Orange launches 'Orange Film To Go' a new customer film reward which gives customers a film to download every week

September 06, 2011   Business News
(PRLEAP.COM) Orange Film To Go offers Orange customers a film to download from iTunes every Thursday(worth up to £4.49), at no cost*. What's more, they will be able to download a film and watch it on a mobile device where and when it suits them.

Orange Film To Go allows customers to be rewarded with great offers and access to films they love. The deal complements Orange's hugely popular Orange Wednesdays offer with which customers can get 2 for 1 cinema tickets every week.

Orange Home Broadband customers, as well as Orange mobile customers on pay as you go, pay monthly, mobile broadband or business will benefit from the offer every Thursday by simply texting 'FILMTOGO' to 85060* or by logging onto the http://facebook.com/orangefilmclub page. From there they will be directed to enter the response code via the http://orange.co.uk/filmtogo website to start the iTunes download, which can then be viewed on a laptop, Mac, PC, iPad, iPhone or iPod touch - wherever they are so that customers have the flexibility to enjoy the film wherever they like.

Orange has worked with leading film distributors to select a range of must-watch films to offer at launch including The Wrestler, The Ghost and Che: Part One, with more titles to be announced over the coming months.

Spencer McHugh, Brand Director at Orange UK said: "We know Orange customers love film, so adding the Orange Film To Go service to our existing portfolio of film offers is hugely exciting for us. Giving our valued customers a film download every week to enjoy at home or out and about on a mobile device is a great way to thank them for being part of Orange. We've got some fantastic titles lined up for the launch and even more yet to be announced, so we're hoping to see a significant number of our customers taking up this offer."
