VH1 Mobile Launches 'Mobile Junk 20,' an Interactive Mobile Application Companion to VH1's Hit Viral Video Show 'Web Junk 20'

New Application Lets Users Capture and Upload Mobile Video for Potential Inclusion in Episodes of the Weekly Series, 'Web Junk 20'

NEW YORK, Dec. 18 -- Beginning today, VH1 Mobile will offer "Mobile Junk 20," a new mobile application that gives users the ability to upload video and photos taken with their mobile devices. Sprint is the first carrier to offer the application, which is available via the Sprint Vision and Power Vision networks.

Content submitted using the new application will be considered for inclusion in future episodes of "Web Junk 20." The application adds to VH1 Mobile's current "Web Junk 20" offering, which includes a dedicated channel for weekly and archived video clips from the show. "Web Junk 20" clips on VH1 Mobile have consistently been the #1 or #2 most viewed video content on VH1 Mobile throughout 2006.

In addition to offering users the functionality to capture and upload user-generated video and photos, the application gives users the ability to watch, rate, and share videos and photos submitted by others. In version 2.0, due out in early 2007, additional functionality will allow users to create profile pages and leave messages, or "stickies," for others creating a unique, user-generated mobile community.

"The launch of 'Mobile Junk 20' further extends the ways viewers can interact with our popular 'Web Junk 20' franchise and VH1," said Tom Calderone, Executive Vice President and General Manager, VH1. "When we launched the series last January, we offered viewers a way to upload their found and created content online. 'Mobile Junk' rounds out the experience by giving fans a way to submit and exchange the creative content they shoot with their mobile phones."

"Mobile Junk 20" is available exclusively on Sprint through January for $3.99 per month on select multimedia phones (standard data charges apply). Sprint customers can download the application via their phones, at http://www.sprint.com/digitallounge or by texting "junk" to 2323. The application was envisioned, created and designed by VH1 Mobile; developed and powered by Nellymoser, the leading next-generation mobile media platform company. "Mobile Junk 20" will roll out on additional mobile carriers in 2007.
