Part 1: Play RedBox DVD on DVD Player
The first solution to help you play Redbox DVD on smart TV is without to make use of DVD player tools. You could play back rent Redbox DVD discs with standard DVD player connected to your TV. Have a check on the Redbox rental discs before putting it to DVD driver or playing it with DVD player.
The only thing you need is actually a DVD player that could help you play back all Redbox DVD disc rentals. Then, you could follow the below steps to learn how to play Redbox DVD discs on TV through DVD players:
- Unplug your TV and DVD player.
- Set the DVD player on a shelf near the TV. Make sure the DVD cables will reach the TV from the shelf you choose. Because the player has a motor inside, it creates heat. Placing the DVD on top of or underneath other devices may cause overheating.
- Connect your DVD player with the included cables. Use the best choice for your type of TV. If you have an HDMI connector, that will give you the best picture and sound. Depending on your setup, you may need to use a composite cable instead, which is the one with the red, white, and yellow plugs on each end.
- Whichever cable you use, plug one end into the DVD player, and the other into the corresponding port in the TV. If you are using the composite cable, plug the other end of the cord into the terminals on the DVD player marked Line Out. Be sure to insert the plugs into the terminals with corresponding colors. The red and white plugs are for sound, the yellow is for video.
- Plug the DVD player's power cord into an electrical outlet in the wall. Always plug in the power cord after you have connected all the other plugs. Connecting the electricity first may set the TV channels incorrectly. Plug in the TV and turn it on also.
- Once you have turned everything on and set the TV channel to view the DVD player output, refer to the user manual to change the language display on the DVD home screen, if necessary.
- If your DVD player has a clock, check that the clock is set correctly. If the clock doesn't set itself, refer to the user manual to manually change the time.
- Insert a DVD into the player to see if your connection was successful. Remember that DVDs often come with menus, so most of them will not play automatically. You must use the remote control to select the desired options

FAQ About RedBox DVD Rentals
Here we have collected some frequently asked questions about RedBox DVD Rentals to help you better know RedBox DVD Rentals:
- 1. How does it work when you rent an item from a Redbox Kiosk?
- Each item you rent from a Redbox kiosk has a minimum rental period of one day. Then, for each additional day you do not return an item by 9:00 p.m. local time, your rental continues and you will be charged an additional daily rental charge, plus applicable tax (except for jurisdictions that do not require sales tax to be charged or collected), for each item. For some items, the daily rental charge for the minimum rental period (one day) may be different than it is for each additional day the item is not returned. Each item you rent from Redbox also has a maximum rental period as disclosed at the kiosk screen before you pay. If you keep an item through the maximum rental period, that item is yours to keep and Redbox will charge you the maximum charge for that item. The maximum charge varies depending on the type of item you are renting and the daily rental charge(s) for the item.
Redbox kiosk screens will display the daily rental charges and maximum rental periods for your rentals. The number of items you may rent at a given time is subject to Redbox’s discretion. If you reserve an item online, via a mobile device, or through another Redbox platform, your rental begins to run at that point. Each time you rent from Redbox, it is considered a single transaction regardless of how long your rental lasts or how many items you rent.
- 2. When are you charged for rentals from a Kiosk?
- At the time of rental or reservation, Redbox will seek an authorization from your payment card company. The amount of the authorization sought will depend on the item(s) you are attempting to rent or reserve and may also vary depending on the nature of the payment card you have provided. You authorize Redbox to process charges on your payment card for all daily rental charges, plus tax (except for jurisdictions that do not require sales tax to be charged or collected), incurred based on the length of your rental. Note that if you purchase an item at the same time you rent an item, you will be charged for your purchase and rental at the time you return your rental (or, if you do not return your rented item, at the end of the maximum rental period for the rented item). If your payment card is declined, we have the right to collect all past due charges from you and we reserve the right to charge you interest for overdue charges at the then-highest current rate allowed by law.
