NEOPLANET AND PHOENIX COYOTES BREAKOUT CD FEATURING FIRST COYOTES SCREENSAVER AND OTHER EXCLUSIVES
PHOENIX, Jan. 16, 2001 - NeoPlanet, Inc. (www.neoplanet.com) and the Phoenix Coyotes invite fans to get into the game with the 2000/01 Phoenix Coyotes CD, featuring such exclusive items as the first Coyotes screensaver, a highlight video from the first half of the 2000/01 season and e-player cards.
The CD will debut Jan. 21, as thousands are given away to fans when the Coyotes host the Dallas Stars at America West Arena. Concourse displays with CD giveaways are slated for March 2 and 14.
Also featured on the CD are printable player coloring pages for kids, the introduction video shown at home games and a host of other video highlights, including a "White Out" video and a video summarizing the Coyotes' first four years in the Valley.
"The Coyotes are excited to partner for the second year with NeoPlanet, one of the Valley's leading software developers," said Shawn Hunter, president of the Phoenix Coyotes. "We are pleased to provide our season ticket holders and fans across the Valley and country with such a fun way to interact online and learn more about the team through exclusive videos, trading cards and other unique features."
The official Coyotes browser is also available on the CD for free download. The Coyotes browser, a customizable version of NeoPlanet's enhanced browser, is designed for Coyotes fans, allowing fans to personalize their Web browsing experience.
The collaboration between NeoPlanet and the Phoenix Coyotes began last season, naming NeoPlanet as "The Official Browser of the Phoenix Coyotes." The Coyotes browser, the cornerstone of the partnership, marked the first official Web browser created for a professional sports team.
"The new Coyotes CD contains rich content that's relevant to Coyotes fans, and it's a fun tool for fans to customize their desktop canvas," said Drew Cohen, NeoPlanet president and CEO. "Our partnership with the Coyotes extends beyond the dasherboard ads you see at the arena - we're collaborating with the Coyotes to help reach-out-and-touch their online fan base."
The 2000/01 Phoenix Coyotes CD supports Windows 95/98/2000/ME/NT and works with any Internet service provider.
