Bro'town on a cellphone

Vale, Sione, Jeff da Māori and the rest of the guys from the television programme bro’Town can be on your phone. Digital animation allows sounds (like ring tones), images (like screensavers) and mini-movies to be supplied in many different media. So mobile phone users can download and save bro’Town clips to their cellphones.
