Starz partners with AT&T on mobile barcodes

February 10, 2011

Starz Entertainment, which has an existing partnership with AT&T’s U-Verse, just joined AT&T’s Mobile Barcode Services Charter Program. Starz Entertainment, which plans to use the technology for its action drama “Spartacus: Gods of the Arena,” a prequel to its “Spartacus: Blood and Sand” series, plans to experiment with this mobile technology to see if it’s an effective way to interest customers, via offers that highlight the network’s original programming and movies.

For “Spartacus,” Starz Entertainment’s marketing division will create specific print and outdoor advertising, which users can scan to get special offers and additional information on Starz’s other programs and movies. Starz plans to use this genre of mobile marketing to enhance its existing marketing and reach out to viewers on other platforms.
