La Copa de los Sueños
Orlando, FL (PRWEB) July 9, 2008
Red Planet Media, Inc. announced today the launch of two new Spanish-language channels, Cine Mexicano and Noti Mobile, on its video-on-demand service for mobile phones, JumpInMobile.TV. JumpInMobile.TV is the wireless industry's newest and most dynamic mobile video service enabling long-form, on-demand video content on an estimated 30 million AT&T Wireless and Sprint phones including models from Motorola, Nokia, Samsung and the Apple iPhone. Sprint and AT&T Wireless subscribers can try the service by texting either "go cinemexicano" or "go notimobile" to the number "22646" or by pointing their cell phone browsers to http://jumpinmobile.tv/cinemexicano or http://jumpinmobile.tv/notimobile
OlympuSAT, a leading distributor of satellite delivered television channels, has taken their popular Spanish-language channel Cine Mexicano and brought it to mobile phones as part of the JumpInMobile.TV channel lineup. The new mobile version of Cine Mexicano is a subscription service that allows unlimited access to three full-length motion pictures each month. Cine Mexicano movies are edited into easy to manage chapters for use on mobile phones. The first three movies at the launch of the service are "La Copa de los Sueños," starring Roberto Lopez and Irma Merino, "Romeo y Lorenza," starring Lourdes Munguia and Paco Ibañez, and "Tras las Sombras." New movie titles from OlympuSAT's vast catalog will be rotated in on a monthly basis, providing subscribers the most complete Spanish-language movie library ever offered on cell phones.
"Cine Mexicano is top rated and a viewer favorite both as a linear network and on demand," stated Colleen Glynn, Senior Vice President, OlympuSAT. "We are pleased to make available select contemporary originals and leading movie content for customers to conveniently access on their cell phones."
Noti Mobile is a completely new concept for Spanish-language daily news delivered through on-demand mobile video. Produced by Globalmedia, the leading provider of 24-hour television news from Latin America for the Spanish-speaking world, Noti Mobile brings viewers daily updates on breaking regional news, top sporting events and the latest in entertainment news in three separate segments each day - News, Sports and Entertainment. Each of the three daily segments runs four to five minutes and is delivered by Globalmedia's top news anchors. Unlike other news sources, which tend to read U.S. news in Spanish, Noti Mobile covers the top stories throughout all the Americas from its own news centers in Miami and Colombia.
"We expect NotiMobile will be a very successful product and service," stated Juan Gonzalo Angel, president of Globalmedia. "There is an exponential growth of multimedia mobile devices that can provide users access to the latest news and events in the world. Noti Mobile is custom made for Spanish-speaking customers of the main wireless mobile companies throughout United States. The news is delivered in a format designed for busy people, who need to get the most important information in the shortest amount of time."
With today's announcement and the recent launch of a vast catalog of on-demand anime on the FUNimation Channel, JumpInMobile.TV is rapidly expanding the number of available channels as well as growing the list of supported handsets and carriers. With an estimated 30 million handsets already supported, JumpInMobile.TV's superior mobile phone adaptation and playback capabilities are powered by QuickPlay Media, the industry leader in mobile TV and video solutions. All the content making up a channel is divided into easily manageable chapters and optimized for each type of phone. Subscribers to a channel have unlimited access to all the chapters in the channel and the cost of a monthly subscription is conveniently added to the subscriber's phone bill or to a credit card.
"JumpInMobile.TV is designed to bring the best video content to important market segments and the launch of our two exciting Spanish-language channels hits one of the most deserving yet underserved U.S. market segments -- Hispanics," said Dean Fresonke, President of Red Planet Media. "As a whole, Latinos use mobile video more than any other demographic and now with both daily news and feature films, we've created an entirely new way for the Latino community to educate and entertain themselves."
