Bye Bye, Blue Machines! Redbox Takes Over Blockbuster Express Kiosks

redbox taking over blockbuster express

Watch out, Netflix! Redbox is comin' for you next!

Yesterday, Redbox parent company Coinstar announced that they'd be purchasing NCR's Blockbuster Express DVD rental kiosks for $100 million!

For the moment, the Blockbuster Express machines will remain blue, but soon enough we'd say they're likely to turn red.

Here's what an NCR spokesman had to say about the deal:

"Once the deal is completed, NCR will have no need for the Blockbuster license. NCR will be out of the owner-operator business in entertainment."

Between this deal and Coinstar/Redbox's newly-reported fourth quarter revenue of $520.5 million, we'd say 2012 is going to be a good year for RB!

Do U utilize Blockbuster Express DVD rental kiosks? Are U happy to hear that they're going red???

    I think its sad to see Blockbuster going out.. They however were very stupid to sell out the international divisions (for example Canada) to save the american division when the American part seems to have no hope of survival…. Even though the international parts were doing much better.. Oh blockbuster…stupid mistakes you have made :(

    Whoa big P you are so outta touch today. Seriously.
    Red box has been taking over for the last year, key words "last year" as in so last year.
    NETFLIX where you can download instantly without having to walk drive or even look at the red box.
    NET FLIX. Duh! Hello 2012!
