Screenvision and ENTV Create Branded Entertainment Segment to Highlight Features of New LG Smartphone
New York, N.Y., AUGUST 8, 2014 – Screenvision, a national cinema advertising leader, today announced an in-cinema integration to promote the LG G3 smartphone. Screenvision’s creative services group ‘40 Foot Solutions’ and leading entertainment news provider ENTV have teamed up to showcase the features of the new LG G3 through the very popular selfie. The branded entertainment segment is running within Screenvision’s Front & Center preshow within its nationwide 14,200 movie theatre screens network.
In the segment, ENTV host Melana Scantlin shares popular selfies and gives a demonstration on the best way to take a selfie with the new LG G3. Additionally, the LG segment will feature an added trivia element so moviegoers can engage with the brand.
“We are thrilled that LG has chosen cinema to highlight its LG G3 smartphone, and reach our audience that is made up of more than 50 percent millennials who are tech-savvy and are leaders in mobile-phone ownership and purchasing,” said John McCauley, EVP, CMO & Strategic Alliances, Screenvision. “Given the insatiable appetite for celebrity news, and the extremely popular selfie, we felt that this concept would really resonate with our audience. We are excited to collaborate with our friends at ENTV to provide a fun and engaging segment for LG.”
