ValCom Hits 58 Million Households for MyFamilyTV Programming Through Distribution Agreement With The Worship Network for KidMango

CLEARWATER, FL--(Marketwire - September 4, 2009) - ValCom, Inc. (OTCBB: VLCO), a leader in media technology, facilities and production content for television programming and related services, announced today that its subsidiary, MyFamilyTV, has cleared an additional 16 million homes for the KidMango programming block. MyFamilyTV signed a distribution agreement with The Worship Television Network to carry KidMango programs.

MyFamilyTV has achieved astounding growth in just a few short months. In late 2008, the network's programming was available to 15 million homes. The signing of the agreement means that MyFamilyTV's program offerings will now be distributed to over 58 million homes across the United States.

KidMango is a joint venture between MyFamilyTV's parent company, ValCom, Inc., and PorchLight Entertainment. The program lineup features 8 programs and includes animated titles like "Jay Jay The Jet Plane," "Jakers," "Where on Earth is Carmen Sandiego," and "Dennis The Menace." KidMango programming will be seen on The Worship Network starting in September.

The Worship Network is operated by Nashville based Christian Network, Inc (CNI) and is one of the networks that are part of Ion Television's digital multicast platform. The Worship Network launched in 1992 and was founded by Home Shopping Network and PaxTV founder Lowell "Bud" Paxson. The Worship Network was a part of the original PaxTV DTV lineup and has remained a part of the company's digital lineup after it rebranded as Ion Television. Ion's digital multicast is available on over 50 digital television stations across the US including DTV stations in New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago.

"We've had a great year so far at MyFamilyTV! In just a few short months, the distribution for our programming has grown from 15 million homes to 58 million homes," said C.A. Powers, President of MyFamilyTV. "I'm excited about this partnership with The Worship Network as we've been in talks for quite some time. It's great to start off our relationship by providing The Worship Network with the KidMango block and we look forward to working with them on future projects. We're in the process of building additional blocks of family programming and I'm constantly on the lookout for new fresh, original content."

"Over the past few months, the KidMango programming block and KidMango.com have both seen significant growth in audience levels," said Bruce Johnson, PorchLight's CEO. "KidMango offers some great programs and we believe this new venue will help sustain our growth."

"The Worship Network is pleased to start offering KidMango to our viewers, who will enjoy this quality children's programming. We seek to not only bring our signature Worship programming to our loyal viewers, but also provide family entertainment and value-based programming to our growing audience. KidMango is a good fit for our network," said Bruce Koblish, President/CEO of CNI.
