More than 22,200 Redbox DVD rental kiosks have been installed nationwide, and in the past six months they’ve been installed at a rate of one per hour, 24 hours per day, seven days a week, according to Redbox parent Coinstar.
The total number of kiosks surpassed expectations for 2009, the company said Dec. 10.
“We are delighted with the high retailer and consumer demand for our low-cost, convenient DVD rental service,” said Redbox president Mitch Lowe. “We’re proud of the relationships we’ve established with the top retailers in the U.S. and we continue to identify viable, high-traffic locations where consumers shop to install Redbox kiosks.”
