Redbox is considering starting a very low cost Internet video streaming service for under $5 based on the results of a recent survey

Redbox recently sent out a survey asking customers to rate their interest in a streaming service that would only cost $3.95.  For under $4, you would have access to unlimited streaming as well as four free movie rentals at the kiosk machines.

If you already rent at least four movies at $1.00, you would basically get access to the streaming service for free.  Not a bad deal at all!

However, even though Netflix's prices are higher (cheapest Netflix package starts out at $9), there is a huge range of devices that most people already own that are "Netflix Streaming" compliant, such as some Blu-ray players.
