Redbox Launches Free Streaming Service With Live TV
The streaming space continues to grow as Redbox just threw in their hat into the game as well. The company, mostly known for its DVD kiosks, launched a streaming platform called Free Live TV.
“The tab is home to shows like ‘Forensic Files’ and ‘Family Feud.’ There are news channels with video content from USA Today and TMZ, as well as categories like Epic Viral Videos. Redbox is also throwing in some of its original content,” according to USA Today.
The ad-supported Free Live TV offers some live entertainment free of charge and doesn’t require a subscription, so there is no login or sign up needed. The company is planning on adding the service to smart TVs and the app will be made available on Roku, Apple TV and Chromecast in the coming months.
Free Live TV will compete with other free ad-supported streaming services such as STIRR, Pluto TV, Tubi and Xumo and is currently available on iOS and Android mobile devices.
