SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH--(Marketwire - April 29, 2008) - Broadband Learning Corporation ("Broadband Learning") (TSX VENTURE:BLC), a participant in the rapidly expanding distance learning market, today reported its audited financial results for the 12 months ended December 31, 2007 and its unaudited financial results for the three months ended December 31, 2007.

Revenues for the twelve months of 2007 have not significantly increased over 2006, reflecting the fact that over the greater portion of 2007 the Company's full efforts have been focused on entering into its previously announced business relationship with i-vu, and executing the initial roll-out phase of installation of the i-vu systems. The Company and i-vu have agreed to install systems that will allow advertising content to be delivered on 7,000 screens during the first half of 2008. At year end, 2,202 screens were installed. As of today's date, the 7,000 screen milestone has been met. Although very substantial efforts and costs have been invested in this project, revenue recognition criteria are not expected to be met until the 2008 fiscal year. This impact has been particularly pronounced in fourth quarter revenues.

Operating loss and net loss for the three and twelve month periods in 2006 both increased significantly from 2006 primarily because very substantial efforts and costs have been invested in the i-vu project, while revenues are not expected to commence until the 2008 fiscal year.

"Once the i-vu systems installations have become established, BLC expects to return more of its attention to pursuing opportunities and sales in its more traditional areas of distance learning" said John Yarnell, Chairman of Broadband Learning.

Bob Dameron, CEO, added, "with the signing of a Definitive Collaboration Agreement with i-vu in early 2008, the Company believes its outlook has improved markedly with the prospect of significant recurring revenue through its share in the i-vu system's advertising revenue base. We are very pleased to have fulfilled our initial system installation commitments and look forward to revenues starting to flow from the i-vu side of the project."
