Simon Webbe launches 3's MPops – the mobile Top Of The Pops

Mobile phones

We previewed Mpops a couple of weeks back, said to be 3’s version of Top Of The Pops for mobiles. Well, you can find out for yourself if it lives up to the hype, with the show available to view from today, with guest presenter Simon Webbe (the bloke that used to be in Blue) .

The interactive mobile broadcast will go out live every Friday afternoon from today (December 1st), but only to 3 customers. In the first episode of MPops, Simon Webbe will run through the top selling tracks of the week, previewing an exclusive video, interview or behind the scenes gig. Viewers will be able to interact during the show with instant downloads of the tracks featured, including videos and realtones as well as competitions.

According to Graeme Oxby of 3, “The Top of the Pops’ audience hasn’t disappeared – they simply aren’t sitting in front of the TV anymore. So instead of having to sit around waiting for the audience, we’re taking a chart show to them”
