Jack9 Entertainment Expands Into Major Technology Center and Production Studios

Internet Television Network Will Produce Video Entertainment, Music and Broadcast News

HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA--(Marketwire - December 3, 2007) - Jack9 Entertainment Inc., the leading Internet television network and IPTV entertainment destination, today announced the opening of its new facility, designed to be one of the largest commercial entertainment studios for the production of Internet entertainment and broadcast news. The facility will also serve as a technology center and think-tank for the mobile entertainment and information delivery device, Yippy.

The Huntington Beach-based Jack9 Technology and Entertainment Center will consist of more than 13,000 square-feet of production studios, original content creative offices, and live-broadcast newsrooms. It will also serve as the new headquarters of Jack9-acquired Bukang (BK) Sems, USA, a global provider of high-quality, low-cost electronics.

"We're ready to turn traditional television and music delivery networks upside-down," said Jack9 CEO, Richard Granville. "Major advertisers have accepted that rapid-delivery videos via the Internet and/or wireless networks are the future of broadcast television. The core technology has already been widely adopted and we are developing a variety of unique entertainment that appeals to highly segmented audiences."

BK Sems, USA, best known for pioneering lead-free circuit board assembly, will be the mobile technology component of Jack9's business model. "The Yippy, our UMPC communications device combines wireless telephone, Internet, GPS and lifestyle entertainment into one handheld device," said Keven Kim, CEO of BK Sems, USA. "We will be delivering Jack9 programming into a total communications solution."

"We're simply moving mobile entertainment into the twenty-first century," added James Marcellino, president of Jack9. "Much like conventional television networks, we create original entertainment and deliver it through a network to massive audiences. Jack9's difference is selectivity; the customer's ability to choose advertising, content and wireless services relevant to both location and lifestyle choices."
