Zip.ca to Give Away a Decade of Free Movies for ZipList Number 10 Million

- Lucky member to win $4000 prize -

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 25, 2007) - Zip.ca (www.zip.ca), Canada's leading online video service, is offering a decade of free movies in a prize package worth $4,000 for the lucky member who ZipLists the 10 millionth title on Zip.ca.

To celebrate the upcoming ZipList milestone, expected to be reached sometime before early March, Zip.ca has put a public counter on its site and is awarding a 10 year Zip.ca membership and a $1,000 Best Buy gift certificate to the member who ZipLists the 10 millionth title. Visitors to the Zip.ca website can watch the live counter to see the progress to 10 million. (This counter, however, will disappear from public view 24 hours before the milestone is reached.)

"10 million ZipList requests is a great milestone," said Rick Anderson, President and CEO of Zip.ca. "Zip.ca has come a long way in the three years since our launch on February 11, 2004, and we want to share our excitement with our members - whose enthusiastic endorsement of online DVD rentals has made it all possible. We're happy to be providing Canadians with the films they want to see - and some member is going to win the chance to enjoy that for free for a decade."

"These 10 million selections cover the gamut of films, reaching deep into Zip.ca's broadest-and-deepest library of DVDs available anywhere in Canada. We offer films in every category: blockbusters, action/adventure, comedy, drama, TV series, romance, classics, anime, foreign, Bollywood, westerns, horror, thrillers, music videos, indies, festivals, documentaries, animation ....you name it," said Anderson. "The 53,676 titles we offer for rent today - and which will soon be accessed for the 10 millionth time - are a tribute to the depth and diversity of our members' tastes. Most of these titles can't be rented anywhere else in Canada: our library is ten times that of what you'll typically find in traditional video stores."
