Digital entertainment company, Digiboo, today announced that it would expand support of its service to Android devices. The company has kiosks, similar to the ones that Redbox employs, where people can go up and purchase digital video files for use on their PCs. Now that the service supports Android, you'll be able to purchase TV shows or movies and download them straight to your tablet or phone.

A Digiboo kiosk

If you've never heard about Digiboo before now, I don't blame you: The company currently only has kiosks in three airports (Minneapolis-St. Paul International airport, Seattle-Tacoma International airport, and Portland International airport), though it hopes to put kiosks in places like shopping malls or grocery stores in the near future. Movies from nearly all of the major studios are available the same day as their DVD release, and the pricing is similar to what you see on services like iTunes. The only big downside is that you need access to a Digiboo kiosk to purchase content, which means that only a small portion of the U.S. will be able to take advantage of the service.

Digiboo commented in saying that it's working on iOS support next, though I would hope that the company gets a few thousand more kiosks around the country before then so more people could try it out.
