Public Media Works Concludes Operations Test as Kiosk Solution Is Tweaked for Scalability

Focus Now Shifts to Location Selection and Active Marketing of Service

SAUSALITO, CA--(Marketwire - May 18, 2011) - Public Media Works, Inc. (OTCBB: PUBM), operating under the consumer brand Spot. The difference™, announced today that it has successfully completed the operational test of their first 25 kiosks at high traffic outdoor locations in Riverside County, California, and are now preparing for their next round of deployments.

Launched in mid-March, the initial deployment of 25 outdoor kiosks marked several industry firsts in the rapidly growing entertainment kiosk space, including parity pricing for DVD and Blu-Ray discs, and discounts for customers who rent more than one disc at a time. The company, along with their kiosk supplier, has spent the last 60 days rigorously testing and de-bugging the state of the art technology.

"We took a bold but calculated risk launching the next generation of entertainment kiosks," remarked Greg Waring, President and Chief Operating Officer of Public Media Works. "Our kiosk technology is 5 years ahead of anything in the market, and as such we took the necessary time to ensure we worked out every possible kink." Based on the learning gathered over the last 60 days, the company has made the necessary modifications to the existing hardware and software, while quickly preparing the next set of locations for deployment. In addition, several upgrades to the customer solution are in development that will further reinforce Spot's leadership position.
