Users can access exclusive footage from latest top designer's shows from around the globe, interviews and profiles of the world's top models, behind the scenes videos of some of the hottest fashion shoots, Hollywood stars on the red carpet, and VIP parties and fashionable events from around the world all delivered right to the palm of consumer's hands. The exclusive premium content in the VIP area is now available for a subscription fee of only 2, 99€/month or 0, 99€/week through WAC's new operator billing solution, enabling immediate access and seamless payment via the users' monthly phone bills.
The app is expected to launch in early February 2012, and will be available for download to all Android users worldwide through individual app-stores and on operator portals. "We are thrilled about the strategic partnership we have established with WAC and Golden Gekko", said Peter T. Cohen, Fashion TV's Executive Vice President - Business Development. "The launch of this compelling new app to the global Android mobile marketplace will be an exciting offering of FTV's uniquely compelling content that covers the best in fashion, beauty, luxury and lifestyle. This will appeal to a very broad mobile audience, and we look forward to expanding our programming strategies with WAC in the months ahead".
"It goes without saying that we're delighted to have Fashion TV using our new payment API," said Peters Suh, CEO of WAC. "The app has a strong mix of freemium and premium content that will appeal to consumers and we're confident other developers will use the new WAC billing model to great effect in future apps too."
The Wholesale Applications Community (WAC) is an open global alliance made up of leading communications companies including network operators, device and network equipment manufacturers. WAC is committed to making it easier for developers to innovate by using operator network APIs delivered by a single cross-operator API platform.
