Passengers can now download movies in less than a minute at some US airports.
Digiboo, a location-based retail entertainment download service, is launching independent Wi-Fi-enabled zones in public areas, including major airports, such as:
- Boise (BOI)
- Cleveland Hopkins International (CLE)
- George Bush International Houston (IAH)
- Indianapolis (IND)
- Knoxville (TYS)
- Minneapolis – St. Paul International (MSP)
- Portland International (PDX)
- Seattle-Tacoma International (SEA)
- William P. Hobby Houston (HOU)
Digiboo says that by the end of the summer 2015, the Digiboo Zones should be available in hundreds more airports, and 2,000+ locations in the next year.
How it works
Passengers download the Digiboo Player App (Android & PC coming soon, although these users can download movies from the Digiboo kiosks within the zones, no app needed).
From there, browse Digiboo’s TV and movie selections, purchasable for $3.99-$4.99 per download — although they’re offering free new releases for a limited time to celebrate the launch.
It should take less than one minute to download to a mobile device, and the download will be available for 30 days in the passengers library (although only 48 hours after pressing play).
Digiboo CEO, Richard Cohen:
“Digiboo has been able to take advantage of recent advances in digital compression, and Wi-Fi software and hardware technology, along with our proprietary software technology to provide its customers with the fastest mobile download. …We are constantly looking for technologies and processes to make downloads faster.”
