New VOD & Broadband Kids TV Network Offers a 'Kabillion' Choices

New "Kabillion" Children's Network Allows Viewers to Access Top Notch Kids Television Programming 24/7

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 16, 2007 -- Taffy Entertainment announced today the launch of Kabillion, a new multi-platform, kids' program service, available both as a free online broadband site ( and a free video on-demand (VOD) channel. The new service, developed in conjunction with REMIX Entertainment Ventures, offers high-quality animated and live-action kids' series entertainment on both the online and VOD platforms. The VOD platform is now available to digital cable subscribers nationwide on Comcast Cable systems, with additional systems to be added in the near future. Future plans also call for offering mobile, gaming and wireless platforms.

Kabillion's initial programming lineup includes a variety of options, in keeping with the channel's "On Demand/Viewer's Choice" philosophy. From the CGI comedy hit "Pet Alien," to anime trading card-themed "Mix Master: King of Cards" -- all exciting, original, high quality series. The On-Demand channel will allow viewers to choose the episodes they want, when they want it and in some cases, the language they want, as Kabillion will offer multi-lingual versions of many titles.

Instead of being designed from a traditional linear programming service perspective, Kabillion has been conceived and developed around the role that emerging digital media is playing in the lives of kids. To help guide viewers through the new service, Kabillion will also offer "Kablab," a comedic, live-action Preview show, intended to not only entertain, but to inform kids about some of the other available programming and content choices.

"Kabillion will transform how kids experience media, allowing them to engage in a more interactive and dynamic way, across a range of platforms. Taffy Entertainment will supply first class, award-winning programming through its global production pipelines at both Moonscoop and Mike Young Productions," explains Bill Schultz, co-CEO at Taffy Entertainment, "Key acquisitions will also play an important role and we anticipate some important announcements to that effect very soon."

The network is advertiser-supported and already has signed key sponsors. Its unique format and messaging opportunities appeals to many of the industry's frustrated kids' marketers. Through viral and integrated creative media, the network's sponsors will be able to reach kids while keeping up with the realities of today's audiences' viewing habits. Kabillion's unique infra-structure will transform traditional approaches to advertising with the innovation that is currently sweeping the older demographic's advertising models. Sponsors will have the opportunity to experiment within a fully-vetted COPPA and CARU-compliant environment. Kabillion's commitment to adhering to these guidelines and policies offers both sponsors and parents peace of mind. The broadband site will offer a robust online experience with the benefit of full safety for the under-12 demographic.
