Consumers Gain Anytime/Anywhere Access to Ministry Video via Cell Phones
SAN DIEGO -- March 3, 2008 -- Broadcast systems integrator TV Magic today announced the launch of the Mobile Worship Network (MWN), a service that makes ministry video content available to mass-market mobile phones. The service officially commences on March 8, 2008 with Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN), the world‘s largest Christian television network. Through MWN, consumers will have instant access to video from noted prominent religious organizations, networks, and ministries, as well as an extensive library of faith-based music, sermons, and inspirational messages.
“The Mobile Worship Network is a valuable solution for any ministry that produces video content and is seeking to increase its reach to new and existing viewers,” said Stephen D. Rosen, CEO of TV Magic. “With MWN, ministries can ensure worshippers can have access to powerful video messages wherever they go, 24 hours a day.”
MWN provides consumers with a highly interactive worship experience, enabling them to build their own playlists, share audio or video with others on the network, or even respond to the ministry directly with questions about teachings. Subscribers to the network can use the service for free on more than 100 mass-market phones such as the Motorola Razr, as well as “smart phones” like the hugely popular iPhone™, Windows® mobile devices, and video-enabled Blackberry® devices.
MWN services are further enhanced by an extensive team of mobile video production experts to ensure that each video is formatted properly for mobile viewing. Members of the MWN team, who together have earned 10 Emmy® Awards for their production capabilities, work with ministry-approved videos to make short video segments that are optimized for the on-the-go mobile consumer.
MWN services also include several fundraising features for ministries, including the ability to insert click-to-call links that generate instant connections to ministry donation lines from the consumer‘s mobile phone. More information about the service and how a ministry can join the Mobile Worship Network is available at www.mobileworshipnetwork.com.
