Redbox Has More U.S. Locations Than Blockbuster26 Nov, 2007 By: Billy Gil
Redbox recently launched its 6,000th automated DVD rental kiosk, giving the Oakbrook Terrace, Ill.-based company the edge over Blockbuster in terms of number of U.S. locations, according to Redbox.
“Redbox offers a level of service and convenience that our competitors simply can't provide,” said Gregg Kaplan, Redbox CEO. “Customers continue to embrace the Redbox service, and our proven technology and production timeline have allowed us to expand rapidly in the competitive home entertainment industry.”
Redbox kiosks can be found in such locations as McDonald's restaurants and grocery stores in 46 states. The kiosks feature a selection of more than 500 titles, each available for rental at $1 per night. The company expects to be operational in all 50 states by the end of the year.
“We expect this growth to continue at a rapid pace through 2007 and beyond as Redbox expands its leadership position and becomes a household name in communities nationwide,” Kaplan said.
