NeuLion Opens the New Year With Big Wins in College Sector

George Mason University and Southern Utah Launch New and Improved Digital Services

PLAINVIEW, NY--(Marketwire - January 12, 2011) - Off to a fast start in 2011, technology leader NeuLion, Inc. (TSX: NLN) (the "Company") announces the addition of George Mason University to its family of nearly 200 collegiate partnerships and an upgraded digital service offering to Southern Utah University.

Previously a CBS College Sports client, George Mason University is now using NeuLion for its live game video portal, web publishing services and mobile WAP site. Encompassing website development, implementation, and audio and video streaming, this partnership will enable George Mason University to reach its fans, alumni and passionate school community through an enhanced service. The school can take full advantage of advertising and multi-platform marketing initiatives, website and new media strategies. In addition, it expands NeuLion's presence in the Colonial Athletic Association to now include seven out of 12 schools plus the conference website. 

Southern Utah University has also expanded its partnership with NeuLion through a multi-year agreement for website publishing services as well as for NeuLion's donor management and guest management platform. These tools will enable Southern Utah University to manage their fundraising campaigns and event admissions through the same database that drives their Official Athletic Site. 

"Our platform continues to help colleges further build their digital presence for their athletic program, positively impacting both school administrators and the fans. NeuLion has seen firsthand the increase in revenue that can be obtained very quickly when fans are given additional touch points with their school," said Chris Wagner, Executive Vice President of NeuLion. 

NeuLion expects to soon roll out services for a number of other college properties. To learn more visit www.neulion.com
