Redbox will stop selling Disney movie codes as part of settlement

  Redbox will stop selling Disney movie codes as part of settlement Disney's lawsuit against Redbox is over, and it's not great news for Redbox. The two sides have agreed to a settlement that will have Redbox stop the sale of movie download codes from Disney disc packs. Attorneys for Disney had accused Redbox of violating copyright by offering the codes separately from the discs that went into rental kiosks. Redbox had accused Disney of anti-competitive behavior and succeeded in thwarting a preliminary injunction that would have blocked sales, but its defense fell apart after Disney reworked the disc packs' terms to make code access contingent on how you bought the movies rather than physical ownership.

With so many different streaming services coming out of the woodwork it's getting harder to keep up with everything — as well as more expensive. With only so much time and money to go around, you might need to make a choice as to which offers the best bang for the buck .

Disney+ Isn't Much Bang for Your Buck Right Now. Disney+ will also roll out multiple exclusive shows, but you can wait to learn if they’re so good that they justify the subscription. That’s the HBO model, where there are fewer titles, but those include one or two essential shows that all your friends

With so many different streaming services coming out of the woodwork it's getting harder to keep up with everything — as well as more expensive. That's not going to get any better now that Disney's launched its own offering, with shows from popular franchises like Star Wars and Marvel to entice you to sign up. With only so much time and money to go around, you might need to make a choice as to which offers the best bang for the buck. While we can't tell you which shows you'll like, we can certainly help you out with some of the more technical details, so check out the chart below to see how Disney+ will stack up against established players like Netflix.

Bang & Olufsen's pricey H8i headphones are currently $250 at Best Buy

  Bang & Olufsen's pricey H8i headphones are currently $250 at Best Buy We liked Bang & Olufsen's H8i headphones between their premium construction, clear audio and comfort, but the $399 price was tough to swallow when the competition offered solid sound for less. Cost won't be an obstacle right now, though. Best Buy has dropped the price of the H8i to $250 as part of a clearance sale, making a pair far easier to justify if you're determined to put that upscale audio on your ears. The H8i shares some things inThe H8i shares some things in common with the higher-end H9i (which wasn't on sale as we wrote this), but there are some key differences beyond cosmetics. It's an on-ear design instead of over-ear, it relies on physical buttons rather than touch and it lacks a removable battery.

Disney+ , the newest and cheapest major streaming service, gives you less bang for your buck than Netflix, Stan and Prime Video. Look at the best titles available from Disney+ , listed on Reelgood. If you want to see some of those now, then go ahead and buy a month.

Other cities on the Best Bang For Your Buck list were held aloft by a college or university economy. Like Tucson, which boasts a ,000 median annual salary for its residents and stands 2% under the average U.S. cost of living. Wausau, Wisconsin, also made the list
