AOL Bundles Redbox, iTunes in New Service1 Oct, 2013 By: Chris Tribbey
AOL is offering a new subscription service that bundles together offerings from Redbox, Pandora and others for a discount.
Dubbed Gathr, the service offers a series of pre-bundled options, or users can pick and choose among 20 company offerings. For $20 a month, users can get five one-day DVD rentals from Redbox, an ad-free subscription to Pandora One and a $25 gift card to Restaurant.com, with a bonus $10 gift card to Amazon.
Fandango, Redbox games, ABCMouse.com and PBS Kids Play are the entertainment options currently available.
“With Gathr there is no mandatory contract length or commitment — and it’s available on desktop and accessible via smartphones and tablet devices, ensuring you can take Gathr with you, anytime, anywhere,” wrote David Smith, VP of product and marketing for AOL.
