"BMP's 'rolling television network' is a great new addition to make airshows even more exciting, and opens up outstanding viewing opportunities for aviation and space flight content. Our goal is to grow the audience base for Air & Space TV and increase our value to additional potential advertisers," said Phillip Hurst, CEO, Air & Space Television.

BMP will utilize the ASTV content to enhance its video performances at air shows, it will also promote ASTV to the assembled avid aviation fans and the general public as well. The agreement also allows BMP to develop its own television shows for play on the ASTV Network, which will become available to viewers via broadband, Video On Demand, cable television and satellite channels worldwide. BMP is already in development on several show concepts featuring aviation themes. About the Rolling Television Network
Advertisers have learned that they cannot rely entirely on in-home media to reach and motivate consumers. Recognizing a unique opportunity Big Moving Pictures developed its "Rolling Television Network" which offers advertisers the opportunity to connect effectively with consumers at many extraordinarily well-attended outdoor events. Through its unique alliances with many of the most important air shows that feature the US Navy Blue Angels and US Air Force Thunderbirds jet teams Big Moving Pictures gives millions of attendees unprecedented views inside cockpits and from the pilot's point of view as well as insights into who the pilots are through 90-second "Meet The Team" exclusives. BMP's programming is supported by commercials for major brands that run during intervals in the action.
About Big Moving PicturesBig Moving Pictures is the first company to monetize advertising on outdoor television screens at large events on a national scale. Although superficially similar to the systems of production trucks and outdoor LED screens seen for years at baseball games, NFL, NASCAR and others, BMP applies a new, Silicon Valley-style angle that makes it possible for advertisers to conclusively reach their target consumers, and introduces the ad-based revenue model to large spectator events — this works thanks to BMP's total integration with the event itself — there is no competing 'signal' coming over the sound system or screens that could confuse or distract the audience — in every sense of the word, Big Moving Pictures becomes one with the show.About A&S Media Group and Air & Space Television
