$1.50 per night isn’t so bad for Blu-ray rentals. Any time I rent a movie I watch it sometime that night, or early the next morning, so I never have to worry about accidentally paying for an extra night.
I wonder what Redbox’s competitors will do…
People scoff at 50 cent increase for a blu Ray ? Please ! It’s a buck fifty ! What kind of cheapskate buys a blu ray player and complains about 1.50 rentals?!

The same people why buy a Ferrari and then scoff at having to pay for premium gasoline?
$1.50 for a Blu-ray Disc rental is definitely reasonable. I suspect that it will drop down to one dollar as the years roll on and Blu-ray Disc prices decrease further.
