CBS Atlanta’s video service leverages Mogreet’s Multimedia Messaging (MMS) platform, which delivers video, picture, and audio content to virtually any mobile phone and any wireless carrier, and provides the largest MMS reach in the mobile world. By leveraging MMS, brands can reach 90 percent of mobile phone subscribers, because neither a smartphone, nor a data plan, is required to view multimedia content. This is significant, because only 23 percent of mobile phones today are smartphones, whereas nearly every phone shipped in the past three years in the U.S. comes pre-loaded with MMS capabilities integrated into the device. Furthermore, wireless carriers bundle text, picture, and video messages into the same rate plan, which means MMS messages don’t cost any more to send or receive – yet they deliver much more engagement and generate more excitement among consumers.
