Redbox Oct. 7 announced it has expanded distribution of its streaming app to the PlayStation 5 console. Now available to download for free, consumers will be able to stream ad-supported VOD movies and TV shows, as well as more than 100 free ad-supported TV (FAST) channels.
The app also gives consumers access to new release movies for rent or purchase through Redbox’s transactional VOD service, including Candyman and Stillwater. The kiosk disc rental company also announced that its streaming app would soon be available on the PlayStation 4 console as well.
Redbox has aggressively ramped its streaming efforts and has grown the number of devices its app is available on, including increasing the number of titles and channels available for free. Movies streaming this month for free include The Last Witch Hunter, Beverly Hills Ninja and Dick, the latter starring Kirsten Dunst and Michelle Williams.
“We’re thrilled that our app is now available on the PlayStation 5,” Chris Yates, GM of Redbox On Demand, said in a statement. “We have so much great content to discover, and we’re constantly adding more films and TV shows, as well as free TV channels.”
