JumpTV Reports 86,000 Subscribers as of September 30, 2007

TORONTO--(Marketwire - October 10, 2007) - JumpTV Inc. (AIM: JTV) (TSX: JTV), a leader in broadcasting international television and sports over the Internet, announced that the Company had approximately 86,000 paying subscribers as of September 30, 2007.

Paid subscribers have increased approximately 19% compared to 72,000 paying subscribers reported on a pro forma basis on August 9, 2007, when the Company announced the acquisition of Cycling TV.

The third quarter ended with a record level of subscribers for both JumpTV's International division, consisting of approximately 300 television channels from more than 75 countries, and its JumpTV Sports division which consists of approximately 175 sporting content partners.

In the United States, the Company offers approximately 120 of its 300 television channels and selected content from its sports content partners on a free-to-consumer, ad-supported basis with the balance of the content being offered on a subscription basis.

Outside of the United States, all of JumpTV's offerings are on a subscription or pay-per-view basis.

In 2007, JumpTV expects to stream more than 10,000 live sporting events and provides subscriptions to viewers in more than 100 countries around the world to its sports, news and entertainment content on a live, pay-per-view and/or video-on-demand basis.

G. Scott Paterson, chairman and chief executive officer, said, "JumpTV ended the third quarter with our best month ever in September on all fronts. Our strategy to anchor our content with a sports theme, followed by news and entertainment is taking shape.

"Importantly, we have broadened our capabilities to offer our content providers a suite of value-added services to optimize their assets online.

"In addition to our subscriber growth, we are making important strides with free-to-consumer, ad-supported content in the United States."

The Company notes that it may not achieve the same level of growth in subscribers in the current period due to multiple factors including seasonality.
