JumpTV Enters Into Exclusive Partnership With BEC3, Thailand's #1 Channel

JumpTV to Broadcast Leading News, Sports and Entertainment Programming From Thailand

TORONTO--(CCNMatthews - November 10, 2006) - JumpTV Inc. (TSX: JTV) (AIM: JTV) (www.jumptv.com), announced that it has entered into a multi-year agreement with BEC World Public Company Limited to distribute BEC3, Thailand's #1 television channel. BEC3's star-studded and highly rated dramas, news, sports and entertainment programming will be available on a subscription basis through the JumpTV platform, extending the reach of BEC3 programming to the hundreds of thousands of Thai people living in North America.

The contract signing ceremony took place this week at BEC3's Headquarters in Bangkok and a local press conference was held yesterday, November 9, 2006.

BEC3 and JumpTV plan to conduct a tour in early 2007 with some of the channel's top creative talent to North American cities with large Thai populations in order to generate awareness about BEC3's availability on the JumpTV platform.

Kaleil Isaza Tuzman, president and chief executive officer of JumpTV International said, "JumpTV's partnership with BEC is another milestone on the path we have set out for ourselves: to provide the highest quality programming to diaspora communities around the world. BEC3 is not currently available through cable or DTH providers in North America. With this agreement, Thai emigrants and second generation immigrants in cities like Los Angeles, Houston and Philadelphia will now have online access to the best in Thai entertainment."

"JumpTV is driving innovation in a sector that will change the way we view television; by partnering with JumpTV and making our content available online, we are taking a significant step forward as a participant in the evolution of television," commented Mr. Nopphadol Khemayotin, vice president of business development and investment for BEC World Public Company Limited.

Kevin Foong, general manager of JumpTV's Asia Pacific group stated, "This relationship mutually benefits both BEC and JumpTV as it furthers our goal to expand offerings to our Asian subscribers, and it extends BEC3's viewership reach."

BEC3 will be sold on a stand-alone basis when launched commercially and will likely become part of a future bundle of Thai channels on the JumpTV platform. The BEC World Public Company Limited contract was signed subsequent to the Company's September 30, 2006 quarter end disclosure. JumpTV now has 234 channels under license.
