Redbox said today it has sued 20th Century Fox over the movie studio's attempts to delay its titles being offered in Redbox vending machines.

Fox ordered its wholesale distributors to stop supplying Redbox until 30 days after movie discs are released for sale starting Oct. 27.

"Essentially they gave us an ultimatum of either delaying the movies from our customers starting in October or forcing us to raise our prices."

Redbox is accusing Fox of violating antitrust laws by "reducing consumer choice in the marketplace and increasing the prices that consumers must pay."
