DVDPlay has announced that they will add Blu-ray titles to their popular kiosk style DVD rental machines that are present at many grocery stores this June. They will offer these titles at the same $1.49 rental fee as their DVD selections. The first Blu-ray titles available via the kiosks will be 'Untraceable' and 'Men In Black', both of which should be available around June 10th.
Chuck Berger, chairman of the board and chief executive officer of DVDPlay commented, "DVDPlay is thrilled to be the first in the kiosk space to offer Blu-ray discs. The focus of this strategic decision is to prepare for the long term success and sustainability of the kiosk and ultimately give consumers what they want. We have an extremely adaptable product. Recognizing the mainstream adoption of Blu-ray and offering it to our customers is something we were able to turnaround quickly."
No immediate word on how many Blu-ray titles would be made available at the kiosks.
