C-BBC joins Greentube´s media partner network around high-quality free download games

Vienna, 21st October, 2008: BBC, one of the world´s leading TV stations and renowned in the industry for its proven interactive competence, has signed a license deal with Vienna-based Greentube AG, a top developer of high-quality free download games financed through in-game advertising. “Mountainbike Challenge 08” was launched within the newly established “Sports Village” section of the C-BBC website, set up for the parallel promotion of games during the Olympic Games in Beijing, China.
“Mountainbike Challenge 08” is the flagship game of the “Sports Village” section and has attracted numerous C-BBC visitors since its launch in early August 2008. The game season lasts until the end of October 2008.

This further confirms our strategies and honours the work we are doing in constantly improving the concepts and games we are living for.

New games will be added to the existing portfolio within the next 12 months and several new media partners have agreed to license the upcoming season of “Ski Challenge” starting in December 2008.
