MUMBAI: International news channel CNN has entered into an alliance with wireless marketing solutions provider, Mobile2Win (M2W) for an SMS marketing promotion. The channel will offer its viewers an opportunity to participate in the Your World Today promotion through SMS and win exciting prizes.

Aimed at driving additional viewership to CNN's primetime programme Your World Today, the channel urges Indian viewers to participate in a contest by simply text messaging CNN to 8558. Players will then have to answer a question with multiple-choice options. One winner will be picked for one new questions every week.

An official release quoted Turner Broadcasting System- Asia Pacific's vice president of corporate communications and marketing Grace Wong as saying, "Through initiatives like this, we hope to create more interactivity between our viewers and the CNN brand, to educate them about CNN in a fun way, and to encourage them to keep tuning into CNN."
