Bravo, Sprint Wing Text-Messaging Poll

6/10/2004 3:40 AM Eastern

Can’t wait for the presidential election in November? Pull out your Sprint Corp. cellular phone and watch The West Wing on Bravo.

Starting Monday, during the cable network’s rebroadcasts of the NBC show, viewers will be prompted on-air to answer polls by "texting" -- text-messaging, or short messaging services -- their responses to short code “Bravo” (27286).

Results will then be tabulated in real-time and sent to participants so they can compare their votes with those of other fans.

GoldPocket Interactive’s “EM Connect” is powering the polls.

Bravo airs Wing Mondays at 7 p.m. and 11 p.m. (EST).
