Red Box says too much competition, might go away

What an idea. Grab a DVD movie selection from a Kiosk at a nearby store, post $1 or so to your Debit and grab a DVD on the run.  Then return it at any  Red Box Kiosk  no matter how far from your original pickup. Then came On-Line Reserve of a DVD so its there at the Red Box Kiosk preferred.  In 2012 they added 7500 Kiosks but last year only 300.  The company says a decline in business and long waits for New Releases-restrictions , is beginning to show,   that we may be on the way out.  They plan to remove 500 Kiosk’s soon.-  Mark Christopher
