Coinstar (CSTR) and Verizon's (VZ) Redbox Instant streaming JV will launch somewhere between mid-November and mid-December, Verizon exec Eric Bruno tells Bloomberg. Bruno adds the service will offer monthly rentals and purchases in addition to subscriptions, and (like Netflix) will support non-PC devices. Verizon and Coinstar have suggested in the past their service would differentiate itself from Netflix (NFLX), mocked as "rerun TV" by some, through a greater focus on movies.
