Digiboo Comes to Houston1 Aug, 2013 By: Chris Tribbey
Santa Monica, Calif.-based Digiboo —which offers kiosk-based digital movie rentals and purchases on portable USB flash drives for airline travelers — has installed 10 new kiosks at Houston’s William P. Hobby and George Bush Intercontinental airports.
The kiosks — four at Hobby, six at Bush — offer more than 800 movies and 300 TV episodes for rent or purchase. Titles can be rented for $3.99 each or can be purchased for $14.99. Rentals can be viewed up to 30 days after purchase.
“We’re delighted to announce the Digiboo offering at Hobby Airport, Houston’s oldest airport, and Bush Intercontinental Airport, the city’s largest airport,” said Karen W. Ellis, director of customer service for Houston Airport System. “Our goal is to provide an enjoyable experience to everyone that visits our airports, including a variety of entertainment options.”
Digiboo’s offerings include recently released titles, including 42, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Jack the Giant Slayer, The Call, “Revolution,” “Big Bang Theory,” “Weeds,” Breaking Bad” and “Mad Men.” The content can be played on Apple or Android devices, and Windows-enabled PCs.
“Digiboo’s mission is to deliver an easier way for entertainment-lovers to get the content they crave, when they want it,” said Digiboo CEO Richard Cohen. “We think Houston’s large population of early-adopters, movie enthusiasts and business travelers will enjoy exploring Digiboo’s extensive catalog.”
Digiboo kiosks are also located at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, Seattle-Tacoma International, Portland International Airport, Boise Airport and within select Gateway Newstands.
