Coinstar (CSTR) and Verizon's (VZ) Redbox Instant streaming service will commercially launch by the end of Q1, promises JV chief Shawn Strickland. Verizon had once predicted a Q4 2012 launch. The service currently has 4,500 movies in its library that can be viewed with a basic subscription, and a total of 7,500 after counting "transactional" titles. Netflix (NFLX) was estimated to have 35K titles in April, but that includes a lot of TV shows. Amazon recently stated it had 33K titles.
