CDNetworks is delivering Flash progressive downloads to optimize end-user viewing of the rich content on the SPLASTK website.

Based on the success of this campaign, CDNetworks was awarded the exclusive CDN contract for all of the content on SPLASTK, including serial installments of “Hero by Night,” “Cowboys & Aliens,” and “The Adventures of Mark Grimm.” From October 15 through 24, 2008, the CDNetworks-powered SPLASTK network will feature the advertising campaign in support of the DVD release of this summer’s successful Universal Pictures and Marvel Studios theatrical release of “The Incredible Hulk.”
