What better way to deliver Warner Bros. content than through the one device they take with them everywhere," said Jim Noonan, senior vice president and general manager of Warner Bros. Online. "Verizon Wireless was the first company to deliver mobile video in the U.S.; they are pioneers in delivering rich, multimedia content to their customers. Working with them enables us to offer our audience programming that is entertaining and relevant wherever they go."
