Good morning, it’s Monday, April 26, 2010, and this is your first early morning digital briefing.
Windowing is clearly emerging for the rental video market – you have go to Blockbuster (and pay extra) for new releases but you can watch them for cheaper via Redbox or Netflix if you’re willing to wait a month. Just in time for the release of Avatar, Redbox has reached long-term agreements with 20th Century Fox and Universal Studios to make DVD and Blu-ray titles available via their 21,000+ $1/day kiosks, 28 days after the studios’ home video releases. The deal mirrors the one struck with Warner Bros. earlier this year. As part of the agreement, which will also bring an end to the long-standing lawsuits between the start-up and the studios, Redbox has agreed to destroy DVDs and Blu-ray discs following their lifespan in the rental kiosks.
