How about USB Downloads instead of DVDs in Those Movie Rental

How about USB Downloads instead of DVDs in Those Movie Rental
Kiosks?

DRM inventor Intertrust, owned by Sony and Philips, has
invested in India-based Kiora, which provides kiosk-based
video rentals in low bandwidth regions, according to
Faultline. Consumers can fill conventional USB sticks with
premium movies which are then played back at home on a custom-
made set top box, which sells for $20. Intertrust uses its
Marlin DRM for the content protection. Kiora has content
licensed from Bollywood studios. In addition to India, it has
placed kiosks in California’s Silicon Valley, but so far has
no Hollywood content, so this is for the many ex-pat Indians
that are working in Silicon Valley and their families. Wonder
when Coinstar will add USBs to its Redbox kiosks?
