uVuMobile, Inc. announced that it is collaborating with and building a number of mobile applications for Sonic Solutions.
According to the statement, the partnership will allow consumers with internet-enabled mobile phones to browse, purchase, and watch premium entertainment from Roxio CinemaNow powered services on a wide array of portable platforms. Users can purchase a full-length movie directly on their mobile phone, view it immediately, and then access the same content from other connected devices including PCs, HDTVs, and Blu-ray Disc (BD) players.
“Sonic is on the leading edge of digital content distribution and we are excited to be working with them to provide consumers an easy and efficient way to enjoy their favorite entertainment,” said Richard Seifert, President and CEO, uVuMobile. “Our integrated mobile solutions combined with premium video services from Roxio CinemaNow, will enable Sonic’s partners to reach millions of entertainment enthusiasts on the go.”
The Roxio CinemaNow entertainment platform serves a broad range of premium content, including new movies and next-day TV programs, to a growing, multi-manufacturer ecosystem of home and mobile electronics including PCs, connected TVs, set-top DVRs, Blu-ray Disc players, smartphones, and mobile media devices. The platform enables retailers and consumer electronics companies to participate in the entertainment supply chain, add value to product offerings, and form ongoing relationships with customers. As well as being available on a range of consumer electronics, Roxio CinemaNow powers digital entertainment delivery for Best Buy and Blockbuster.
“Over the past year, uVuMobile has been a tremendous resource as we continue to rollout a number of mobile programs for our Roxio CinemaNow retail partners,” said Mark Ely, executive vice president, Strategy, Sonic Solutions. “We look forward to continuing to work with uVuMobile and turning on more small-screens to premium entertainment services powered by Roxio CinemaNow.”
