If you are currently a Redbox Instant beta participant, you’ll receive an email with a unique code to access the app on Xbox 360 in the coming days. Interested newcomers to the Redbox Instant beta can request entry into the beta by visiting www.RedboxInstant.com.

Stay tuned for more information as we get closer to launch.

Sorry, it's just hard to get excited about these things when they're using the money they make off of Gold to reign in exclusives, then hiding them behind that same Gold paywall.

If gold is required for the nexbox, I won't be getting it. Tired of paying for gold now, barely play it online anyway, and every other benefit is found on the pc without the extra cost.

Can't wait for the app to be available. I will be more than happy to subscribe for $7.99/month to stream and also to get 4 DVDs to rent. Have no plans on dropping Netflix or Amazon Video. Also $35 for a whole year of Xbox Live is pretty cheap (and I only play 1 Multiplayer game online).

I'm guessing this service offers newer stuff than netflix.

Gold will be a part of the next Xbox, that should be a given. We don't know what changes will come with it though I think gold members will get even more features on the new Xbox that will make it even more worth getting.
