Here is a unique opportunity for emerging artists to get your music videos into distribution on mobile phone networks around the world!

Ultrashort Media, one of the most serious and accomplished mobile media shops out of LA, recently launched a music entertainment channel streaming music videos to mobile phones in the UK on the O2 Network, and in the U.S. on the Sprint Network. We are accepting selected music video submissions from serious musicians, to air on our channels in these a potentially other markets. This is a great licensing and publicity opportunity for emerging artists, and a good chance to get your music into the latest and hottest distribution channel: mobile video phones.

How it works: You submit your EPK with a music video (you must be a Supersonic member in order to upload video to your EPK), and upon selection we will encode it and stream the videos to audience via the mobile telcos. Once this is done, the video becomes available for viewing/listening on the mobile phones of young people nationwide in England, Ireland, and the United States. You never know who might be watching/listening, but one thing is for sure: the viewers are from the highly influential early adopter markets in London, Dublin, Miami, New York, LA and all major cities in between. All selected artists will be paid royalties for their music/video usage and at least 5 slots on the channel are reserved for Sonicbids members! So act fast on this.

About Ultrashort Media, Inc.

Ultrashort Media was created by the founder of BigDigit, Inc., the first Indie content provider to the Sprint network in the US and the O2 network in the UK, and the first Indie channel to stream video nationally over 3g networks in the US. With distribution agreements for mobile media all around the world Bigdigit Inc. is a respected leader in the field of streaming video to handsets.

Ultrashort Media has relationships with labels such as Universal and Virgin, among others. They have verifiable global distribution today. This means that they are in the enviable position of actually delivering on getting your music videos played in the hands of young listeners across the world.

Lastly, and maybe most importantly, the distribution channels pay quarterly. Ultrashort Media allocates a portion of that money and determines a per stream play rate in order to pay artists accordingly. Global publicity, and the opportunity to reach international youth audiences is available to selected artists now.
