iClipx Global Media announced today that their extensive video podcast library will be accessible to new iPhone™ users. iClipx’s extreme sports programming is already available for free via iTunes, iClipx.com and hundreds of other video sharing websites and podcast directories.
iClipx content includes motor-cross freestyle, skate and snow boarding, power boat racing, National Jet Ski tour and other live events. Videos are produced in widescreen format and encoded in both flash and H.264(iPod) formats. To date, iClipx has over 600,000 monthly subscribers, 60% of which use iTunes to access iClipx video podcasts.
In addition, the company announced a partnership agreement with Media Rights America (MRA) to distribute iClipx content through MRA’s network of mobile network partners.
“We’re excited about the opportunity to provide our customers with more mobile access options to our content, notes Skip Fredricks, president of iClipx Global Media. Our community is constantly on the go, and we want to give them the ability to access our content on their terms.”
As part of this new partnership, iClipx and MRA plan to create new original video content, ringtones and games specifically for the extreme sports community.
“We are pleased to be able to offer our clients this amazing footage,” says Brad Kimura, VP of Content Rights Acquisition for MRA. “iClipx Global Media does an incredible job, providing the most eye-catching footage of extreme athletic performances.”
