Wi-Fi TV's New Social Internet TV Is a Global Ratings Hit, Rocketing to the Top 25,000 in the World on Premiere Day and Surpassing Millions of Other Sites

NEWPORT BEACH, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 22, 2007 -- Wi-Fi TV Inc. (PINKSHEETS: WTVI) launched its new Social Internet TV website this week ( and quickly scored its biggest viewing day in the Company's twelve year history, and set the stage for major viewer and advertising growth.

According to Alexa, an independent web tracker, Wi-Fi TV achieved a top 25,000 ranking of most viewed websites in the world, easily surpassing Wi-Fi TV's previous highest ranked day, and topping tens of millions of other websites. While not yet anywhere near You Tube or My Space levels, it is an impressive premier for a website from a little known company that has yet to advertise. It also follows a trend where Wi-Fi TV, with the last generation of its Social Internet TV website, has climbed steadily up the Alexa rankings from a three month average ranking in the 300,000 range to a recent three month ranking in the 125,000 range, and occasional single days where viewing reached into the top 100,000. Reach and page views have also been steadily growing, and the independent NeoTracker has reported that Wi-Fi TV has been viewed in over 190 countries.

"For an initial launch with very little marketing, this is a phenomenal start for the new Wi-Fi TV website. While the site is being expanded and enhanced on a daily basis, Wi-Fi TV is now the right platform to bring Social Internet TV to the next step in global viewing," stated Chairman Alex Kanakaris.

"The Internet audience creates its own hits and misses and constantly defies the status quo. Wi-Fi TV has struck a chord with the Internet generation and the response we have been getting from the Internet viewing public has been overwhelming. We believe the timing is perfect for the new Wi-Fi TV, and now the Alexa ratings show that we are moving in the right direction. Combined with our new targeted video advertising, as well as premium station sales and premium content and product sales, we strongly believe in the future of Wi-Fi TV," Kanakaris added.

"The next step is to keep increasing the Wi-Fi TV audience and while the Company focuses on building the web site, we are calling on all fans of Wi-Fi TV to tell their friends and family to sign-up for free at Wi-Fi TV. This is a grass roots effort that can help turn Wi-Fi TV into the Next IT website," Kanakaris concluded.

On February 21, 2007, Alexa reported that Wi-Fi TV's traffic rank was 24,946, that Wi-Fi TV had a 69% increase in average traffic over a three month period, and that its three month traffic ranking had increased 89,703. The one day traffic ranking, which closely follows the launch of the new website, was the all-time one-day high for Wi-Fi TV.

How Are Traffic Trend Graphs Calculated?

"The Trend graph shows you a three-day moving average of the site's daily traffic rank, charted over time. The daily traffic rank reflects the traffic to the site based on data for a single day. In contrast, the main traffic rank shown in the Alexa Toolbar and elsewhere in the service is calculated from three months of aggregate traffic data.

Daily traffic rankings will sometimes benefit sites with sporadically high traffic, while the three-month traffic ranking benefits sites with consistent traffic over time. Since we feel that consistent traffic is a better indication of a site's value, we've chosen to use the three-month traffic rank to represent the site's overall popularity. We use the daily traffic rank in the Trend graphs because it allows you to see short-term fluctuations in traffic much more clearly," according to information on the Alexa web site.
