RMD Entertainment Group to Launch National Direct Sale Ringtone Sales Program With 5 Roc Monee Tones

All Mobile Carriers Will Be Part of a Program Supported by Cable Commercials to Drive Sales

PHILADELPHIA, PA--(Marketwire - October 25, 2007) - RMD ENTERTAINMENT GROUP, INC. (PINKSHEETS: RMDM), a Music and Entertainment Company focused on the development and marketing of "Urban Media Content" worldwide, today announced the rollout of marketing ringtones direct to the consumer.

RMD is in the final stages of being certified through an associate company to sell ringtones directly through all major carriers directly. The carriers include but are not limited to Sprint, Verizon, T-Mobile, Virgin, Dobson, Boost, Nextel, and Midwest Wireless. The certification is scheduled to be completed within 14 days and the initial market launch will coincide with certification.

Hip Hop related ringtones accounted for two billion dollars in revenue World-Wide last year and that number is expected to double by the end of 2007. This year, sales surpassed the 2006 mark by the end of July.

RMD is currently producing a 30-second television commercial for 5 tones they will bring to market for initial launch. Roc Monee will be the artist that is released first and one of the tones available will be OOOOOP! the Hip Hop Party Anthem which generated tremendous excitement during his US tour with Platinum selling artists, the Ying Yang Twins. Cable ads will be rolled out on a regional basis beginning in NJ, DE, and PA where Roc has a strong regional following.

"Digital distribution of content is where the business is today," says Giorgio Costonis, CEO of RMDM. "CD sales are down 45% this year alone while the ringtone business is exploding world-wide. We are excited about being able to compete in this market space directly because it allowed us to see more profits per unit, realize payment more quickly, and control our marketing destiny. We will be monitoring this initial launch very carefully as we see this potentially being a brand new book of business with RMDM where we can bring in additional music content from other sources and drive significant revenue through ringtone sales."
