Verizon and Motorola Team Up to Offer Consumers the ’Motorola Draft Day Experience’ Sweepstakes


Contestants Can Win the Chance to Attend the 2011 NFL Draft in New York City

NEW YORK - Verizon and Motorola Mobility Inc. are teaming up to offer consumers a chance of a lifetime for any football fan: a trip to the 2011 NFL Draft. The Motorola Draft Day Experience sweepstakes will reward one lucky winner with an all-expenses-paid trip to the event, to be held April 28-30 at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.

Anyone can enter the contest online at Contestants will be asked to provide their e-mail address and view a brief video about Verizon’s FiOS services. The entry period is currently open and lasts through March 31. One grand-prize winner will receive a trip for two, including airfare, hotel and tickets to the 2011 NFL Draft as well as $500 in spending money. Ten first-prize winners will receive tickets to draft parties hosted by NFL teams.

“Past success with these types of promotions has shown that FiOS customers are also avid football fans,” said John Wimsatt, senior vice president of marketing for Verizon. “Our customers know that Verizon offers an incredible football offering that can’t be beat, with TV, broadband and wireless services delivered over our advanced networks. We’re thrilled to once again work with Motorola and offer such a unique opportunity.”

Jean Pierre Le Cannellier, vice president of marketing, Motorola Mobility, said, “Motorola is excited to once again join Verizon in promoting their FiOS NFL offering and highlighting the extensive range of advanced FiOS services available to consumers. Motorola is proud that our products, such as QIP set-top boxes and DROID smartphones, help Verizon create a multi-screen entertainment experience that delights their subscribers.”

The contest follows last year’s Ultimate Game Day Access sweepstakes, through which Verizon and Motorola provided one fan with a trip to Super Bowl XLV in North Texas. The contests help to enhance Verizon’s extensive football offerings, at no additional cost.

In addition, FiOS TV offers NFL RedZone, which features every touchdown from every game on Sunday afternoons and delivers exciting moments as they happen. The channel keeps fans up-to-date in real time, switching from game to game with live look-ins, highlights and a chance to see the key plays in both high definition (FiOS TV Channel 835) and standard definition (FiOS TV Channel 335).

Verizon FiOS TV offers a broad collection of programming, with more than 520 all-digital channels including up to 138 HD channels and 19,000 monthly video-on-demand titles. FiOS customers can watch their favorite programming on their own schedule, and on any TV in their home, with the multi-room DVR service powered by Motorola QIP set-top boxes. And now, FiOS video-on-demand titles can be watched on PC’s and mobile devices, such as DROID smartphones, with the new Flex View service.
