Burbank, CA (PRWEB) October 18, 2012
Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, Valpak and Universal Orlando Resort have taken their comradeship to the next level by teaming up and inviting Friends fans to enter the “Friends Flyway Sweepstakes.”
To celebrate all 236 original broadcast episodes of Friends airing in syndication in HD and now available for the first time ever as a box set completely remastered in 1080p high-definition video and 5.1 audio, we are giving Friends fans a chance to choose five of their “friends” to go on a vacation getaway to Universal Orlando Resort. There, they will experience two amazing theme parks where guests are not just entertained – they become part of the most exhilarating entertainment ever created. Fans will also have the chance to win the complete box set of Friends on Blu-ray before it is available in stores on November 13.
Consumers can look for details in their blue envelope from Valpak, containing great, local savings and tune-in for laughs, love and lattes each weeknight from Monday, October 15, through Friday, November 12. Friends fans can then enter the contest either by watching Friends every weeknight in syndication (in select markets from 10/15-26) and identifying the “Friend of the Day” online at Valpak.com, or by visiting Valpak.com starting October 29th to answer daily trivia questions. One lucky fan will receive an all-expenses paid fun-filled getaway for six to Universal Orlando Resort, including 3 day/2 park resort tickets with a VIP escort, Blue Man Group show tickets, round-trip airfare, hotel accommodations on-site at Loews Royal Pacific Resort, and ground transportation, plus a box set of Friends on Blu-ray.
Susan Kantor, Executive Vice President Marketing Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution, added, "This promotion is a unique opportunity to work across multiple Warner Bros. divisions while promoting the Friends franchise and the five nights a week messaging. It gives our TV station partners’ local viewers a chance to win this incredible experience."
Valpak will feature Friends on the cover of the blue envelope delivered to over 39 million homes nationwide throughout October. The sweepstakes will be promoted on the Friends Facebook page which has over 17 million “likes.”
In addition to the trip for six to Universal Orlando Resort as the national prize, Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution is offering viewers in 10 markets the opportunity to also win local prize packages which include trips for two to Universal Orlando Resort, along with box sets of all 10 seasons on Blu-ray. Viewers in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Dallas, Washington D.C., Indianapolis, Hartford, Boston and Pittsburgh can win these additional trips by watching the show and entering online.
The more that viewers tune in to Friends five times a week on broadcast television (check local listings) and go to Valpak.com, the more chances they have to win the national and regional prizes.
