mDialog Brings BITE TV and AUX to the iPhoneGlassBOX Television and mDialog Partner to Deliver and Monetize Exclusive Video Content on the iPhone (January 07, 2009)
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/07/09 -- Macworld Conference and Expo
mDialog today announced a partnership with GlassBOX Television Inc. to bring to the iPhone video content from GlassBOX Televisions' two channels, BITE TV and AUX. As part of the partnership, GlassBOX Television will also deliver ad content to the iPhone using the mDialog Ad Delivery platform (mAD(TM)).
BITE TV's content is a blend of acquired and in-house production video that's three to 10 minutes per episode. AUX is GlassBOX's newest station and it focuses on emerging music from new and established artists in the indie rock, hip hop and pop genres. BITE TV and AUX are both interactive, cross-platform channels that will use mDialog to extend their mobile offerings to the iPhone.
GlassBOX Television launched its flagship channel, BITE TV, three years ago to embrace the concept of audience involvement. This partnership allows them to take advantage of mDialog's social video features, including contests and surveys, to further engage their audience and to tap them for direct feedback.
mAD offers the only turnkey solution for the iPhone that delivers geotargeted pre or post-roll ads or coupons. GlassBOX Television will work with mDialog to co-develop creative and relevant advertising opportunities for partner Omnicom Media Group's clients to reach the wired, 18-35 year-old consumer.
BITE TV and AUX will be available on the iPhone by visiting www.mdialog.com then accessing the BITE TV and AUX channels.
mDialog offers a full set of iPhone capabilities, including a native iPhone application, which enables socialization and monetization of video on the iPhone. mDialog's technology enhances the experience for content producers, advertisers and viewers, making video on the iPhone truly interactive. Content producers and advertisers can get more information about customized partnerships with mDialog by emailing [email protected].
