Knightscove Media Corp.'s Distribution Arm Acquires Rights to Highly Acclaimed Nature Title, Partners With Questar for Release as Christmas Sales Increase

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 7, 2010) - Knightscove Media Corp. (TSX VENTURE:KC.A)(TSX VENTURE:KC.B) ("Knightscove") is pleased to announce that its distribution arm, in partnership with Questar, a leading supplier of nature programming, has acquired the North American rights to "EARTH FROM ABOVE" - a boxed-set nature series along the lines of BBC's popular "PLANET EARTH" and Disney's "NATURE EARTH".

"EARTH FROM ABOVE" stems from the photographic exhibition by French photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand which first opened in Paris in 2000. The DVD of EARTH FROM ABOVE enables the viewer to immerse themselves in the beauty and wonder of our world from above – inviting them to reflect on the changes taking place on our planet.

"EARTH FROM ABOVE" was previously released in PAL format in Australia with a running time of 120 minutes. However, Knightscove's boxed-set will run nearly 400 minutes, providing audiences with a never before seen look at the series. The series will be released to both US and Canadian markets in Spring 2011.

Additionally, there has been a robust increase in holiday sales across-the-board, with the 1951 Christmas classic "A CHRISTMAS CAROL" leading the pack, and showing consistently strong sales figures. This is the second year Knightscove is offering the title in both DVD and BluRay formats.

The TSX Venture Exchange has not reviewed and does not accept responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release or the information contained herein.
