Cult Cartoons Simpsons And South Park Go Mobile

Comedy Central has launched a South Park mobile application, reports the Hollywood Reporter. The service will launch on Sprint by the end of the month and (CC hopes) all the other carriers by the end of the year. The service will cost $3.99 a month, with ringtones and wallpapers available for one-off downloads. The service includes video content updated weekly, production blogs, exclusive news, Q&As with the shows creators, storyboard art and an episode guide. There’s also an avatar app, to let people build their own South Park character.
Meanwhile, 20th Century Fox will release a The Simpsons Movie collectible phone…it will be a slim phone from Samsung colored bright yellow. It will include exclusive Simpson’s content, although what that is hasn’t been announced. It better me more than a wallpaper and ringtone, there’s a lot of stuff that could be done pretty simply — this is the perfect time to personalize icons, for example. (press release)
