Wi-Fi TV Sets China Launch to Follow U.K. Expansion as 130 Million Chinese Go Online and Young Chinese Look for Socially Positive Interactive Content

Wi-Fi TV to Work With Chinese Regulatory Authorities to Provide Positive Global Social Environment With Ban on Internet Gaming as China Fights Internet Addiction

BEIJING -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 14, 2007 -- Wi-Fi TV Inc. (PINKSHEETS: WTVI), creator of the Social Internet TV platform, will follow its upcoming growth and expansion in England with a launch catered directly to the 130 million Internet users in China. And Wi-Fi TV, unlike many other social networking related websites, is seeking cooperation and advice from Chinese regulatory and cultural authorities with Wi-Fi TV banning violent video games and all forms of Internet gaming from its website in versions that can be viewed in China.

At the end of 2006, China had 137 million Internet users, an increase of 23.4 per cent from the previous year.

Of users under 18, an estimated 13 percent, or 2.3 million, are Internet addicts, according to a 2006 study by the China National Children's Centre.

The social consequences of addiction had caught the government off guard, as had the Internet's explosive growth.

"Suddenly, from a handful of users in 1997, China now has over 130 million. People can get online in the most remote places. The legal system did not have time to develop," Mr. Tao of the Centre said.

Addiction to the Internet is blamed for most juvenile crime in China, a number of suicides, and deaths from exhaustion by players unable to tear themselves away from marathon game sessions.

"With all the great educational, entertainment and social networking attributes of the Internet, it's a shame that bad Internet games have created a problem at the thousands of Internet cafes and elsewhere in China. The Chinese people have embraced the Internet like no other people in the world, and Wi-Fi TV is going to work with Chinese partners to make Wi-Fi TV a great and positive experience for the huge and growing Chinese marketplace," said Dennis Villaroman, Manager of Strategic Development for Wi-Fi TV Inc.

"We believe that the expansion of Wi-Fi TV into China, following our current addition of infrastructure and marketing in England, will serve all Wi-Fi TV members and shareholders as another step in setting Wi-Fi TV apart from millions of other websites," Mr. Villaroman added.

In 2005, a Shanghai court handed a life sentence to an online game player who stabbed a competitor to death for stealing his cyber-sword, a virtual prize earned during game-play.

Combining sympathy with discipline, a military-style boot camp near Beijing is at the front-line of China's battle against Internet addiction, a disorder afflicting millions of the nation's youth.

The Internet Addiction Treatment Centre (IATC) in Daxing county uses a blend of therapy and military drills to treat the children of China's nouveau riche addicted to online games, Internet pornography, cybersex and chats.
