And Blu-rays are coming cheaper than expected. Speculation has put Blu-ray rental fees at as low as $2 a night and as high as $3, but as it turns out, we can expect a $1.50 fee. That's only 50 cents more than DVD rentals, and it's a welcome surprise.
As far as when we'll start seeing Blu-rays in kiosks, the answer is a bit less clear. Lowe says the transition will happen in the next few months, but Redbox execs have been giving us the "next few months" answer for a while now.
