JUST WHAT THE DOCTOR PRESCRIBED? REDBOX AT CVS

August 6, 2010 by · Leave a Comment 

Representing a significant expansion, Coinstar’s Redbox said on Thursday that it has signed a deal witH CVS to install more than 6,000 of its DVD/Blu-ray Disc rental kiosks at the pharmacy retail outlets by the end of 2011. Redbox currently counts 23,000 locations. Coinstar has been engaged in a bruising battle with NCR Corp., which produces the similar (but larger) Blockbuster Express kiosks and which earlier this year announced plans to roll out 5,000 additional rental kiosks before the end of this year, doubling its current number. But some analysts have suggested that in many areas, NCR is picking up locations that Coinstar has rejected.
