Why does redbox selection suck?

It's obvious the redbox kiosks are convenient. Also a given, the fact they can't hold many movies. The thing that really perplexes me is, why have such a great idea then limit it's quality by shoving it full of B movie garbage. There are a few blockbuster hits, only a few. It just burns me up. Do they not have a contract with some of the larger film makers?

I know some red box locations where they have extra containers to double or triple capacity. Around here there are good movies, but the good ones tend to be a year or two old if not older. It's only one dollar, so I guess it is hard to complain. Usually when it is red box, it is also on showtime, hbo, cinemax, etc.

It's all about getting the rights for the movies. B movie crap, pretty easy because they are looking for any distibution channel available. Blockbusters hits and big studio movies, not so much. For physical media, I believe they have to obtain the right to rent and then purchase large lots of the movies at a discounted price for rental. Redbox being relatively new, probably doesn't get first crack at a lot of these due to other companies wanting them exclusively. Netflix has been on the decline recently (as far as the streaming service goes) because of losing the rights of several different studios and subscription cable channels.
