UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. October 29, 2010 - NBC Universal Digital Entertainment, NBC Universal Digital Sales and Dove(R), the leading personal care brand, formally announce the formation of a new mobile entertainment portal for women - Dove Good2Go. Dove is NBC Universal's inaugural partner in the creation of its first-ever cross-property mobile destination. This strategic partnership creates a platform that will service and attract a female audience seeking mobile entertainment on-the-go. During the year long partnership Good2Go introduces a wide scope of integrated marketing platforms that includes a robust mobile entertainment experience with customized digital content from NBC.com, oxygen.com, bravotv.com, accesshollywood.com and iVillage.

Dove Good2Go is available to approximately 34MM* female smartphone users and will provide content in a customized and editorially crafted way that fits the mobile space.

Content will continue to rotate throughout the entire year.

This includes a trip to LA and chance to attend to a red carpet movie premiere from "Access Hollywood," a shopping spree in New York courtesy of iVillage, a trip to attend fashion week (February 2011) with Style by Bravo and more.
