Abu Dhabi Media Company also announced a partnership with Sony BMG, in which the record label will provide local and Arabic content for the platform, which can be accessed via PC or mobile.

Getmo Arabia is set to service the 33 million internet users and 80 million mobile phone users in the Middle East region.

    It’s either I’m stupid or the site is the stupid, I’m trying to visit getmo since yesterday but none of my web browsers could get me in, Mozilla Firefox says “The page isn’t redirecting properly” so I thought it will work with IE, I have IE 6.0 but that too didn’t work, anyway I used a proxy and finally could take a look.

    @Mamod: Actually, I think it is accessible for some people. As for me, I too am still getting that redirect loop problem.
