The Netflix-like (NFLX) online video service Verizon (VZ) is reportedly working on will be launched in May in partnership with Coinstar's (CSTR) Redbox, claims TechCrunch. Internally called Project Zoetrope, the service will feature both streaming and downloading, and will support a variety of devices. Unlike Netflix, subscription pricing will be based on "credits" rather than all-you-can-eat usage.

    Since we do not get Verizon in our area it will not effect us. We use Netflix and have been very satisfied. I pay $11.99 +tax for 4 movies a week on DVD and happy with that and can change to streaming at any time.

    It's a pattern. He comes out with these partnerships all the time. First Apple then Amazon, Walmart, Etc., Etc, Then he is first out with his note to investors. He's been leaking incorrect information since CSTR mentioned streaming 2+ years ago. I can't understand how he ever gets press anymore. He always leaks it to the same website (Techchunch) then he follows it up with an article in Home Media Magazine. He did the same type thing when CSTR was fighting with the studios to. Look back and Techcrunch broke the rumored other partnerships. He has been and is the "unidentified source" 9-10 times whenever it concerns Redbox. Google search him and Redbox/Coinstar
