JumpTV Signs Exclusive Partnership With the # 1 Television Channel in Sierra Leone

Leading Internet Television Broadcaster Expands Selection of Sub-Saharan African Content With Addition of Sierra Leone Broadcasting Service

TORONTO--(CCNMatthews - November 13, 2006) - JumpTV Inc. (AIM: JTV) (TSX: JTV) (www.jumptv.com), the world's leading broadcaster of ethnic television over the Internet, announced it has signed an exclusive Internet-broadcast agreement with the Sierra Leone Broadcasting Service (SLBS) from the Republic of Sierra Leone.

SLBS is the # 1 channel in Sierra Leone, airing television programming that includes local news, movies, documentaries and talk shows.

Douglas Ames, vice president of JumpTV's Africa group commented, "This partnership is the first time SLBS will be offered outside of the country, creating a conduit for the approximately 1.5 million Sierra Leoneans living in the diaspora, the majority of whom currently reside in London, Toronto and New York, to stay connected to their homeland."

Kashore Wellington, director general of Sierra Leone Broadcasting Service said "JumpTV is a pioneer in providing ethnic television over the Internet and is an ideal partner to help SBLS reach Sierra Leoneans living outside of their native land."

Kaleil Isaza, president and chief executive officer of JumpTV International stated, "JumpTV's proven technology provides channel partners like SLBS the means to reach a larger audience, increase revenues and establish a global media brand."

Isaza continued "JumpTV now boasts over 10 leading channels from sub-Saharan Africa, many of which are not carried by cable and satellite providers outside of Africa."

SLBS will be individually priced at US$9.95 per month when launched commercially and will likely be part of a bundle of African channels at a later date.

The Sierra Leone Broadcasting Service contract was signed subsequent to the Company's September 30, 2006 quarter end disclosure. JumpTV now has 235 channels under license.
