Redbox Instant’s Android app receives Chromecast support

If you’ve been waiting for Redbox Instant to make its way to Google Chromecast, we have some good news. The Redbox Instant Android app received an update this week, which includes support for Google’s Chromecast dongle, meaning you can now send movies from your phone or tablet to your home television. The update also brings some unspecified bug fixes, so the app should work better overall.

Google’s Chromecast has secured yet another app for its flourishing catalog of supported extensions and services – the Redbox Instant app for Android gained support this week, enabling Google’s army of Chromecasters to beam movies from an Android phone or tablet onto the big screen. The app also received some bug fixes in the process and should run more smoothly as a result.  An $8 monthly subscription to Redbox Instant – which opened to the public in March 2013 – will net you 4 free DVD rentals per month from the traditional Redbox kiosks, in addition to Netflix-style instant streaming online. Users who opt out of paying the monthly fees can still sign up for a simple Redbox Instant account, which will allow them to rent or buy On-Demand movies – $3 gets you unlimited views over a 48-hour period, while $9 lets you buy the movie to watch whenever.
