(AIM: JTV) (TSX: JTV) (www.jumptv.com), the world's leading broadcaster of ethnic television over the Internet, announced it has signed exclusive Internet-broadcast distribution agreements with four Indian television channels specializing in news, current events, politics and wholesome family entertainment.

Kaleil Isaza Tuzman, president and chief executive officer of JumpTV International stated, "With more than 15 million people of Indian origin living outside of the sub-continent -- more than half of whom live in countries with high-broadband penetration such as the UK, the United States, Canada, the Netherlands and the UAE -- we believe there is a massive global market for these channels."

Vinod Kumar, director in JumpTV's Asia-Pacific group commented, "We are pleased to add such valuable partners as India TV News, Kairali TV, People TV and Amrita TV to JumpTV's growing channel lineup. These channels add a new and diverse level of Indian programming to our strong roster of content which includes Sony Entertainment Television Asia, Punjab Today and Balle Balle, among others."

Each channel will be priced at US$9.95 per month when launched commercially and at a later date will likely make up components of an Indian and/or South Asian bundle.

India TV News (www.indiatvnews.com) is one of the leading 24-hour Hindi news and current affairs channels in the country with programming that includes "Aap Ki Adalat," one of the most influential Indian news television programs.

Kairali TV (www.kairalitv.in) provides programming that captures the arts and culture of the Malayalees and has quickly become a preferred channel among the Malayalam speaking population. Kairali's sibling station, People TV, focuses on news and current issues.
