Digiboo Expands Access with New Android Support and Introduces New TV Content Now More People than Ever Before Can Download Movies and TV Programs Directly to a Laptop, Tablet, Phone or PC
LOS ANGELES, Oct. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Digiboo (www.digiboo.com), today announced that its digital retail entertainment download service is available for Android devices and its content has expanded to include a variety of television series. Now, it is even easier and more convenient for consumers to download movies and TV shows wirelessly or to a USB and play them back on their Windows or Android laptops, tablets, phones or PCs.
Also, in addition to the more than 800 new releases and popular catalog movie titles, people can enjoy episodes from 11 television series, including "Boss," "Mad Men," "Nurse Jackie" and "The Big Bang Theory." TV programs from Digiboo are competitively priced and can be purchased for $1.99 each.
"Our goal has always been to make the best quality entertainment accessible to the most consumers," said Richard Cohen, CEO, Digiboo. "By making Digiboo available on Android devices, we have doubled the number of potential users who can enjoy our service."
Digiboo's entertainment is available through its interactive touchscreen kiosks which can be found largely through three airports, Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP), Seattle-Tacoma International (SEA) and Portland International Airport (PDX). Anyone, from business travelers waiting for flights to families on long trips, can enjoy their favorite films and TV shows quickly and easily. And since the Digiboo service is digital-only, with no physical discs, titles are always in stock and regularly refreshed and there is never anything to return.
"We are committed to giving our customers exactly what they want," said Blake Thomas, CMO, Digiboo. "With the addition of Android devices and TV content, we are continuing to listen and respond to consumers' desire for the fastest and most convenient entertainment service available."
Recently, Digiboo removed another barrier to customer satisfaction by adding a wireless download feature so it is no longer necessary to remember to bring a USB to the Digiboo kiosks. Also, people who worry about data caps when downloading movies and TV shows should not be concerned. Since Digiboo has its own dedicated network, there is no extra cost to download and the service does not eat into the consumer's data plan.
Digiboo has partnered with several television studios, including Lionsgate, Sony and Warner Bros. to provide the highest quality service to travelers.
Digiboo is a convenient option for people to watch the movies and TV shows they love, whenever and wherever they want. It is a first-of-its-kind digital retail download service that has more than 800 new release and popular movie titles and 11 television series available through its interactive touchscreen kiosks.
Digiboo kiosks are currently available exclusively through airports in the United States, an ideal distribution channel to offer more choices for people to buy or rent the entertainment they love while traveling. These movies and TV shows can be downloaded in as little as 30 seconds to USB, or just minutes directly to your device via Wi-Fi and played back on any Windows-enabled or Android PC, laptop, tablet or phone. Digiboo delivers a fast and convenient way for people to watch movies and TV.
Digiboo was founded in 2008 by film industry veterans Richard Cohen, former MGM Home Entertainment and Consumer Products president, Jeff Karbowiak, EVP of MGM's Home Entertainment Group, David Beddow, CTO at Movielink, and Blake Thomas, GM of MGM Home Entertainment.
