Players Network Teams up With AGEM to Create Virtual Marketplace

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - December 15, 2008) - Players Network (OTCBB: PNTV), the leading Digital Media 3-Screen Network dedicated to Las Vegas Entertainment and the Gaming Lifestyle, announces today that it has formed a partnership with the Association of Gaming Equipment Manufacturers (AGEM) and launched the "AGEM VIRTUAL MARKETPLACE," an interactive online community for Gaming Industry Manufacturers and Buyers featuring high-definition video content produced by Players Network at this year's G2E, the Global Gaming Expo, in Las Vegas.

These high-quality videos feature in-depth coverage of the latest electronic games and cutting-edge technology from industry leaders such as Bally Technologies, Aristocrat and IGT, and can be viewed at www.AGEM.org by those who may not have been able to attend the convention, or anyone seeking more information about these member companies' products.

This latest partnership with AGEM signals the company's continuing commitment to New Media Production, Distribution, and Marketing. "The Virtual Marketplace is one more example of the power of Product Integration in New Media content to globally expand any company's marketing dollars," says Mark Bradley, CEO of Players Network. "As a full service digital media production and distribution company, Players Network has the unique ability to create original programming that seamlessly integrates a company's brand into videos that are available to millions of people worldwide."

"While the AGEM Virtual Marketplace already features an impressive display of some of the best new games, technology and products from our member companies, I expect the site will grow over time and become a true social and business networking online hub for global gaming suppliers and operators," said Marcus Prater, Executive Director of AGEM.

In addition to its distributing this programming to consumers on television in over 22 million homes in the US, 120 million in Europe, on Broadband and Mobile platforms, thereby motivating players to seek out and request these new machines in casinos, Players Network also delivers Product DVDs for the companies' own websites for their B2B sales.
