“With the incredible growth of data-enabled mobile devices, more and more consumers are seeking out local content while on the move,” Patrick Younge, president and general manager, Travel Channel Media, said in a statement. “As a business, Travel Channel Media is uniquely positioned to engage consumers in the mobile space.”
Powered by patented personalization and search technology from Earthcomber LLC, Travel Channel GO is available for any mobile Web-enabled device with an active data plan, with richer experiences tailored for more advanced devices such as Apple’s iPhone and Research In Motion’s BlackBerry products.
Travel Channel is available in more than 91 million U.S. households.
