Public Media Works Plans to Expand DVD Kiosk Footprint Into Vancouver, B.C. and San Diego Markets

Expansion Plan in Full Stride After Successful Conclusion of Operations Test in Riverside County, CA

SAUSALITO, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 20, 2011) - Public Media Works, Inc. (OTCBB: PUBM), operating under the consumer brand Spot. The Difference™, announced today that it has reached agreements to expand into the highly attractive metropolitan areas of Vancouver, B.C. and San Diego, CA. The announcement marks the first wave of planned expansion after the recently completed successful test in 25 Riverside County, CA locations.

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's research of potential new markets indicated that both Vancouver and San Diego were under-served for automated DVD rental. They then moved quickly to meet with top retailers to secure the best possible placements. "Using our deep industry knowledge, our sales team has done a phenomenal job of identifying these markets, then quickly negotiating agreements that will allow us to deploy these locations as early as this fall," remarked Greg Waring, President and Chief Operating Officer of Public Media Works. "We're very fortunate to be able to soon partner with top tier retailers including 7-11 franchisees in the San Diego area."

Further details on the launches will be available shortly, including a full listing of locations, special pricing for the Canadian market, and additional customer features designed to further enhance the Spot competitive advantage.

More information is available at, including a full listing of locations and registration for weekly customer e-mails.
