Live Television Programming Now Available On Cell Phones of
Cingular Wireless Subscribers

BERKELEY, Calif. and ATLANTA, Jan. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- MobiTV, the
world's first television network for mobile phones, said today it has
launched its live television service on Cingular Wireless, the
largest wireless carrier in the U.S. Cingular is offering MobiTV on
exclusive handsets such as the breakthrough RAZR to the affordable
Motorola V180.

For MobiTV, this launch marks a significant milestone as the company
moves into its second year of operations distributing its service on
two of the nation's largest carriers. Within the past 60 days, the
company has effectively doubled its potential market in the U.S.
through an October launch on AT&T Wireless' mMode service, prior to
AT&T's acquisition by Cingular, and today's launch on Cingular's
MEdia Net service.

The newest television distribution medium since Satellite TV, MobiTV
will be available to Cingular Wireless subscribers using the Nokia
6620, Motorola V3 (RAZR), Motorola V220, Motorola V180, and soon on
the Motorola V400 and V600 handsets.

With MobiTV, Cingular subscribers can watch live news, sports and
entertainment programming on 22 channels, including MSNBC, CNBC, ABC
News Now, NBC Mobile, FOX Sports, Discovery, TLC, C-SPAN, and other
music, sports, fashion, and comedy channels.
