ITN Multimedia launches new site on i-mode service from O2

ITN Multimedia, one of the UK’s leading independent content providers for mobile and broadband platforms, has announced the launch of its new site on the i-mode service exclusively from O2.
The new i-mode site from ITN will feature the latest home, world, business and entertainment news – plus breaking news bulletins - in both text and video form. ITN Multimedia has built the web architecture, packaged and produced all the content specifically for this new site as i-mode is the only mobile phone service to feature made-for-mobile web pages that can be viewed perfectly from its handset.
The ITN site will be priced competitively at £1.50 per month with unlimited text and video downloads available to i-mode users.
Nicholas Wheeler, Managing Director of ITN Multimedia, said: "We have been a long term news partner with O2 and we are very excited to expand the services we provide for them. Now, as well as providing 2.5G and 3G news bulletins, we are supplying them with a new made-for-mobile ITN site. We believe that the i-mode service is the future for internet on the move."
Grahame Riddell, Head of Content Marketing, O2 said: “We are pleased to be working with ITN to offer its service to our customers. ITN has managed to capture the benefits of i-mode and joined the i-mode ecosystem to offer its consumers a compelling mobile experience."
ITN Multimedia recently announced it has also signed a deal with MSN to supply news and a variety of entertainment content for its new video channel, 'MSN Video', and is partnering with Blinkx in the launch of its full-service IPTV platform blinkx.tv.
