NEWPORT BEACH, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 11, 2006 -- Wi-Fi TV Inc. (PINKSHEETS: WTVN) said today it has achieved a strategic goal in becoming the #1 web site in the world for live Internet TV and live social networking based on the latest results of several independent tracking measurements.

"The upward global trend in key statistics for Wi-Fi TV (www.Wi-FiTV.com), combined with our new marketing programs for channel and subscription sales, give Wi-Fi TV that rare opportunity which we have been striving for over our ten years in business. Wi-Fi TV today is the world market leader in live Internet TV and live Internet social networking. Moreover, we have a plan to translate this market share into growing subscription, pay-per-view, advertising, product sales and channel sales dollars," said Alex Kanakaris, founder of Wi-Fi TV and author of Signs of Intelligent Life on the Internet (www.amazon.com).

According to the leading independent web-tracking site, Alexa.com, www.Wi-FiTV.com has experienced a 268,068 move upward in three months of its traffic rank. Also according to Alexa.com, Wi-Fi TV has experienced a 159% increase in its reach per million users in the past three months.

According to Alexa.com, "The traffic rank is based on three months of aggregated historical traffic data from millions of Alexa Toolbar users and is a combined measure of page views and users (reach). As a first step, Alexa computes the reach and number of page views for all sites on the Web on a daily basis. The main Alexa traffic rank is based on the geometric mean of these two quantities averaged over time (so that the rank of a site reflects both the number of users who visit that site as well as the number of pages on the site viewed by those users). The three-month change is determined by comparing the site's current rank with its rank from three months ago. For example, on July 1, the three-month change would show the difference between the rank based on traffic during the first quarter of the year and the rank based on traffic during the second quarter."

Also, according to Alexa.com, "Reach measures the number of users. Reach is typically expressed as the percentage of all Internet users who visit a given site. So, for example, if a site like yahoo.com has a reach of 28%, this means that if you took random samples of one million Internet users, you would on average find that 280,000 of them visit yahoo.com. Alexa expresses reach as number of users per million. Alexa's one-week and three-month average reach are measures of daily reach, averaged over the specified time period. The reach rank is a ranking of all sites based solely on their reach. The three-month changes are determined by comparing a site's current reach and reach rank with its values from three months ago."

Wi-Fi TV and its Chairman and Founder, Alex Kanakaris, have also generated over 25,000 story-based links in the Google.com search engine.

In addition, the independent NeoTracker reports that visitors from 181 countries have visited the www.Wi-FiTV.com web site as of October 10, 2006.
