ReelTime Rentals Announces Joint Venture With Laguna Productions

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - March 14, 2008) - ReelTime Rentals, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: RLTR) announced today that the company has entered into a joint venture with Laguna Productions to form a broadband-delivered Spanish language television and movie network in the US. The co-branded site will include an initial library of approximately 200 films to be continually augmented by Laguna, and will be marketed to the online Latino community, well-known as a highly progressive demographic. According to a recent study by Telemundo, online U.S. Hispanics are highly experienced and multi-faceted on the Internet. Two-thirds have been online for more than five years and 80 percent have access to broadband. This study also revealed that Hispanics are early adopters and users of media, devices and features compared to the general public.

Barry Henthorn, ReelTime's CEO commented, "We're honored to work with Laguna. Their unique perspective, first-class reputation and outstanding content will be essential to this co-branded network's success. Laguna's films have consistently been among the top pay-per-view titles in the Spanish language category. Our joint venture with Laguna will be the perfect marriage of our technology and their high-quality Spanish language content, and we're proud to offer this combined product to such a prominent user group."

Elart Coello, President of Laguna, stated, "We are excited about our partnership with ReelTime and believe that our product line and expertise in the Latino market combined with their technological leadership in online video streaming will open a greater entertainment experience for today's Latino audience."
