Sony BMG yesterday became the latest partner to sign up to provide content to BT's next-generation TV service, BT Vision. Under the deal, videos from artists including Bob Dylan, George Michael, Justin Timberlake and Christina Aguilera, will be available on the BT service, which is due to launch before Christmas.

Clear Channel's fledgling network of digital billboards has signed its first client. Broadcaster BSkyB has booked the nine sites for a two-week trial.

Titan Outdoor has announced Emirates as the launch advertiser on its new backlit poster site, the Clapham Colossus, situated trackside just outside Clapham Junction. The deal was brokered by MediaCom, and Emirates will be the first to take advantage of the 200ft site, one of the biggest in the country.

Associated free paper Metro has created a one-off "green" edition which will be posted with a university clearance mailing to 40,000 new students in London this week. The edition, on 100% recycled paper, includes advice for a greener, more sustainable life.

Target Media has won the account to launch a financial product for exchange bond company Exco, in a deal worth ú100,000. The campaign will consist of internet, outdoor, press and direct mail activity to the property buying public.

Customer magazine publisher Specialist, which runs magazines for the AA and Peugeot, has beaten Square One, Think, Atom and incumbent WordWide to publish dental health group Denplan's magazine, Smileguide.

AdConnection has won the ú500,000 Mark Wilkinson Furniture media planning and buying account. The retailer's business was formerly handled by independent full-service creative marketing agency Superior. Superior will be kept on by the company as the creative agency.

In the last issue of Media Week (26 September - 3 October), the managing director of digital consultancy Decipher was wrongly named as Simon Waller. Decipher's MD is in fact Nigel Walley.
