Redbox to Raise DVD Price this Monday

800,000 subscribers ditched the online rental giant, Netflix, after the whole fiasco of separating its streaming and DVD-by-mail services and hiking up the price for the streaming/DVD combo. Now it looks like Redbox might face the same thing too, since it also wants to increase the price of rental.

This Monday, Redbox will be hiking up the price for standard DVDs up to 20 percent. That’s $1.20 per day for the DVD. Blu-rays and video games will remain the same with $1.50 and $2.00 respectively.

I have still yet to use a Redbox, but then again, there’s a reason why I subscribe to Netflix. Okay fine, it’s because I’m a lazy bum!
