Nike and Maven Networks introduce JogaTV

MUMBAI: Nike, Inc., and Maven Networks have launched a new internet TV channel - JogaTV. People can watch exclusive videos featuring some of the soccer greatest players, as well as some of the world's best untapped local heroes as they demonstrate Joga Bonito -- or Play Beautiful -- for everyone to enjoy.

JogaTV offers an insider view into the world of soccer via multiple video programs, all of which can be shared among friends. Video programming on JogaTV features international stars of the game including Ronaldo, Ronaldinho, Thierry Henry, and Wayne Rooney. Soccer legend Eric Cantona stars in most of the videos as the disruptive advocate leading the rebellion against slow, controlling, boring soccer and the return of a beautiful, creative style of play.

Nike's global Joga Bonito campaign is multi-faceted, encompassing:, the world's largest soccer-specific social network; Joga3, a short- field 3-on-3 game that will allow more than three million kids around the world to bring Joga Bonito to life, a Joga Bonito series of commercials and JogaTV.

Maven Media System is the technology link between video programming from Nike and its growing social network of soccer fans. Based on patent- pending technology, Maven's integrated video publishing and distribution platform provides unrivalled customer experiences across multiple devices for JogaTV.

Once the JogaTV internet television channel is launched, the JogaTV icon lives on the soccer fan's desktop for easy access. Each week, new content is delivered behind the scenes via the Maven Media System and automatically added to JogaTV. At this time a new program series is unlocked for users to explore. Nike will unlock a total of 17 different programs, one each week between April and July.

In addition to each of Nike's new Joga Bonito commercials, content on JogaTV includes:

Original experiential videos featuring global soccer stars,
Exclusive videos featuring soccer kids around the world demonstrating their skills,
US National Team star Clint Dempsey and his "Don't Tread" rap video,
Viral videos featuring Brazilian greats Ronaldinho and Ronaldo,
A weekly blog titled This is American Soccer,
And a running clock counting down the days, hours, minutes and seconds to the US National team's first game in Germany this summer vs. the Czech Republic.

"Like all kids who love sport, soccer players and fans have a passion for their game that's almost insatiable. By launching this viral, online program, we tap into that spirit by delivering highly-coveted content while extending and demonstrating the message of Joga Bonito," said Nike US advertising director Adam Roth.

Maven Networks CEO Hilmi Ozguc said, "Maven's technology allows Nike to directly reach its audiences with an interactive experience that genuinely demonstrates the future of Internet TV, and enables them to accurately target and measure their campaigns. True Internet TV channels are redefining how online content is distributed, and experienced."

Maven Networks' technology is the only broadband video platform that delivers a true Internet TV experience using full-screen, HD-quality video for PCs, Internet-connected TVs, video iPods, PSPs and other portable devices.

JogaTV is available through select soccer and youth-oriented websites including and
