Campaign Overview and Goals
PlayPhone Hits TV - a new broadcast concept in the UK.
PlayPhone is to launch a television channel in a groundbreaking joint venture with Top Up TV, the company that provides Pay TV services on Digital Terrestrial Television.  It is the first time a mobile entertainment brand has launched its own branded television channel.  PlayPhone Hits showcases the rich mobile content offered by PlayPhone’s Splash Mobile service - the programming involves: 
  • 1hr of pre-compiled music video footage updated weekly
  • Packaged with great content, competitions, news, gossip and call to actions
  • New idea, innovative and unique
  • Based on a subscription concept
The aim is to extend the PlayPhone brand beyond the world of mobile to broadcast, adding to the WAP, web and SMS media through which it is presently available.  Viewers will be encouraged to interact with the programming by texting or visiting the Splash website
