TVN Entertainment Wins a VOD Services Deal With G4

Distribution Pact Includes Access to TVNow

BURBANK, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 31, 2006 -- TVN Entertainment Corporation today announced that it has reached a multi-year VOD services agreement with G4, the "go to" network for men 18-34 and the fastest growing television network in 2006. Under the contract, TVN will provide distribution and asset management services to G4's VOD affiliates and include TVNow services.

Under terms of the deal, TVN will open up access to the complete ADONISS 2 advanced asset management suite. Accordingly, G4 will now be able to track, monitor and customize its VOD menu on a site-by-site basis. Additionally, with the TVNow service at its disposal, G4 will be able to quickly turn around live events -- such as the network's highly rated live coverage of events including E3 and Comic-Con. -- making those programs available to VOD consumers within hours of the original live telecasts. G4 is a leading network in terms of VOD distribution.

"G4 is putting out great content that has tapped a core of the heavy VOD user," said Jim Riley, Executive Vice President for TVN. "We are happy they have chosen TVN to support their industry-wide distribution."

"Beyond TVN's widely deployed platform, TVN has built cutting edge software which allows us to independently program our VOD package on a market-by-market basis," said Dale Hopkins, G4's Chief Operating Officer. "Working with TVN will allow us to build and expand our visibility across a growing number of VOD distribution outlets."
