MOD launches video download kiosks The digital movie kiosk company MOD Systems has launched their first kiosks, featuring films from Warner Bros., Paramount Pictures and Anchor Bay.
CEO Anthony Bay says the kiosks are part of a pilot test and will be completely in retail stores by November 15th.

A "digital movie kiosk" means users can search for movies via a touchscreen then download them to SD cards that can be played back on TVs, computers, phones and other devices with SD card support.

A couple of blockbuster films, such as Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and Star Trek will be available in time for the kiosks and on the same day they become available on iTunes.

MOD is in talks with more studios to bring the content to the kiosks and expects deals before the end of the year.

I tried checking the site to see what format the films would be in, but no luck, there will be DRM however.

I'm assuming the DRM will delete the video after so many days?

Either that, or if you paid to keep the download, make sure it isn't distributed everywhere by forcing you to authorize to X amount of devices would be my guess.

I don't even know anyone who walks around with an SD card, and few who use them. I can also foresee the SD slots on the kiosks being jammed with coins xD
