UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. October 29, 2010 - NBC Universal Digital Entertainment, NBC Universal Digital Sales and Dove(R), the leading personal care brand, formally announce the formation of a new mobile entertainment portal for women - Dove Good2Go.

During the year long partnership Good2Go introduces a wide scope of integrated marketing platforms that includes a robust mobile entertainment experience with customized digital content from NBC.com, oxygen.com, bravotv.com, accesshollywood.com and iVillage.
