TORONTO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 9, 2007 -- Orbit E-Commerce Inc. ("OECI"), (OTCBB: OECI) and its major shareholder, PureNet.Tv Canada Inc. ("PureNet"), announced today that the system design has been completed and equipment required to deploy the Company's first IPTV facility in China is now being assembled and tested in Toronto.

As previously disclosed, over the past three years, OECI and PureNet ("the Company") have worked closely with the world's most innovative technology companies to develop advanced Internet Protocol Television ("IPTV") networks. The vendors selected for its IPTV deployment in China will enable the Company to build a high quality digital IPTV network capable of serving millions of subscribers.

These vendors were selected by the Company based on such factors as the performance, scalability and technical support of OECI's China project.

The final testing of the digital system in the coming weeks will take place in Toronto where the Company and its vendors will have assembled a working IPTV head-end. The replica of the IPTV head-end will be delivered to China where the Company will commence offering digital video IP services.

The Company's management team is currently in China preparing for the instillation and deployment of IPTV services. This includes ensuring that the physical premises for the head-end equipment are ready and network operations personnel and other staff are in place.

Douglas C. Lloyd, President and CEO stated, "That the opportunity to deploy the IPTV services in China with our recently announced partner in one of the largest markets in the world will allow the consumers in China to experience a fully digital video and internet services where there are no digital cable television or satellite services available.
