Verizons Redbox Instant streaming video and DVD rental service is coming to the Roku family of set-top boxes. The company announced today that anyone with a recent Roku player (2, 3 , HD , LT , or Streaming Stick ) will be able to stream some 5,500 movies and reserve physical discs (680 titles) for pickup at Redboxs signature kiosks. The service runs $8 a month, or $9 if you want Blu-rays

The announcement adds to Redbox's existing stable of supported platforms, including iOS, Android, the Xbox 360, and LG and Samsung smart TVs. We took a look at Redbox Instant in March and found that the selection was a little lackluster, but your mileage may vary. If you want to see whats on offer before dropping any cash on the service, Verizon is offering a one-month free trialjust check the New section of the Roku Channel Store to get set up.
