Video Broadcast Services and Self-Service Kiosks

DirecTV is opening a kiosk in Denver International Airport for pushing its services. It appears to be that the typical mall kiosk will be the outlet not an electronic self-service kiosk. There has been talk about using these services in pay-for-use unattended terminals where captive audience can spend some time (and money).

DirecTV Inc. has signed a multi-year agreement with the Denver International Airport to be the sole provider of programming in select areas of the airport, the company said Thursday.

Terms of the agreement, which will make DirecTV programming available to travelers waiting for their flights, were not disclosed.

The company will hold a launch event today to celebrate the opening of its first airport retail kiosk in Concourse B of the Denver International Airport. The kiosk will showcase DirecTV's high definition and DVR services, and passengers will be able to sign up for residential and/or commercial business services from DirecTV at the kiosk.

Denver International Airport is ranked the tenth busiest airport in the world and served more than 43.4 million passengers in 2005.

El Segundo-based DirecTV (NYSE: DTV) is a satellite television service provider with more than 15.6 million customers.
