ROK, the UK based mobile technology company, has recently acquired Fun Little Movies (FLM) to jointly offer made-for-mobile video content to carriers around the world. Today, Reeltime.com, an internet television network, has announced an agreement with FLM and ROK to allow them to distribute ReelTime’s programs and content to its network of partners.
ROK has distribution deals with several US carriers such as Sprint, Verizon, and AT&T, as well as international carriers in China, Japan, Europe, Africa, and South America. ROK is also available directly to consumers on Nokia’s Eseries handsets through the Nokia Download! application.
ReelTime.com is in the process of rolling out high-resolution video streaming, and is excited to be able to offer FLM’s video ‘shorts’ in addition to their library of feature films. FLM and ROK are also excited to be able to offer ReelTime.com’s library to their partners.
Sounds like a win-win situation, though I’m not entirely sold on watching feature films on my handset, at least while they’re streamed and not locally stored.
