Redbox testing slightly higher DVD rental rates.

The movie kiosk market leader is experimenting with a small-scale, minor price bump. And no matter how it's received by consumers, at least one analyst sees a permanent nationwide rate increase as not only plausible, but fair.

Please note that the reactions from the complete site will be synched below.

Although Redbox doesn’t have a large selection (especially Blu-Ray), it’s fairly cheap for the occasional user like me. No contract either. When I was a member of Netflix, the disks would just sit around on the most part which is really not cost effective.

At least so far Redbox is not trying to shove streaming down or throats like Netflix.

The small bump in price for DVD users really isn’t very significant.

Once you start using redbox you usually get a “free” rental for every so many you rent.
About a month ago or a little more they had 54 cent rentals of DVDs for a couple of days anyway.

And if you like them (or whatever it’s called) on Facebook, I think you get a free rental on the first Tuesday of every month.
