Millions of additional subscribers gain access to Cellufun’s award-winning mobile games community through mobile data managed service provider
ClearSky Mobile Media, Inc., a leading provider of managed services and content to wireless carriers, and Cellufun, the community-driven mobile gaming portal and “the world�s mobile playground,” today announced the availability of Cellufun’s games community to ClearSky’s existing wireless carrier partners. This relationship marks the first time Cellufun has worked with a managed service provider to deliver its games to a large network of more than two million customers in North America.
Cellufun, home to favorites such as Space Wars and Call of the Pharaoh, is already attracting five million unique users a month to its virtual world, mainly from off-deck and individual carrier subscriber growth. Now, by partnering with ClearSky, Cellufun games will receive prominent placement on subscriber handsets through a multitude of regional carrier networks, making it much easier for wireless customers to discover the Cellufun community.
“Developing relationships with mobile data solution providers and their regional carrier partners is directly in line with our strategy to extend the reach of our mobile social games community,” said Arthur Goikhman, CEO and co-founder of Cellufun. “ClearSky gives us an opportunity to do just that, and make our games available to millions of additional customers who want easy access to our content without venturing off deck.”
“ClearSky continually strives to deploy new products and services that will increase the data revenue for our large and growing list of carrier clients,” said Tony Tagliareni , executive vice president of sales at ClearSky. “Cellufun’s award-winning catalog of ad-supported games and their proven ability to build a community and encourage social interaction generates incremental traffic on our clients’ data networks while providing unique entertainment for our carrier’s subscribers. The result is a powerful synergy that allows us to deliver even greater value to our carrier partners and their subscribers.”
