Redbox Automated Retail, LLC and the Navy Exchange Service Command (NEXCOM) announced they will expand the availability of redbox DVD rental kiosks at Navy Exchanges located on U.S. Naval installations.
According to the statement, Redbox is the exclusive supplier of DVD rental kiosks to NEXCOM and currently more than 66 redbox kiosks can be found on 47 of the 56 Naval installations in the continental U.S. The company expects to install approximately 20 additional kiosks at NEXCOM bases throughout 2010, including Pearl Harbor this summer.
“We are proud to work with NEXCOM to provide servicemen and women and their families with convenient access to affordable, new release DVD rentals at Naval bases across the U.S.,” said Mitch Lowe, president, redbox. “Redbox kiosks can be found in more than 21,000 convenient locations nationwide and we are pleased to include U.S. Naval bases among our growing number of locations.”
“As vending machine technology and secured communications became available, the Navy Exchange Service Command wanted to utilize these advances to increase DVD rental availability to our active duty personnel and their families,” said Richard Dow, Senior Vice President Operations, NEXCOM. “Outside machine placement, secure credit card acceptance and vendor service were key points in moving forward. Today, we are providing approximately 18,000 DVDs per week. The program benefits include convenient access to machines, reserving DVDs online and DVD returns to any redbox machine nationwide. We are excited about the success and especially the value to our customers with a ‘$1 per day rental.’ This is truly a great service and benefit to our Navy family.”
