ExtraTainment is recognized as one of the world's leading companies for the creation and delivery of mobile multimedia entertainment content.

ExtraTainment offers streaming, narrow bandwidth entertainment content such as cartoons, animations and games to mobile network operators to be delivered on SMS, WAP, 3G (UMTS; Universal Mobile Telecommunications System), Pocket PCs and internet-based (mobile) terminals. Thanks to its narrow bandwidth-based multimedia content - a unique invention by ExtraTainment - mobile networks can now offer multimedia content at an early stage without the immediate need for high bandwidth networks like 3G. ExtraTainment's streaming cartoons can be sent over low to medium speed GSM and GPRS networks, enabling a 3G experience over 2G networks. The content of ExtraTainment is aimed at a younger audience, is not tied to any language or culture and is therefore extremely suitable for the global mobile market. ExtraTainment also delivers locally focused content for markets in Europe and Asia Pacific.
