This campaign was a little different form the campaigns I have taken a part of in the past. This campaign had no physical BzzKit. I received instructions on how to sign up for Verizon Redbox Instant via my BzzCampaigns page. 

I believe that anyone could sign up for this "sneak peak" because it is just a beta site trial run. I do not believe you had to be a BzzAgent, or even invited. 

Sign Up

It was so easy and quick to sign up for Redbox Instant. All I had to do was fill out basic billing information with a credit card and hit 'agree'. The terms or service were slightly confusing for me, but I 'agreed" anyways. I know that I will be billed after my one month free trial. It will be $8 a month. Once signed up, I instantly came down with a case of buyers remorse. The instant plays you can watch are nothing I have every heard of. I have no interest in them. I am hoping I find myself liking this as much as I like Netflix.  ( I will have to remember to cancel before the free trial month is over. )

Content Selection

Of course I had to give it a fair shot so I searched and searched for something to watch instantly in their "Subscription" section which is the instant play on your computer type movies and shows. The only thing that even slightly interested me at the time was the Katy Perry documentary which i have in my DVD queue on Netflix right now because it is not available for instant. I was slightly surprised that Verizon could offer it for free. 

Other than that one, I did not see too much that interested me on the site. There were a lot of made for tv movies, cheap knock offs of popular children's cartoon/animated movies, and vulgar comedies from the early 2000's. 

This site is very hard to navigate and truly aggravating to even figure out.

... I will just let the pictures do all the talking on this one. 

Credits 

As well as instant play movies that they call your "subscription" plays, you also get movie credits that can be used at physical redbox locations, or for instantly watching new releases on your computer. 

Yes, that means that if you are out of credits you get charged more than your $8 a month if you want to rent a physical dvd, or watch something new. 

However, the selection is much better. (Although still very limited)

Worth $8 a month?!

In my opinion?

 HELL-TO-THE-NO !

I will be unsubscribing from Redbox Instant by Verizon (such a long name too.... ) and I will continue to use Netflix. 

Sadly I would not even continue to use this site if it was a free service.
