Redbox on Sept. 21 announced it has launched two more free ad-supported streaming TV (FAST) channels — “Redbox War and Westerns” and “Redbox Rewind.”
In addition to offering these channels via the Redbox app — which is available on a wide range of devices including Roku, Samsung, Vizio, LG, Android TV and Xbox — Redbox expects to syndicate these company-owned channels to other streaming platforms in the coming months.
Redbox continues to rapidly expand its FAST channel streaming service, which recently surpassed 100 channels. The company’s “Redbox Free Movie Channel” is currently available via the Redbox app and syndicated to The Roku Channel and Vizio WatchFree+.
Redbox Rewind offers popular movies from the 1980s, ’90s and early 2000s. Films streaming now include the ’90s teen movie Can’t Hardly Wait, starring Jennifer Love Hewitt, the Notre Dame football classic Rudy, and Earth Girls are Easy, starring Geena Davis and Jeff Goldblum.
Redbox War and Western offers such classic war movies and Westerns as The Quick and the Dead, starring Sharon Stone and Leonardo DiCaprio; the timeless “Bonanza”; and The Trench, with Daniel Craig.
“Movies from the Rewind and War and Westerns channels have proven enormously popular with our audience,” said Chris Yates, GM of Redbox On Demand.
