Fandango Partnering With Cingular on Mobile Movie Ticketing Service
Posted on 20-Mar-2006 23:42. | Tags Filed under: News.

Fandango is partnering with Cingular in the USA on a state-of-the art mobile movie information service featured on the entertainment section of Web-enabled Cingular phones. Cingular customers can also dial "* V" to access Fandango movie show times and ticketing, using voice commands as part of Cingular's VoiceInfo service.

Fandango's mobile entertainment application, was developed in association with wireless application developer Crisp Wireless. At launch, the service enables mobile users to obtain movie tickets; movie information including film reviews; show times, theater information and maps; and mobile alerts when tickets for upcoming movies go on sale.

Moviegoers are also able to send a ZIP code in a text message to "FNDGO" (36346) and receive show times and ticket availability for nearby theaters. Future offerings may include movie-related wallpaper, ring tones and games and the possibility of bar-coded tickets on a mobile device.

Fandango operates the US largest movie ticketing service, selling tickets for more than 13,600 screens and 1,150 theatres in the US theatre circuits.
