¡Sorpresa! Goes Wireless with Verizon


Spanish-language kids’ content from ¡Sorpresa! is now available on Verizon Wireless’ V CAST service.

Verizon Wireless customers with LG VX8300 mobile phones can now access one- to five-minute clips from six of the network’s series: El Planeta de Remi (Puerto Rico), Kitty’s Paradise (Japan), ¿Sabías Que? (United States), Kappa Maki (Japan), Tienda Majica (Puerto Rico) and Cachuereos (Chile).

“There is a tremendous demand for Spanish-language content on mobile phones, and we at ¡Sorpresa! are confident that the wide range of Spanish-speaking content we will provide Verizon Wireless customers will be eagerly received by the Hispanic population nationwide,” ¡Sorpresa! parent Firestone Communications CEO Leonard Firestone said in a prepared statement.

“Our young audience is on the move, and we want their favorite ¡Sorpresa! programs available virtually any place they go and at any time,” he added.
