Status of NMTV Agreement

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - January 5, 2010) - RTGV (OTCBB: RTGV): Effective December 17, 2009, Roger Taylor has resigned his role in the Share Exchange Agreement with RTGV and will have no further role in NMTV going forward.

The RTGV officers are requiring that closure of this transaction be an immediate priority of all parties demanding the cooperation necessary to close. Linda Perry has just returned from Los Angeles where she met with a wide variety of potential media partners and potential post-closing acquisition targets and tested the new Business Plan with very positive results. A significant portion of the trip was to steward the sale of the non-core assets. She commented: "Sometimes unforeseen delays come with a silver lining. New media has been moving like lightning and by dramatically changing the Business Plan we are on the crest of the evolution. The payment systems model is in sync with, and was in advance of, the new model of paying for content suggested by Rupert Murdock and others last week and reported in The New York Times. For years the revenue model was based on advertising on the web which has fallen very short of expectations."

Dom Hawes, Barry Fludgate, President and CEO designate of NMTV, and Perry are moving forward to closure with the prudence required, but as a #1 priority.

Perry will travel to London next week after which there will be an additional Amendment to the Definitive Agreement filed.
