reported previously that Redbox and Verizon had entered into a joint venture to bring a new video rental service option to consumers that could rival Netflix. Well, it looks like Coinstar's Redbox was not done there as they have purchased the entertainment division of a company called NCR for $100 million. NCR is in the business of operating self-service solutions such as ATM machines, point of sales and retail systems, airline check-in systems, and even the kiosks that are branded as Blockbuster Express kiosks. The purchase will include DVD kiosks, certain retailer contracts, and DVD inventory from NCR's entertainment line of business. This move will bring Redbox to more consumers nationwide by re-branding all Blockbuster Express kiosks to Redbox kiosks.
