Using Redbox on your Windows computer is actually very easy but if you are new to this process, you will definitely need to pay attention to the steps listed below.

The importance of the emulator is that it emulates or immitates an android environment on your computer, making it super easy to install and run android apps from the comfort of your PC without buying a phone that runs android. Who says you cannot enjoy both worlds? To begin, you can download such an emulator app made by too top dogs in the space.
A. Nox App . OR
B. Bluestacks App .
Personally, I recommend the "B" option as Bluestacks is very popular so if you run into any trobles using it, you can find good solutions on Google or Bing (lol). 

2: Now Install the Software Emulator on your Windows PC

If you successfully downloaded the Bluestacks.exe or Nox.exe, go to your Downloads folder on your computer or anywhere you ususally store downloaded files.
Once you have find it, click it to install the application. It should start the installation process on your PC.
Click Next to accept the EULA License agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application.
If you do the above correctly, the Software will be successfully installed.

  • Making renting a Redbox DISC so convenient

    By Ocsabot
    I use the Redbox app to search for movies, read prior ratings and check the star rating. With the location finder I check and see if the movie or game is by specific location. My only complaint is that when I take the time to search for a movie, save, pay for and then head to pick it up there’s a person there already that is using the Redbox machine to research, save, pay and then pick up a movie. One time I actually waited for ten minutes for a person to pick out a movie, as they walked away I swiped my card, pushed a confirmation button and took the movie back to my vehicle. The person the was ahead of me had also just arrived at their car. They apologized for the wait and I told them it was not a problem, he then asked how I got my movie so quick, so I showed them the Redbox app!
  • Must Have App

    By inkman2000
    The Redbox app is an essential app for any movie lover. If you watch rentals at home this app is for you. Redbox keeps you up to date on new releases so you never miss that one movie you wanted to see really bad but with time passing it slipped your mind. They also have a rewards program where you can earn free rentals. For gamers this is app also lets you know of the latest releases. I use it to make sure that the games are not going to disappoint me. This way I do not spend the money I work so hard for on a game that disappoints. It is easy quick and fast to use Redbox and the app also helps you find kiosk locations and what each location has available. Want a certain title the app will find a Redbox with it and allow you to reserve it so that it is there when you get there. Great app and well thought out. Install it today.
  • Update better but still needs work

    By Very disappointed 1037373839
    Your update is a much improved from your previous so good job. However, the streaming part is super confusing. Your directions (on movie detail page) are ‘on demand movies rented from redbox are available here’ do I go to a redbox kiosk to rent a streaming movie? Seems f’d up. Had to do a google search to find out how to do this. Tell me how to do it in the app. And when I go to the ‘more’ section make ‘how it works’ info specific for an iPhone! Should be so much better than how it is, I would be streaming movies if I could only figure out how to do it. Also you need to add a ‘send feedback’ option in your app. Had you had that wouldn’t of tanked your rating here. Also on the movie detail page map. If I tap ‘show map’ and tap on a kiosk icon on the map let me know what kiosk it is... there’s 20+ kiosks in the list below and I have no way of knowing which it is but I know that’s the one I want to rent from.
  • Redbox

    For a film lover like myself this app is key to have; it keeps you updated on what's at the Redbox, which one to go to, which ones are closest to you, and you can even reserve stuff to a Redbox of your choice. If you're impatient, like me, the reservation part of the app is killer; you pick your movie(s), find a box that has all of the ones you want, swing by the box, hit one button, swipe your card, and walk away. If you're 90, you might need your grandson to help you out with this app, but all in all it's pretty user shows you what is newest, top rated, what's coming, and descriptions of each movie. The Redbox also offers games, but I don't have a system nor have I rented a game from one so I don't have any experience in discussing that side of this. If you rent from Redbox often, get this app.
  • It’s Tolerable

    By Jfdexghffsgvhfdd
    This app is so incredibly slow. I wish the UI was a bit more user friendly and intuitive as well. From not making your account settings readily available in all screens to making the location search function not resize to appropriate sizes for all phone sizes, the whole thing feels clunky and behind times. The other part I’m not a fan of is having to save a cc instead of having Apple Pay integrated or being allowed to enter my cc in each time. So for me and my preference of security that means each time I rent I have to go into my profile, add the cc I want to use, rent my items, then make sure to delete the cc off my profile. It’s a process I don’t like doing, but I’m not ok with sites storing my card info. Overall, this is an ok app. It has potential to be very good, and I like the loyalty program, but there is a lot to be improved before it doesn’t feel like a v1.0 app.
  • India outsourcing customer service

    By Zedgie Is Now Sad
    REDBOX MANAGEMENT, please, please,please! Stop outsourcing your customer service! Each time I had to speak to “Customer Service”, the people/company you’ve handed over Redboxs’ customers to don’t cast a good light on the company. There is such a problem with communication and understanding that it takes so much longer to resolve an issue that, in the end, you customers are frustrated even more than when the dialog began. On top of that, it leave customer doubting that they’ve been understood or if the issue has been genuinely taken care of to meet the users needs. I certainly hope this issue is addressed at your next corporate meeting. I respect Redbox and the many services they provide. I would be saddened if it became an issue to where there would be cutback of those services due to customers loosing faith in that business. Thank you for all that Redbox provides for our entertainment.
  • New Version is Screwy

    By Canadiancricket
    I have been using the Redbox app for years and it has always been quick and convenient, especially when you only have a couple of minutes in the morning as you’re getting ready for work. This app has changed and is NO LONGER convenient. It is buggy! I went in as usual and when it can time to check out, it told my password was wrong. So I asked for a reset but the reset that was sent to my email didn’t work. I tried this twice! Then I decided to create a new email because I thought it would just be easier. Then, I went in to “create a new account” under that email. When I went to check out, it said it couldn’t accept the card and to use a different one. Really!!?! Here have NEVER been any issues in the past, and now all of these stupid issues?!? What a waste of time!? Why’d don’t you guys just leave the app alone? Such a hassle!
  • Incompatible with reserving movies

    By lh4man
    Isn’t the whole point of the app so that customers can reserve movies and easily pick them up at the box with a single swipe rather than having to sign in at the box, search for the movie (hoping that the box actually has it still), pay, and then wait to be signed out all while inconveniencing anyone waiting in line? That’s how the original app worked. Ever since this has been upgraded, my credit card won’t go through. I’ve tried deleting the info and entering it again to no avail. I also contacted Redbox customer service about the issue and received no help. The girl I spoke with told me it was an issue with my credit card and that I needed to contact them, which was totally inaccurate because I could use it anywhere else including at a Redbox! I’ve seen a tremendous decline in Redbox’s customer service. It’s as if they want to force us all to stream movies online and discontinue the physical boxes.
  • Previous version was better

    By TrainerDi
    This version is so much slower than the previous. And searching in a location other than your current doesn’t fully function. I like to pickup movies closer to home after work since that’s where I’ll be running errands. Even though there are tons of boxes out there, I’ll get “no search results” or just one or two. I also miss the written description of the movie. Now there’s only a trailer to play. I’m not always in a place to play audio, and I can read a synopsis in seconds compared to watching a 2 min trailer. I second the other reviewers frustration, which has nothing to do with the app. Waiting forever for someone to browse and pick and pay for a movie when I’m there to quickly just pick up my paid rental. I haven’t saved any time because of that.
  • New release dates are back

    By CapColaJr
    ..... or maybe they never left and I just couldn’t find it on the latest app version. If you hit “upcoming” and you don’t see the release dates, instead of scrolling left to right tap “browse all” and you will see them in order from week to week so you know what to expect in the future. I no longer have to look on the Internet to find new release dates (like I have to with the other rental kiosk DVDXPRESS). Return time 9 pm eastern is also better with REDBOX vs 7pm DVDXPRESS. My only gripe about the REDBOX app is I can’t rent new movies at midnight like I can on DVDXpress. Years ago I’d stay up Monday night and lock up my rentals. Not sure why REDBOX changed that. Perhaps it’s only a problem in Eastern time zone.
