The service is currently being tested in private beta, and Verizon and Redbox have kept mum on some key details. However, after a bit of digging, I discovered that the service’s closed test is accompanied by an exhaustive help section that is publicly available on the web.

A company spokesperson wasn’t able to comment on any specifics mentioned in our report.
