MONTREAL, Feb. 6, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - As Bell's Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic Games marketing campaign begins in earnest, the company today confirmed that Canadians have full mobile access to Sochi 2014 live and on-demand directly on their smartphones and tablets with Bell Mobile TV and the Bell TV app.
"As a premier national partner to the Canadian Olympic Team, Bell is proud to support our athletes and bring all the action from Sochi to our customers on any screen they choose. We're delivering the best of Canada on the best of Bell," said Wade Oosterman, President of Bell Mobility and Residential Services, and Chief Brand Officer at Bell. "We all have fond memories of Canada's Golden Games, Vancouver 2010, which is where the concept of mobile TV first began to take off. Now more people than ever will be watching Canada's best at Sochi 2014 on Bell's world-leading mobile networks."
Bell announced today that more than 1.2 million Canadians now subscribe to Bell Mobile TV, 66% more than a year ago. Coverage of Sochi 2014 will be available from CBC / SRC and on affiliate channels TSN, TSN2 and RDS, Sportsnet, and TVA on smartphones and tablets through Bell Mobile TV and the Bell TV App, which lets Bell Fibe and Satellite TV customers watch on the go over Wi-Fi networks (Bell is Canada's largest Wi-Fi provider with more than 4,000 locations Canada-wide including at partners Indigo, McDonald's and Tim Hortons).
Bell's Olympic advertising
Bell's Sochi 2014 multimedia marketing campaign is under way, including multiple new English and French-language television ads that feature Bell networks bringing Canada's athletes to Canadians across all screens.
The first ad - "The Best of Canada on the Best of Bell" - debuted during the Super Bowl, watched by an average audience of 8 million Canadians on CTV and RDS. The fast-paced ad features approximately 50 vignettes of Canadians of all kinds watching our athletes compete on TV, smartphones, tablets and laptops in all kinds of places, and has already received a very positive response on social media.
"With our Sochi 2014 campaign, we've worked to capture the essence of Canadians' warm and enduring support for our athletes, and all the ways and all the places we can watch and cheer them on at the Winter Games with Bell networks and screens," said Rick Seifeddine, Bell's Senior VP, Brand. "It was a true team effort to show Canadians from across the country cheering on Team Canada, and we hope everyone has as much fun watching the ads as we had making them."
National media buy for all Bell's Sochi 2014 advertising was handled by Media Experts of Montréal. Airing on television throughout Sochi 2014 including during the Opening Ceremonies on February 7 until the Closing Ceremonies on February 23, Bell's Sochi 2014 advertising is now available on YouTube and Facebook:
