be working with a client that understands the true potential of mobile media
as it relates to television."
    One of GameTV's first interactive contests is the channel's Watch & Win
promotion. Airing in primetime every evening, Watch & Win provides viewers
with the opportunity to tune in for a series of nightly trivia questions.
