CBS Promotes Fall Line Up on Free411
Soon to make "regular" 411 service a thing of the past because of its obscenely high cost specially on mobile services are services like Jingle Networks' 800-FREE411, a 411 service that gives you the number without a charge and occasionally plays an ad prior to giving you the number. Most ads are mercifully short like this collection from CBS which is promoting its fall lineup with the service. Rather than paying as much as $1.50 or more simply to get a phone number, listening to a :10 seems like a very fair exchange. We think these services have legs particularly in a world full of TiVos, ad blockers and cell phones.
