PlayStation 3 Getting Redbox Instant Streaming App

PlayStation 3 owners in the U.S. will be getting the Redbox Streaming app giving them access to thousands of movies. Those who pay $8 a month for the Redbox membership will be able to access the library of films like Whit House Down, Marvel’s The Avengers, Dredd and The Hunger Games. The subscription also comes with 4 free rentals per month at a physical Redbox kiosk.

The Ps3 app also includes an exclusive feature called The Playlist, that creates collection of movies curated around themes like “Stuff Blowing Up” and “Beards on Film.” If you don’t subscribe the service, you can still use the app to purchase or rent films on demand as well as find and reserve movies at physical Redbox locations.
