JumpTV to Broadcast Frecuencia Latina Live Over the Internet

Internet Television Broadcaster Partners With One of Peru's Most Popular Channels

TORONTO--(CCNMatthews - December 27, 2006) - JumpTV Inc. (AIM: JTV) (TSX: JTV) (www.JumpTV.com), the world's leading broadcaster of ethnic television over the Internet, has signed an exclusive Internet-broadcast agreement with Frecuencia Latina, one of Peru's top two national television channels.

Frecuencia Latina is a general entertainment channel best known for its original program lineup, including "El Francotirador," one of the highest rated television programs in the country, hosted by the renowned writer and TV host, Jaime Bayly.

JumpTV will offer the channel on an a la carte basis for US$9.95 per month and will also include Frecuencia Latina in the company's popular bundle of Peruvian channels for US$16.95 per month, when launched commercially. The bundle provides subscribers access to a well-rounded mix of popular Peruvian programming from premier channels including America TV and Red Panamericana.

"We believe that Internet is a vital platform for our content, as there are millions of people of Peruvian descent living in communities throughout the world that want access to their favorite programming from home," said Alberto Cabello, chief executive officer of Frecuencia Latina. "JumpTV's easy-to-use platform and marketing capabilities were an integral part of the decision-making process when choosing the right Internet television provider to broadcast our content."

Kaleil Isaza Tuzman, president and chief executive officer of JumpTV International commented, "JumpTV is committed to our strategy of providing compelling country and regional channel 'bundles' for specific diaspora communities. With the addition of Frecuencia Latina, one of Peru's leading national channels, we are not only strengthening our Peruvian offering, but also our Latin American lineup in general."

"Frecuencia Latina is a wonderful addition to JumpTV's Peruvian lineup," said Juan Carlos Estevez, regional director of JumpTV's Latin American and Caribbean operations. "We are confident that the channel's celebrated, original programming will drive subscribers to JumpTV.com to access shows that keep them informed, entertained and connected to home. Partnering with Frecuencia Latina is further validation that both channels and subscribers are eager to join our online viewing community."

Frecuencia Latina was signed subsequent to the Company's September 30, 2006 quarter end disclosure. JumpTV now has 241 channels under license.
