Vancouver, Canada and Singapore (PRWEB) August 26, 2008
Contec Innovations (TSXV: BUZ) announced today that Acme Mobile, Southeast Asia's leading distributor of mobile entertainment content, has launched Amob:FC, a BUZmob™ powered English Premier League football (soccer) news and information portal to mobile audiences across the region.
The launch of Amob:FC (wap.amobfc.com) coincides with the start of the Premiership season and is initially offered by Acme Mobile's Amob portal in Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines, and Thailand. This ad-sponsored and subscription service features news stories, photos, live action and match statistics, and will be billed directly through 10 regional mobile operators.
Paul Meyers Acme Mobile's CEO says, "BUZmob's live, multi-lingual football content fills a big niche in our markets, particularly for mobile sports fans in Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand who are passionate about football and want to follow their teams while on the go. The Premiership is the world's most popular sporting league and is incredibly popular in Southeast Asia. By providing this highly sought-after content, we're giving our mobile audience the live sports news they want- wherever they may be."
In addition to launching Premier League services, Acme Mobile's sales team is marketing the full BUZmob portfolio of live news, sports, entertainment and finance content services to leading carriers, portals and media channels in the region.
