TGR's Re:Session Now Available on iTunes
Digital Media Distribution Expands Audience and Overseas Opportunities
Jackson WY, (Oct 2009)—Continuing to lead in the realm of new media, Teton Gravity Research is proud to announce its most recent ski and snowboard film, Re:Session, now available on iTunes for distribution and purchase. The 65-minute ski and snowboard film is available for digital download for $7.99.
Making use of the latest forms of digital distribution is a growing trend for TGR. When TGR launched podcasts on iTunes 3 years ago (a free service where subscribers can download weekly high-resolution video webisodes to their computers or iPods) an organic subscriber list of over 70,000 quickly amassed.
“As a youthfully-driven multi-media company, we’re very aware that we have to embrace new forms of media,” co-founder of TGR, Todd Jones said, “whether it’s opening up our films for digital download, selling digital music, fostering online community or producing podcasts, we’re constantly on the lookout for creative new ways to distribute our message.”
In recent years, TGR’s online brand has taken off. TetonGravity.com currently boasts more than 300,000 unique visitors and over 5 million pages views every month. With over 25 percent of those users coming from outside the US, digital distribution in iTunes could make a significant impact on sales and brand awareness. Todd Jones said, “When you think of all of the hassles and costs of international distribution, digital formats offer instant, easy and inexpensive options for everyone. We are pushing to expand into the international iTunes market in the near future.”
