You know those times when you are thirty minutes from boarding a long flight and you realize that you forgot to download some movies?

Digiboo is here to solve that.

The location-based retail entertainment download service is today debuting Digiboo Zones, which will leverage WiFi in public areas to allow travelers to download top movie and TV content to their mobile and tablet devices in less than a minute.

The zones will initially be available in 100 high traffic locations (including airports) in the U.S. and Canada starting today, and the company has plans to expand to 2,000 locations within the next year.

“Digiboo is a breakthrough service that allows mobile customers to download a Digiboo movie to their mobile device with the fastest mobile movie download speed on earth,” said Richard Cohen, CEO of Digiboo. “Digiboo doesn’t require planning ahead or remembering to download before you leave your home. Our customers can quickly and conveniently pick up a movie or two for their trip without any hassle or disappointment, and they won’t need to be connected to the internet to watch. This allows them the freedom to enjoy their movie anytime and anywhere.”

The app-based Digiboo Zone will manifest itself as either a kiosk or a hidden server. What helps quicken the pace of the download – compared to other services, such as the iTunes store – is that the files run up to 1GB in size and are optimized for mobile viewing. Downloads are available for 30 days before starting, and once started, they are available for 48 hours.
