Redbox Agrees to Stop Selling Disney Movie Download Codes

First of all...who knew that Redbox was still in business? Secondly, just wait until Disney no longer allows ANYONE else to license their content. Trust me, that is coming next.

The case began when Redbox got a hold of Disney's "combo packs," comprising a Blu-ray disc, a DVD and a digital code. Redbox's traditional business has been renting kiosks in  in retail stores throughout the nation. Streaming services like Netflix and Hulu have disrupted that business. To compete, Redbox disassembled the "combo packs" and sold the download codes cheaply and separately.
