'Red Dwarf' makes mobile return
For just £3 a week, subscribers will receive an animated Red Dwarf 'mobisode' made up from clips from the show. Users can also access a virtual social Red Dwarf network where they can chat, upload and rate pictures and videos, with options to download ringtones, wallpapers, screensavers and videos.
Pitch chief executive Martin Bowley said: "Red Dwarf is iconic with millions of die-hard fans across the world. Combining such comic genius with the latest in mobile entertainment technology creates an exciting and dynamic environment that will move the cult of Red Dwarf into another dimension."
The BBC comedy, which starred Chris Barrie, Craig Charles and Robert Llewellyn, is nearing its 20th anniversary, with DVD sales approaching 4 million units. A film of the series is also currently being planned.
Producer Charles Armitage said: "Pitch Entertainment has created amazing, ground breaking technology that gives our fans the chance to access and enjoy Red Dwarf whilst on the move. The weekly animated 'mobisodes', the social networking functionality and the exclusive content will enhance the Red Dwarf experience for everyone."
