Red Planet Media is headquartered in Orlando Florida. [2]

JumpInMobile.TV[edit]

In July 2008, Red Planet Media announced the launch of a mobile video-on-demand service for AT&T and Sprint mobile phone subscribers with three content channels, Funimation, Cine Mexicano, and Noti Mobile[3][4] The JumpInMobile.TV service enables long form video content to play on video-enabled mobile phones. Funimation made full use of this capability by offering entire television seasons of each of the titles, up to 26 half-hour episodes each. Three titles were part of the launch, Gunslinger Girl, MoonPhase, and Galaxy Railways. Two of the channels, Cine Mexicano and Noti Mobile, are Spanish language. Cine Mexicano's initial offering included three full length, feature films divided into on-demand chapters. Noti Mobile, a news channel created by Globemedia, consists of three daily news feeds covering regional Latin American news, entertainment news and sporting news delivered by anchors in Colombia and Miami. An estimated 30 million phones were supported at the time of the launch. Each channel requires a monthly subscription ranging from $3.99 to $4.99, which appears on the subscriber's monthly phone bill.
