190-Point Wi-Fi TV™ Plan Follows Up on Vision First Discussed on TV With Vinton Cerf

NEWPORT BEACH, CA--(Marketwire - January 24, 2008) - Wi-Fi TV Inc. (PINKSHEETS: WTVN) has embarked on the completion of a 190-point plan to prepare its web site, www.Wi-FiTV.com, for global expansion. Wi-Fi TV today announced highlights of this plan to make Social Internet TV™ a powerful home and office multimedia center for consumers around the world.

Wi-Fi TV's plan is based on a vision that Wi-Fi TV's founder shared with Vinton Cerf, a founding father of the Internet, in nationally televised appearances several years ago.

"We had the idea of taking one piece of content -- including TV shows, movies, music and books -- and storing it digitally and then replicating it as few or as many times as the market demanded, and doing it wherever there was an Internet connection. It is an idea whose time has now come, and we have a new opportunity to take it global with the company we founded in 1995, Wi-Fi TV Inc. (formerly Kanakaris Communications Inc.)," said Alex Kanakaris, Chairman, Wi-Fi TV Inc.

"From China to Europe to the United States and beyond, the timing is now right for interactive TV with live chat, virtual phone calls, video and audio party rooms and board rooms, and a web site with all your favorite Topics and Countries. You can enjoy Wi-Fi TV, Social Internet TV, right now at www.Wi-FiTV.com. In the next few months, with the implementation of our comprehensive development plan, we are ready for the world.

"As we showed at the 75th PGA Merchandise Show last week in Orlando, Florida, businesses are ready to buy Wi-Fi TV Stations and take their marketplace on to global interactive TV with shopping cart and live customer interaction.

"And as we saw with Wi-Fi TV's live eight-camera feed from Times Square on New Year's Eve, the world of consumers loves TV that is live, uninterrupted, and not reprogrammed to fit local time zones at the whim of traditional media. When we displayed in late 2007 at BIRTV in Beijing, China, we were the center of media attention," Mr. Kanakaris concluded.

Areas being further developed by Wi-Fi TV Inc. in its plan include:

* Log In simplification
* Station owner admin controls
* One Web World
* Video Party Rooms
* Board Room
* My Control Room
* Shopping
* Video Advertising
* Wi-Fi TV Mobile
* eBooks
* Ticker Tape
