Wi-Fi TV's Global Platform to Add Local Content and Reach Cars, iPods and iPhones as CNN Guests State That Wi-Fi and Internet Will Trump Satellite for Content Delivery

NEWPORT BEACH, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 26, 2007 -- Wi-Fi TV Inc. (PINKSHEETS: WTVI) unveiled a description of its growth plan for the newly introduced Social Internet TV platform ( today, in response to comments about the future of satellite radio made on the CNN TV program Reliable Sources which aired on February 25, 2007.

"Local content is the next step in the growth of the Wi-Fi TV platform. We are going to build up our Country, City, Topic and Member content while we also build our Multi-Platform delivery to include content for iPods and iPhones," stated Wi-Fi TV Inc. Chairman Alex Kanakaris.

Michael Harrison, editor and publisher of "Talkers" magazine, stated on CNN on Sunday, "Local is very important. And local will always be a major part of broadcasting. And there's no reason why the Internet and iPods and all of these other forms of technology can't provide local service to not only their communities, but to give everybody in the world a window on the microscopic specifics of each locality, which is very exciting when you think about it."

CNN program host Howard Kurtz was joined by Mr. Harrison and Marc Fisher, columnist for the Washington Post and author of "Something in the Air: Radio, Rock and the Revolution that Shaped a Generation."

There was a discussion regarding the $7 billion that XM and Sirius radio have reportedly spent collectively to garner 13 million users, and how these companies have reportedly lost a combined $6 billion in the past few years.

Michael Harrison said these services have offered great programming but, "Its just not the last stop on the track. And I think that Wi-Fi and Internet looms on the horizon as the real end to all of this diversity, because I think that's where it all will wind up.

"And what's going to happen is, all the money they spent on creating this satellite system will have gone, you know, into the red round disposable unit. The problem is, they're just going to be content providers. Everybody is a production company. Ultimately, the Internet is going to win out and hurt all of these other forms of media, making them seem old-fashioned," Mr. Harrison stated.

To this, host Howard Kurtz stated, "It sounds like you're not buying any satellite radio stock."

Marc Fisher of the Washington Post stated, "We're just a few years away from Internet-wireless Internet in the car. When that happens, the justification for satellite radio is really quite slim."

Wi-Fi TV Chairman Kanakaris stated, "Besides daily content and technology improvements to Wi-Fi TV, Phase 2 of Wi-Fi TV will launch on May 1 with multi-platform delivery features, including content for cellular phones and portable music and video players. We also plan to be the first online TV service catering directly to the car marketplace which Sirius and XM have targeted.

"Wi-Fi TV has introduced this past week the latest version of its vision for content delivery, building on many years of Internet experience, and it is a platform with individual pages for each Country, City, Topic, and Member where Wi-Fi TV has live TV stations or on-demand content.

"We are delivering a platform that is the future of content delivery. This week we will be improving the ease of free log-in, the ease of uploading member videos, enhancing the station listing and search features, and adding additional news feeds for our breaking news stories. In the next few weeks, we will be improving both the MyWi-FiParty and One-Web-World features. We are also going to be increasing the scope of the Wi-FiTVPhone which our members can quickly download for free," Mr. Kanakaris stated.
