Redbox's new streaming service has a lot of growing up to do. Right now it's barely worth buying a subscription unless you love bad Asylum films and repackaged Moonbeam titles from the 90s. However, the Redbox Instant app for Android devices just got a leg up on many of the other premium video apps. In a recent app update, Redbox added support for rooted Android devices.
Redbox Instant has received a lot of negative reviews due to its rooted device ban, and limited library of subscription streaming content. Some users have already bumped up their one star ratings now that ban has been lifted, but Redbox is going to have to find a way to offer more premium content if they ever want to compete with Netflix and Amazon Prime. Redbox does offer 4 free kiosk DVD rentals to make up for the limited library of new release titles, but this still not enough to convert most streaming fans.
