DVD.TV Chooses Muze Media Information to Power Next-Generation Entertainment Auction Site

Comprehensive Media Information and Streaming Video Bring Social Network Excitement to Online Auctions

NEW YORK, NY and SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - December 18, 2007) - Muze Inc., a world leader in enabling entertainment commerce, today announced that DVD.TV (www.dvd.tv), an online auction service for entertainment media products, has selected Muze to provide essential media information databases on music, film, games, and streaming movie trailers for their new online auction website.

DVD.TV is a unique "live" online auction site specializing in movies, music, and games. Auctions remain "live" for as long as bidding is in play, adding urgency and excitement to the process. A social networking component aims to build communities within the site, making the buying and selling of entertainment media more exciting and engaging, and adding to the site's overall attractiveness to users.

"DVD.TV will take entertainment to the next level. The addition of DVD.TV's social networking component will fundamentally change the online auction landscape," says Jared Langleben, CEO of DVD.TV. He added, "Utilizing Muze's search and discovery databases will help our user base to buy and sell entertainment products, as well as helping them to make meaningful connections with both people and communities who share similar interests and passions. With years of industry expertise and an extensive catalog of media information, we knew that Muze could help us to get our site up and running quickly and with content that would be attractive and meaningful to our target audience."

The breadth and quality of the Muze media information databases is just one of the reasons why DVD.TV (www.dvd.tv) turned to Muze to provide search and discovery tools for their online commerce initiatives. DVD.TV has licensed MuzeVideo™, MuzeMusic™, MuzeGames™, and MuzeReels™ databases to enhance the site's appeal to both buyers and sellers, and to improve the marketability of merchandise sold through DVD.TV's auction site. With Muze media information, sellers can pre-populate their entertainment media auctions with Muze data, images, and movie trailers.

"As the popularity of consumer-oriented online auctions and exchanges grows, service providers must be able to differentiate their site with value-add products which attract and engage users," said Janice P. Anderson, CEO of Muze. "We're pleased to provide DVD.TV and its users the deep media information and rich multimedia they require to more effectively buy and sell digital entertainment products."
