Some do, some don't. So far for me it has been a hard and fast rule that if the Redbox is in a convenient spot for me, it does not, and vice versa.

Fox thinks those of us who rent from Redbox will run out and buy these silly titles otherwise.
Wrong!
There are plenty of titles I will try for a $.99 rental - and then decide if they are worth purchasing on blu-ray after viewing.
But blind blu-ray buys at $25 to $30 each of titles I haven't already decided I want is not going to happen. Ever!
I vote for Redbox - keep up the fight!

Perhaps this may direct some companies into doing pristine new transfers. Yipee!
