Real Estate Video On Demand Network Begins Testing to Go Live

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwire - Sep 19, 2011) - Next 1 Interactive, Inc. (OTCBB: NXOI) announces today, that in addition to the 9/26/11 re-launch of our RRTV Network, the 24 hour Travel & Home Network distributed via Satellite, Next 1 in combination with RealBiz Media, is scheduled to launch Home Tour Network Video On Demand (VOD) distribution on Cable starting October 3, 2011.

Home Tour Network VOD is similar in technology to the widely known On Demand Movie feature, available on most Cable platforms. However, instead of full length movies, consumers will be able to view 15-20 second videos featuring the inside & outside views of homes for sale in the local area from the comfort of their home, via their Cable TV provider.

In preparation of going live with its Home Tour Network VOD Platform, RealBiz Media has begun processing and ingesting Real Estate listing videos for Los Angeles and Washington, D.C. The technical testing will take approximately two weeks and we anticipate going live in these two markets on October 3rd, 2011.

The Company's initial financial model includes approximately 1,000 residential listings in each city, with a $35 and up per month cost to Realtors determined based upon the demand and availability in each individual city available on the Cable platform, for showcasing 15-20 second property listing videos.

The Company anticipates the majority of video listing slots to be purchased by large Real Estate companies. However, any remaining video listing inventory available will be filled with home listings by working with local real estate brokers. The remaining listings will entitle the company to additional revenue such as referral fees and commissions on sales of properties viewed and purchased through the Home Tour Network VOD.

The Company plans to roll out an additional 3 cities during the month of October and will ultimately target 100 cities by the end of 2012.

"It's gratifying to see the start of revenue on this program after years of work and investment," says Bill Kerby, CEO of Next 1 Interactive.
