The Decline of Redbox...What Happened? PetSmart vs. Petco 1 month ago   13:16

Company Man
There's a great story behind Redbox. They've become somewhat of a household name and are now the #1 source of DVD and Blu-Ray rentals. Yet, over the last few years they've experienced a noticeable decline. This video takes a look at their rise and possible fall while attempting to provide reasoning behind it.

Around 2001, living in Washington state, I got a letter in the mail asking me to invest in a new thing called Red Box. The letter I got was asking me to invest 10k.

I've heard the version of the DVDs from Redbox doesn't have any extras on it; just the movie and nothing else.
Nick Gagnon
I use Redbox all the time.

Netflix is coming up soon. And I'm happy about that

You can "rent" movies online for about 5 bucks to stream them. Doesn't even require you to exit your own house! Redbox used to be wonderful alternative to Blockbuster,but I don't see any lines for the Redboxes in my neighborhood like I used to just a few years ago.

Man I used to rent red box all the time but then Netflix came out. But Netflix sucks now and Idek if my redbox still exists

“McRentals” haha. Sounds like a shady timeshare broker. Their business practices are rather, might you say, greasy.

I rent from red box all the time.

There's a Redbox in every size Walmart or Kroger in my area. And a lot in gas stations too. I live in the Jackson MS metro area

What Redbox should do is open a Netflix account with multiple passwords that work only one time for a set amount of time. Then sell each password so people don't have to sign up for Netflix but can still watch a movie.

I love RedBox. I got to try many movies and games with it.

Video Droid in 1982! Wow if Google didn't buy youtube and had only android I can see video droid being the name of an android brand for a video app.

I remember going with my mom to Walgreens to go to a red box and get a movie

Who else be tryna break the redbox machine and fucking with it?

I wouldn’t bank on Redboxes, there is a greater chance that you will be getting a scratched dvd or disc. Believe me.

I’ll rent a video game from redbox to try it before I buy it.

You should do an episode on Blockbuster's DVD rental kiosks. They were God awful imo, it worked similar to Redbox but not quite. You could rent DVDs etc from their kiosks HOWEVER you had to return it to the exact same kiosk you rented it from. Unlike Redbox where you can return can DVD or Blu-ray to literally any of there kiosks.

I used to work at a grocery store, get off at 1am, renting a movie from redbox felt like 2 days because I could go home and watch or sleep and what felt like the following day was actually the same day. I didn't have to return it until the next day at 9, so I had the movie for 44hrs.

Nowadays if i rent a movie from redbox, i try to return it the next day but usually i keep it for 2 or 3 days, sometimes a week. And with the cost being nearly double (I should mention I always get the blu ray version), it becomes costly. Therefore I usually rent straight from my tv itself on google play, $6 dollars for the 4k version but I dont have to worry about returning it and paying more.

There's a redbox at the 7-11 across the street from our apartment complex, but honestly I don't see people using it that often. And I frequent that store a lotttttttttt. Once in a blue moon someone will be using it but that's it. I personally have never used one though. We started streaming Netflix long before and rely on that and Amazon Prime streaming pretty much exclusively. I haven't rented a dvd in 15 years at least.
Stuart Andrews
The reason for their decline is likely market saturation. You can only expand so much. The curve you have shown matches a market saturation curve almost exactly. Red Box will have to find other markets if they want to survive.
