"In record numbers, our fans are turning to their phones for engaging entertainment experiences, and finding MTV Networks video, mobile websites, games, widgets and more that connect with nearly every conceivable demo, on any occasion," said Greg Clayman, Executive Vice President, Digital Distribution and Business Development, MTVN. "We want to empower our consumers to go deep with our content on every platform, and with that in mind we continue to build a mobile portfolio with breadth and depth unrivalled in the industry."
