You’re at the airport, and realize you forgot to download a movie for the flight to your iPad. You don’t want to settle for the in-flight entertainment offered by the airline and the airport’s Wi-Fi is so congested you can’t get into iTunes to download a movie. For a problem like this, a Digiboo Zone has your back. All you need is the free Digiboo Player app and your iOS device.
A hit movie in 60 seconds or less
Rolling out today, July 9, in 100 high traffic locations across the United States and Canada, including airports, Digiboo Zones promise the ability to download a movie in less than a minute. Once fully downloaded, the film may be watched offline.
Other locations launching today include universities like Baldwin Wallace University and Oregon State University, Pilot Flying J locations in the southern U.S., and even a Pizza Hut in Madison, Wisconsin. Over the next 12 months, Digiboo plans to expand to more than 2,000 locations.
Just 60 seconds? Really?
A Digiboo Zone is created using Wi-FI technology anchored to a touch screen kiosk or hidden server. Using the free Digiboo Player app, customers can shop for a movie from a large selection of new releases and classics. The actual download time for the entire movie is one to three minutes, but you can usually start watching the film in 60 seconds or less.
Free new releases
New releases are usually $4.99, while classics are $3.99. Once downloaded, you have 30 days to start watching the download, and it’s viewable for 48 hours after you begin the film. For a limited time, though, Digiboo Zones offers new release movie rentals for free.
Digiboo looks like an awesome way to pick up a movie on the go, since it uses its own Wi-Fi to download to your device and not some congested public hot spot. I hate having to wait hours for movies to download, and a Digiboo Zone looks to save me time to actually enjoy the movie — and not spend my time waiting for it to download
The Digiboo Player app is designed for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, and requires iOS 7 or later. The app is free to download on the App Store, but you have to pay to rent movies at the Digiboo Zone kiosks.
