Zip.ca Welcomes New High Def Advances

Leading online video service to carry Warner Bros. Total Hi Def titles

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 12, 2007) - Zip.ca (www.zip.ca), Canada's leading online video service, will further expand its DVD library to include the new dual format high definition disc announced this week at the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

"Many consumers are concerned about investing in high definition players and discs which may quickly become obsolete, said Rick Anderson, President & CEO of Zip.ca. "The announcements by Warner Home Video and LG Electronics, are welcome steps in alleviating these concerns."

Warner Home Video unveiled its new dual format "Total Hi Def" disc, a dual sided DVD that plays HD DVD on one side and Blu-ray on the other. LG Electronics launched the industry's first dual format disc player, the "Super Multi Blue" Player, capable of playing both high def DVD formats.

"Zip.ca's role is to provide consumers with ALL titles, in every disc format as we do with all high def discs released in HD DVD, Blu-ray and the new Total Hi Def approach. Consumers are interested in high definition home video, and we'll be here to provide it for them," said Anderson.
