TVN Entertainment Signs VOD Deals With 15 NCTC Affiliates

NCTC Members Lock in Full Array of Programming & Services

BURBANK, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 20, 2006 -- TVN Entertainment announced today a number of multi-year VOD deals that include Champion Broadband, Everest Communications, Knology and 12 other NCTC member companies to supply the full scope of VOD services and content packages; including 1st run theatrical movies, family and kids content, TV network and specialty programming. The separate agreements represent nearly a quarter million new VOD HHs. Included in all NCTC affiliation agreements: access to TVN's ADONISS 2.0 Advanced Asset Management System; quick-turn VOD content via TVNow, and local VOD ad sales support.

Other NCTC members recently completing deals with TVN include Prairie Wave, Surewest, Sigecom, InterMountain Cable, Guadalupe Cable, Pioneer, Braintree Electric, San Bruno, Southern Cable, Alameda, Morristown, and Cap Rock.

"Tremendous consumer appeal, a powerful value proposition, and a more economical cost of entry have combined to make launching VOD achievable for most NCTC members," said TVN's SVP of Affiliate Sales, John Smith. "TVN's one catcher model, which includes content across all VOD categories, makes TVN the natural choice for small and mid-sized operators entering the space. We are thrilled to welcome these new cable partners to our expanding affiliate base."

"Because launching VOD is extremely complex, we did our homework and found that TVN was the only VOD Provider offering all VOD content (over 4,500 VOD Titles each month) via one, integrated platform," said Dave Haverkate, President of Champion. "TVN's one-stop-shop approach greatly simplifies VOD content acquisition, metadata management and reporting. And for operators like us, this turn-key approach makes enormous sense."
