You'll be able to download movies to a flash drive and watch them on your portable device.
Redbox and Blockbuster Express kiosks have been doing incredibly well. You can find them, Redbox kiosks anyway, in just about any city by visiting the biggest store. If there's a Meijer or a Walmart nearby, there's probably a Redbox nearby.
The one place they haven't managed to infiltrate yet is airports. One of the most obvious reasons why is that most people don't carry DVD players on the plane. Plenty carry netbooks, laptops, and portable devices that are capable of playing a digital file.
A company called Digiboo is planning to install 7,000 digital movie kiosks in airports around the country. Each would offer over 1,000 movies and allow users to download movies to a USB 3.0 flash drive. Each download, says the company, would take around 30 seconds.
