Wi-Fi Added to Dictionary as Wi-Fi TV Adopts Promotional Phrase "Wi-FiTv.com Defines the Future"

NEWPORT BEACH, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 3, 2005 -- One of the words added to the newly published Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary is "Wi-Fi," Wi-Fi TV™ Inc. (OTC: WTVN) announced today. The company stated that its new promotional phrase, based partially on this news, will be "WI-FiTV.com Defines the Future," and this phrase will be incorporated into the company's marketing materials.

According to a report published today on the Yahoo! web site, the new words listed in the Merriam-Webster Collegiate Dictionary, "Offer explanations of emerging technologies and careers, thereby reflecting changes and developments in American society."

The Merriam-Webster definition is: Wi-Fi (certification mark): used to certify the interoperability of wireless computer networking devices.

"The dictionary definition differs somewhat from the common usage of the word, which in practical terms indicates a wireless Internet connection that allows Internet enabled devices like laptop computers to connect to the Internet (hence a Wi-Fi hotspot is a specific location with a wireless connection, often a coffee shop, restaurant, airport, hotel, office complex, etc.)," said Alex Kanakaris, Chairman and Founder, Wi-Fi TV Inc.

"Wi-FiTV.com, our web site, refers to the wireless Internet delivery of live television to all Internet enabled devices, from cellular phones to computers to TVs, including delivery to Wi-Fi hotspots," added Kanakaris.
