Describe the objective of the promotion.
We had to launch DishTruHD+, an upgraded hi definition set top box technology with an additional feature, Unlimited Recording at no extra cost. This is an unmatched product offering in the market. As other players gave time-bound recording facility, at a much higher price. We had to support a campaign that relied on traditional media like press and outdoor, with an impactful idea that would generate talking points for the product.
DishTV was targeting hard core entertainment buffs who are extremely particular about their TV program or movies.

Describe how the promotion developed from concept to implementation.
We decided to give them a LIVE product demonstration. We tied up with cinemas and with consent from creators and producers of popular movies, we used the post interval movie footage as intermission commercials. Just when the audience began to trickle out for refreshments, we played the movie before time. A recording icon blinked on screen as the movie played. Just when the audience thought they had missed the movie, movie paused and a message reassured them that they had not. The movie was then rewound to the point from where the interval began, and to the audience's relief, replayed post interval.

Explain why the method of promotion was most relevant to the product or service.
DishTruHD+ is a hi definition set top box and the target audience are hard core entertainment buffs, who cannot imagine missing a moment of their favourite TV content. Cinemas seemed like the most appropriate place to get this audience to experience the new product offering, that allows them to record their favourite movies or programs. At no additional cost. Cinema also allowed us to demostrate the technology benefits to those who had not experience Hi definition set top boxes with recording feature.

Describe the success of the promotion with both client and consumer including some quantifiable results.
The demonstration of the technology with recording icon and rewind, pause replay functions that followed gave the audience a first hand experience of what entertainment buffs could expect from DishTruHD+.
