The Directors of Command Technology Plc are pleased to announce that it has signed a partnership
agreement with WIN plc, a leading provider of interactive mobile entertainment and information
services, to jointly deliver interactive 3G video services to mobile phones.

The first exclusive joint video service Playview3G, available now, allows users on a 3G handset
across any network to watch live streamed casino style mobile TV and place a bet on the game in
realtime without a break from the video stream.

Playview3G builds on existing online and TV betting applications where users watch a TV channel
with the option to bet using their home phone.

Graham Rivers, CEO of WIN commented, "Consumers are expecting more from 3G video. Playview3G is a
pivotal video service for the betting and gaming sector, enabling users of 3G handsets the freedom
to watch TV and bet when they are away from their TVs."

"By partnering with a leading technology provider such as Command Technology Group, we look
forward to delivering a raft of compelling services that offer something unique and new to users,"
concludes Rivers.

The new medium provides broadcasters, internet providers and content owners a new platform for
interaction with customers as well as a reliable video and audio stream to deliver content to
consumers. Users have instant access to security protected account information with a single call
to an automated voice account at no added cost.

"Seamless, real-time interactive video services is the catalyst that will drive the uptake of 3G
calling by offering an enriched user experience on the move to over 10 million potential customers
using 3G networks," says Mick Gossage Operations Director at CTG. "Playview3G will drive data
revenues for operators and add value to stakeholders and advertisers, as well as consumers."
