Evtv1 Scores Top Ten in Business Week Ranking

MOKENA, IL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 28, 2006 -- Fresh from securing a rating from the 'Chicago Tribune as a top 50 Entertainment Website', Evtv1.com has now earned a top ten ranking in Business Week's rating of websites to enjoy. Evtv1.com CEO, Jaffer Ali stated,

"We are extremely pleased and humbled by Business Week ranking Evtv1 in their top ten sites on the web for entertainment. I think this is a testament to our hardworking staff who find and edit most of the exclusive clips on our site. We have the rights to hundreds of thousands of hours of video, and they do a great job selecting the clips for a wide array of tastes."

Business Week rated Evtv1 number six on their top ten ways to take a break and recharge one's batteries. According to Business Week Online, "On www.Evtv1.com they are showing clips 24/7, from the worst of 'American Idol' performers to 'The Super Bowl Shuffle.' When you lack the energy to read any more text, a quickie movie clip might be just the thing." View the full article and ranking at www.Evtv1.com/press/Businessweek.htm

Ali continued, "The recent publicity we have been getting is exciting since we have not solicited any of it. Our growth in views mirrors our growth in content. The way we are differentiating ourselves from other online video portals is through our exclusive content. That plus our ability to syndicate content to other websites through our Vidsense™ program adds to our growth potential. In addition to Evtv1.com, we are streaming video channels to over 300 other websites that match our video content with their website.

"There are 58 million websites out there, and a good percentage of them want to add video content that matches their site. With 23 different channels and more planned in the near future, we hope to have our content available thousands of websites by year's end."

Evtv1.com has recently undergone a redesign (www.Evtv1.com) and its wholly owned syndication arm, Vidsense™ (www.Vidsense.com), has only just emerged from beta.

Evtv1.com is one of the fastest growing online video portals offering free video clips covering 23 different channels of content. Evtv1 is a completely free service offering streamed video clips with pre-roll advertising. Evtv1 is a subsidiary of NextEra Media.

Vidsense™ is a division of Evtv1 that syndicates video content websites while sharing revenues with those sites. Revenues are mainly derived from pre-roll advertising commercials that run prior to the content playing.
