One of my biggest issues with movie studios is that they often block rental kiosks like Redbox from getting new films until 30 days after the movie is available. By that time, most of us have either forgotten about the flick or already seen it.

Paramount Home Entertainment and Redbox have announced a new multi year agreement that will get films in the Redbox kiosks around the country on the day they release for retail sales. That is much better than the 30 days other studios force down our throats.

I hope that other studios follow suit, if I have to wait more than a week or so to see a new film, I usually just don't watch it until it hits cable. I don’t buy movies so the studios are really only hurting themselves with the stupid 30 day limit.
