Redbox Instant by Verizon and the PS3 system also unveiled The Playlist, a specially-curated, rotating collection of Redbox Instant by Verizon movies that highlights the most exciting titles from the subscription movie library. Built specifically with the PlayStation gamer in mind and featured on the main dashboard, The Playlist channel will be updated frequently and serve as a great destination for fast, simple and fun movie discovery.

Additionally, both subscribers and non-subscribers can take advantage of the Redbox Instant by Verizon online store to purchase and rent new releases on-demand.
