Internet Broadcast Television Network to Introduce New On-Demand Section, "The Strip," With Latest Concert Performance by Top Las Vegas Entertainer Zowie Bowie to Global Internet Audience

LAS VEGAS, NV -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 17, 2007 --Watchit Media, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: WMDA), a leader in news, information and entertainment presented for digital media platforms, today announced the signing of an agreement to produce and present Las Vegas top lounge entertainer, Zowie Bowie, to global internet audiences on www.watchitvegas.com. The company also announced that Zowie Bowie will be the first feature on its soon-to-be-completed video-on-demand section called "The Strip." "The Strip" will present Las Vegas entertainers, acts and theatrical productions in their entirety giving Watchit's audience a true showroom experience. Terms of the agreement with Zowie Bowie Entertainment were not disclosed.

"Zowie Bowie is one of the most exciting and versatile entertainment experiences you'll ever see," stated James Lavelle, Watchit's Chairman and CEO. "Their talent is expansive. They perform the old standards you used to see performed in Las Vegas showrooms with a style and grace of the great performers. Their love of 'Old Vegas' is evident in every song they perform in the set. Then, after evoking the feelings of the old, they return to the stage backed by a six-piece band that rocks the house!" Lavelle added, "Our goal is to introduce Zowie Bowie's incredible show and talent to the global Internet audience for the first time so they too can share the excitement of Las Vegas' top lounge entertainers."

Watchit Entertainment, Inc., a division of Watchit Media, Inc., produced Zowie Bowie's latest concert performance as a feature presentation for www.watchitvegas.com's new on-demand section called "The Strip." "'The Strip' will bring the thrill of the experience of watching and hearing top Las Vegas entertainers and theatrical presentations in their entirety as a showroom experience to our viewers," said Leon Quenneville, Watchit's Executive Producer. "For those who have visited Las Vegas and seen shows here, we expect they'll be refreshed by being able to experience something similar in their own home on their own television. But for those who may never have the opportunity to see a live Las Vegas show, we think 'The Strip' will be an entertainment experience unlike anything else they will see on Internet broadcast television or conventional television programming."

Watchit plans to introduce "The Strip" on May 1, 2007 and the company's goal is to have as many as 20 unique Las Vegas-based entertainers and theatrical performances available for viewing by June 30, 2007.
