Telecom New Zealand partners with TVNZ to stream Olympic highlights to mobile phones
Kiwi sports fans will be able to keep tabs on our Olympians via video clips streamed direct to their mobile phones free of charge, thanks to a partnership between Television New Zealand and Telecom.

Telecom customers with video-enabled mobiles will be able to view the best of TVNZ's Olympic coverage from almost anywhere.

The TVNZ clips will be up to three minutes long, and will feature the best of the broadcaster's games coverage including Kiwi performances, athlete interviews, and key events of the day from Beijing.

Telecom customers will be able to stream up to 20 clips per day free of charge.

"Our customers will be able to get Olympic action over our 3G network direct to the palm of their hands - right from the opening ceremony," says Telecom GM of Consumer Marketing, David Craig.

"This is yet another example of the prevalence of mobile technology and the demand we�re seeing for customers to have it all in one device, says Mr Craig."

Telecom and TVNZ have been working on the technical side of the arrangement for a number of months to ensure it is ready for 8 August, 2008.
