Edmunds.com Selects Tubes for Automotive-Related Multimedia Content Distribution Platform

Online Automotive Information Resource to Make Content Available on Tubes Hub

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - September 25, 2007) - DEMO -- Tubes Networks today announced that Edmunds.com, the premier online resource for automotive information, has selected Tubes™ as its platform for enhanced multimedia content distribution and online community development. In addition, Edmunds.com will make exclusive multimedia content available on the recently launched Tubes Hub.

"We expect that Tubes will allow us to create rich connections beyond the web directly to the desktop to foster the adoption of our content throughout social networks," said Craig Atkins, product manager of media properties for Edmunds.com. "This version of Tubes makes significant strides as a true Web 2.0 application and allows end users to not only consume Edmunds.com and Edmunds' Inside Line content but also create their own social networks using our branded content."

"I am very pleased that Edmunds.com has selected Tubes to enhance their communication and connection with their online communities," said John Van Siclen, chief executive officer of Tubes. "The Tubes network is an ideal platform for premium content providers like Edmunds to easily distribute and market content right to the desktops of their best customers, building tighter connections, increasing frequency of use and promoting viral word-of-mouth social sharing to take place around branded content. I look forward to having a number of tubes published by Edmunds over the weeks ahead."

Edmunds selected Tubes because no other system has the capability to provide a seamless experience both on and off the web, or can support the level of application management, security and range of content controls that Tubes provides. Tubes offers speedy convenience in a powerful yet easy to use package. It features RSS-style syndication and social networking supported by an infrastructure that allows one-to-one, and one-to-many, file sharing and collaboration.

Edmunds will promote their tubes both on their Edmunds.com properties as well as on the Tubes Hub. The Tubes Hub is a new service for Tubes that allows users and professionals to obtain and publish rich media content online instantly. The Hub aggregates both professional and user-generated content, making it ideal for web-based access to free music, photos, video and other content.
