The Best Podcast Ever: Movie Trailers!

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Zune Articles & Resources" @ 10:00 AM

I love watching movie trailers, maybe because sometimes the trailers are better than the movie itself. The art of movie trailer editing is truly magical; even the worst movie can be made to look amazing by clever edits and a great background song. I've long wished there was a Windows Media Center-based solution for watching movie trailers, and I still want that, but I've found the next best thing: the New Movie Trailers podcast, courtesy of the Zune Marketplace. I'm not sure how long this has been available, and for many of you this is old news, but I have to say I was thrilled when I found it. Most of the trailers are in HD, so the quality is fantastic. It's also available via the trailer Web page, so you can stream movie trailers without needing to go into the Zune software (the trailers won't be in HD though). Nicely done Zune team, nicely done!

Zune Commercials Starting - In Movie Theatres?

"Don’t get me wrong, buzz ads, blogs, and banners are nice, but I wanted something more. Well when I went to the movies Friday, I saw my first Zune commercial. I had just got finished seeing the Gears of War commercial (don’t really like it, and had already seen it ) when surprise, surprise, I see Zunes on screen..."



Woody at Zune Corps reported seeing a Zune commercial before Man of The Year in a local movie theatre. It's great to see the Zune starting to go mainstream as it gets closer to the launch date, because it means when I say the word "Zune" people will start to have some concept of what I'm talking about. Brand recognition takes quite a while though, unless there's major mainstream exposure. The Zune team has to get a Zune on CSI, Desperate Housewives, or any other big TV show - that will get them some major brand recognition. I'm a bit surprised to see the movie ads though - much of the marketing up to this point has been solely focused on indy music bands and indy music blogs, and while that's fine to start things off, if they want to sell some serious numbers this holiday season, people need to know what the heck the Zune is.
