TV COMMERCE USING SMS - Order and Pay for your favourite CDs by SMS on VIVA TV
Who:Mobileway, AS Interactive and Viva
What: VIVA TV, the number one music TV channel in Germany, is the first to launch a mobile commerce service, an ‘Info & Order’ solution based on SMS. Launched at the end of 2002, every video clip featured on the VIVA Channel includes a reference code known as an INFO & ORDER KEY (IOKEY) or reference code which viewers text in by SMS. This allows fans to:
- Request more information on the artist
- Find out tour dates
- Buy tickets for the concerts
- Purchase CDs
Purchases are processed using Mobileway’s micro-payment solution, the Instant SMS Premium solution.
Based upon premium rate SMS, the Mobileway Instant SMS Premium solution provides VIVA viewers with an easy-to-use, secure purchasing channel. It also provides VIVA with a simple means to seamlessly process messages with an automated system to forward the SMS requests to the appropriate ticket or album supplier and distribution point.
Project management for the ‘Info & Order’ scheme is handled by AS Interactive.
Why: VIVA is the first German TV Channel to offer an innovative and user-friendly mobile-commerce solution to its entire audience. The interactivity and ease-of-use of this application are the main factors behind the immediate adoption by VIVA viewers.
Outcome: Available on all of the mobile networks in Germany (T-Mobile, Vodafone, O2 and E-Plus), the widespread availability to all viewers has ensured that Info & Order is a fantastic success!
Since its launch, the level of merchant transactions has continued to increase month on month reaching a consistently high volume of purchases via the channel.
