StubHub Builds Mobile Presence With Two Solutions Now Available to Fans

Integration With go2 Media and WHERE™ Gives Fans New Ways to Shop StubHub

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - December 19, 2007) - StubHub, the world's largest ticket marketplace, today announced the extension of the StubHub consumer experience to the mobile arena, giving consumers a new and convenient way to catch live entertainment events anyplace, anytime. Today, StubHub is now integrated into go2.com, a mobile shopping mall and WHERE, the leading location based application platform. These solutions enable customers to buy their tickets securely right up until the event. Both WHERE and go2.com are now mobile conduits into StubHub's dynamic marketplace where tickets to nearly 30,000 live events are available.

The partnerships broaden StubHub's reach even farther in a year that has already included major milestones for the company acquired by eBay in February. For instance, fans have bought and sold more tickets on StubHub in 2007 than in the company's entire history combined (2000-2006). Fresh on the heels of celebrating its 10 Millionth Ticket transaction, the move to mobile couldn't come at a better time.

"By making StubHub available via mobile devices, we're giving casual and die-hard fans alike a chance to never have to worry about a sold-out sign, and in this case, to not rely on a computer to shop for that perfect seat," said Ashley Gibson, StubHub's Senior Product Manager. "It's a convenience that fits our fans-first mentality to a T, and we're excited to see customers already taking advantage of this industry-first offering. We look forward to growing our presence in mobile with new offerings in the coming months."

Consumers can now use their phones to access go2 Media or WHERE, with both solutions allowing shoppers to check StubHub ticket availability and make a purchase while on the go. This will allow a customer to check prices and purchase tickets safely and securely anywhere, even right outside the event. In both instances, with one click of a button customers will connect directly to a StubHub telesales agent to purchase their ticket. For last minute events, the buyer will be directed to StubHub's local Last Minute Service location by the agent to pick up their tickets. In addition to these features, StubHub customers who use WHERE will also be able to see the nearest StubHub Last Minute Service Center based on their current location. Users will then be able to leverage WHERE's technology to obtain a map of that location along with turn by turn directions, making it even easier to retrieve their tickets.

Users will first need to install the WHERE application to obtain the StubHub widget, which can be done directly from their mobile phone or online at www.where.com. For a low monthly fee of $2.99, users can also take advantage of other WHERE widgets including weather and ski reports, and a growing variety of additional lifestyle-based applications. go2.com can be accessed directly from any mobile browser from all major U.S. carriers.

As one of the top 20 mobile websites in the U.S., go2 Media working with StubHub ensures tickets will be available 'on demand' to millions of mobile users.

"go2 Media has delivered more than one billion WAP page views since 2001, proving that mobile users today do more than talk and text with their mobile devices," said Rob Adler, CEO of go2 Media. "We are pleased to be able to offer our mobile users easy access to StubHub's incredible database of event tickets."
