Digiboo USB movie rental kiosks - Morgan Freeman's new business venture - finally made debut at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, Portland International Airport and Seattle-Tacoma International Airport with the number expanding to 7000 in the next 3 years. What makes these kiosks rather unique is the obvious fact that they can never run of movies even if there's a sudden surge in usage whereas Red Boxes that rent out Blu-ray are inherently limited by their physical storage.
According to Digiboo, a 2-hour standard def movie weighs at about 1.8GB and it takes 2 to 5 minutes to download This will entirely depend on your flash drive. If it's a speedy USB 3.0 version, then transfer time will be cut to 20 seconds per film. High-def movies are likely planned if the venture sees immediate success. Though they will probably priced higher than $3.99 standard def. rental. These movies will be protected by DRM so playback devices (Windows only) need to be authorized online first. Just make sure you do it before getting on the plane.
