UK mobile operators 3 and O2 are launching a mobile video portal that will bring together their existing services. EyeVibe is currently being tested and will be launched by the end of February.
The service will combine O2 LookAtMe! And 3’s SeeMeTV, which allow users to submit video clips from their phones. Users pay a small fee for downloading a video with a small cut going to the users that uploaded the clip.
EyeVibe users will have access to a range of mobile video content, which they can vote and comment on. They are also able to message each other.
Since the launch of SeeMeTV and LookAtMe! users have paid for over 32 million video downloads. This has generated £800,000 for users who have uploaded more than 60,000 clips. These two mobile portals generate 28 million mobile page impressions every month.
LookAtMe! and SeeMeTV were developed by Yospace, a mobile applications company which is owned by Bauer Consumer Media.
