Vivienne Adshead, head of commercial content delivery for Orange Multimedia Operations said: "This activity allows more than 13 million Orange customers to engage in movies on a variety of levels. Whether it's deciding what to see, or where, previewing a movie or asking another Orange customer for their review of the film, or whether it's getting your 2 for 1 tickets."
