TC Media to Represent Cinoche.com
MONTREAL, April 12, 2012 – TC Media is pleased to announce that Cinoche.com has given it exclusive rights to represent Cinoche.com for digital advertising in the Quebec market. Cinoche.com is hugely popular with movie-goers all across Quebec and receives 524,000 unique visitors and more than five million page views a month. TC Media is thus again expanding its digital offering in the "Entertainment" category.
"Cinoche.com is the flagship brand for everything movie-related in Quebec. It provides accurate, real time information in every region of the province, making it the front runner in the market. It is a quality addition to our portfolio for local and national advertisers," said Dominique-Sébastien Forest, Vice President, National Digital Solutions, TC Media.
"We wanted an advertising representative who knows the Quebec public well. TC Media has a large network of national advertisers and a highly developed hyperlocal network through its community newspapers. It makes perfect sense for us to work closely together," said Joé Bussière, General Manager, Cinoche.com.
A mobile iPhone app has been available for Cinoche.com since January 2012.
