbox, America’s destination for new-release movies and entertainment, has added more than 10 channels to its growing lineup of entertainment available on Redbox’s Free Live TV. The service now has more than 50 channels delivering a wide-range of popular movies, television programming and short-form content, including three Redbox Branded channels curated for the tastes of Redbox customers – Redbox Rush, Redbox Comedy, and Redbox Movies.
New and recently launched channels include America’s Test Kitchen, Complex, The Design Network, Real Nosey, Funny or Die, beIN Sports, Outside TV, Chive TV, Voyager Documentaries, Hungry and Just for Laughs Gags. In addition to the new channels, Free Live TV is now available through the Redbox app on Android TVs.
Redbox Free Live TV can be enjoyed via Redbox.com, Roku®, iOS and Android devices; Apple TV, Android TV, Vizio Smart TVs, LG TVs and Chromecast. Redbox will launch new channels and great content throughout the year. The service doesn’t require a login, just click “Free Live TV”, choose a channel and start watching.
“Our linear TV service is growing fast, with total hours watched and time spent per user reaching new records in July.” said Chris Yates, General Manager, Redbox On Demand. “We’re excited to continue growing our business both with new content, increased distribution and new features to help our customers find and watch great content, however they want to watch it.”
Current events, including safer-at-home orders in many communities nationwide and the social justice movements, have driven an increase in consumption of News, DIY and Cooking channels.
With the launch of Redbox Free Live TV, the company continues to transform itself into a multi-channel content provider and programmer. Last year, Redbox launched Redbox Entertainment, a new division to produce and distribute original content across its service. Through Redbox Entertainment, the company is developing a slate of movies that will be available through Redbox VOD and at the Box.
Redbox is America’s leading destination for new-release movies and entertainment with more ways to watch than any other home entertainment provider. Redbox delivers value and convenience through unparalleled choice across content, platforms, rental and purchase options, and price points – including free live TV. Redbox Entertainment, a new content acquisition and production division, has further transformed Redbox into a multi-channel content provider and programmer. The company’s expanding streaming offering complements its nationwide footprint of more than 41,000 entertainment kiosks, conveniently located where consumers already shop.
