$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…

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.
