Get set for 3G video dating with The Dating Channel and Gaydate TV

dating.jpgMobile dating isn’t big yet, but it will be. And I don’t mean people ringing wrong numbers, getting chatting and ending up married either. Although that’s heartwarming, obviously.

No, digital TV channels The Dating Channel and Gaydate TV are launching a new 3G video-dating service. It involves calling the shortcode 80228, and recording a video profile of yourself (“Hi, I’m 27, like eating guinea pigs and daubing walls in my own bodily fluids, and fear chives. Looking for similar.”) partners with Vodafone to offer mobile dating service, the UK’s largest dating service, has announced a new partnership with Vodafone to bring a mobile dating service to the Vodafone Mobile Internet service.

This will give Vodafone users complete access to the Dating Direct website, and its 3.5m active members, straight from their mobile phone.

The new service has been developed and optimised for mobile phone use, and will allow users to browse images and profiles, manage their own content, upload photos, and even sign up as a new member directly from their mobile.
