Tesco, Applegreen, Centra trial futuristic DVD rental vending kiosk

In the coming weeks Irish shoppers will be able to benefit from a robotically operated DVD rental vending concept housed in Tesco, Applegreen and Centra stores across the Emerald Isle which if successful will be rolled out across their Irish stores.
June 3, 2008 - PRLog -- The Movie Booth is a newly created brand which supplies DVD rental kiosks to retail stores throughout Ireland and enables users to rent movies on a pay-as-you-go basis from a fully automated touch-screen machine, offering a modern alternative to the traditional high street DVD rental store.

The futuristic concept is the brainchild of award winning young entrepreneur Carlos Marco Rider, who noticed the gap in the DVD rental market and came up with a solution that could offer a convenient and cost-effective way for people to rent their favourite new release movies from their local shop.

Mr Rider commented, “The DVD rental market has faced big changes in recent years, and I felt that high street DVD rental services didn’t offer value to their customers.  By eliminating space and staffing costs, these kiosks can offer the most competitive DVD rental prices in Ireland.  To many people renting a DVD from a machine can be intimidating but these kiosks are designed to be completely user-friendly”.

He added, “Customers use a touch-screen system to select and rent their movies, and it takes only three steps to rent a film.  These kiosks have been designed with the end-user in mind and have several features which make renting a DVD easier than ever before.  The partnerships we are developing with retailers should ensure we achieve substantial coverage across Ireland by the end of 2008, and you can also visit http://www.themoviebooth.com/dvdvendingkiosk.php to see the opportunities we have available”.

In an ever changing market, retail outlets should soon feature automated DVD kiosks to be able to benefit from the fall from grace of the traditional DVD rental store.  The trial with three of Ireland’s most prominent retailers could lead to a deployment of DVD kiosks in each of their stores nationwide.  DVD machines have experienced a massive growth in the USA with over 9000 kiosks in operation with ease-of-use, convenience and cost being provided as the main reasons for the kiosks success.  Kiosks are currently deployed in Wal-Mart’s, Wal-Greens and McDonalds to name but a few in the US.  Further details on this concept can be found at http://www.themoviebooth.com/home or by calling 0044 (0)870 1436769.
