JumpTV Signs Exclusive Partnerships With 100% Noticias, ESTV Canal 11, Telenica Canal 8 and Radio 8

Internet Television Broadcaster to Offer Three of Nicaragua's Top Television Channels and Leading Radio Station on JumpTV.com

TORONTO--(CCNMatthews - December 05, 2006) - JumpTV Inc. (AIM: JTV) (TSX: JTV) (www.jumptv.com), the world's leading broadcaster of ethnic television over the Internet, has signed exclusive Internet-broadcast agreements with three popular Nicaraguan television stations: 100% Noticias, ESTV Canal 11 and Telenica Canal 8. JumpTV will also broadcast Radio 8, a leading FM radio station from the country.

100% Noticias is one of the leading news channels from Nicaragua and the first and only 24-hour news channel from the country.

Telenica Canal 8 is one of the top three overall channels in Nicaragua and specializes in news, sports coverage and general entertainment.

ESTV Canal 11 is a leading general entertainment channel broadcasting the best in local music, theater, fashion and culture.

Kaleil Isaza Tuzman, president and chief executive officer of JumpTV International commented, "These three leading television stations are the first channels to partner with JumpTV from Nicaragua. There is a large Nicaraguan diaspora community thirsting for entertainment from home and news from Managua. In addition to the television offerings, JumpTV will be streaming one of Nicaragua's best radio stations--an example of our strategy to provide diaspora communities 'immersive' media packages."

"Partnering with JumpTV is an exciting venture for 100% Noticias. As the world embraces Internet television, it is important that we are aligned with a distribution partner who thoroughly understands the complexities of broadcasting live television online," said Miguel Mora, chief executive officer of 100% Noticias.

Juan Carlos Estevez, regional director of JumpTV's Latin American group said, "As JumpTV continues to add channels to its Internet television lineup, we are particularly mindful of the millions of Central Americans living in the diaspora. There are over 2 million Nicaraguans living outside of the country, with the large majority residing in Costa Rica, North America, Mexico and Spain. These communities can now turn to JumpTV and access an array of programming from home."

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

100% Noticias, ESTV Canal 11 and Telenica Canal 8 were signed subsequent to the Company's September 30, 2006 quarter end disclosure. JumpTV now has 240 channels under license.
