Oskar transforms your handset into a TV screen

25. June 2003

As of today, Oskar’s customers can take advantage of a new service called VideoZone which transforms their mobile phones into pocket TVs. The service allows customers to view entertaining videos and up-to-date news in a format specially adjusted for the displays of commercially available handsets – at any time and any place. VideoZone, which is launched in co-operation with U-TURN, offers 11 thematic channels: Movie Trailers, Czech TV News, Weather, Jokes, Comics, Mobile Tabloid, Extreme sports, Good Night Stories, Slapsticks, Erotic Weather Forecast and Erotic Series. The average time of a video is 1 to 5 minutes. However, some of the videos are up to 10 minutes long (Good Night Stories).

VideoZone, which is launched in co-operation with U-TURN, offers 11 thematic channels: Movie Trailers, Czech TV News, Weather, Jokes, Comics, Mobile Tabloid, Extreme sports, Good Night Stories, Slapsticks, Erotic Weather Forecast and Erotic Series. The average time of a video is 1 to 5 minutes. However, some of the videos are up to 10 minutes long (Good Night Stories). Every channel will be updated on a continuous basis to bring fresh content.

The price for each video ranges from 0 Kc for attractive movie trailers to 29.90 Kc (including VAT) for erotic content. In addition, the customer will be charged for data transmission over GPRS (average transmission volume is 180 KB per minute). Full price list can be found at www.oskar.cz.

Every customer who is interested in viewing videos on his/her phone first activates GPRS>Always On and Oskar’s WAP services. Both services can be conveniently activated over Voice, SMS or Internet Self-Care. Customers are recommended to activate GPRS Standard or GPRS Business tariffs as these two tariffs offer the lowest price for data transmission. As a next step, the customer needs to download the VideoZone application from the WAP address wap.videozona.cz. The application will guide the customer through the handset set-up procedure and will complete the installation.

Oskar’s videos are supported by Nokia 7650 and Nokia 3650 handsets. The number of supported handset models is expected to grow over time.
