80% of U.S. Adults Now Go Online as Wi-Fi TV Sells TV Stations Viewable Over the Internet

Access to Internet Approaches 100% of Adult U.S. Population and Wi-Fi TV Moves TV to Dominant Medium

NEWPORT BEACH, CA--(Marketwire - November 6, 2007) - As Wi-Fi TV (PINKSHEETS: WTVN) prepares for the Thursday launch of a newly designed Social Internet TV ™, web site, the number of U.S. adults who go online has reached a phenomenal 80% level.

"The latest statistics on Internet usage in the U.S. show why there is no single more powerful avenue to reach consumers than the Internet, and there is no presence on the Internet that is more compelling than a Wi-Fi TV Station," said Tim Roland, National Sales manager, Wi-Fi TV.

"We are making it affordable for any business to have their own interactive TV station with as little or as much initial content as they want. If they have a webcam or a video camera, they are ready to introduce a larger audience to their products and services," Mr. Roland added.

FOUR OUT OF FIVE U.S. ADULTS GO ONLINE

Four out of five U.S. adults go online now, according to a new Harris Poll.

The survey released today, which polled 2,062 adults in July and October, found that 79 percent of adults -- about 178 million -- go online, spending an average 11 hours a week on the Internet.

"We're up to almost 80 percent of adults who now are online, or are somehow gaining access to the Internet. That's a pretty impressive figure," said Regina Corso, director of the Harris Poll.

The results reflect a steady rise since 2000, when 57 percent of adults polled said they went online. In 2006, the number was 77 percent.

When Harris Interactive, a market research firm, first began tracking online use among adults in 1995, the group found that only nine percent of the population -- or 17.5 million -- said they went online.

The poll also found that adults are spending more time online at home and at work, up two percent each at 72 percent and 37 percent respectively, from 2006. More dramatically, 31 percent of those surveyed said they went online elsewhere, up from 22 percent in 2006.
