Leading Direct-to-Home Provider Expands International Programming Choices
In Partnership with SES AMERICOM to Meet Growing Demand for Ethnic Content

Home2US to showcase newest channels from Asia to The Netherlands at NAB Booth #C5246

LAS VEGAS - April 14, 2008 - Home2US (www.home2us.com), a leading provider of top international television and radio programming to ethnic audiences throughout the U.S. and beyond, today announced the expansion of its core direct-to-home content lineup.

The fastest growing DTH platform in America, Home2US has added BVN Television, six Radio Netherlands channels, and a whole new international community to its diverse digital dial. BVN offers a compilation of Dutch television and radio programming, including a wide selection of news, sports, and entertainment shows that are broadcast in English, Dutch, Flemish, Spanish, and Portuguese to audiences living and working throughout North and South America.

Home2US also announced it has signed long-term programming distribution agreement renewals with The Asia Network (TAN TV) to continue the reliable delivery of popular Korean language programming to Korean communities and families virtually anywhere in the U.S. The Home2US lineup features news updates, entertainment, and sports action programming from all five of the major South Korean broadcast networks, including EBS-America, KBS, MBC, SBS, and YTN. Content is delivered straight to subscriber homes across America over SES AMERICOM's AMC-4 satellite.

The Korean-based Christian Global Network (CGN TV), pleased with its growing success in the U.S. market, has also renewed its distribution alliance with Home2US. Under the new agreement, Home2US now provides CGN with an end-to-end solution featuring a fiber backhaul between the networks' Seoul and Los Angeles studios and the SES AMERICOM earth station in Woodbine, Maryland. Home2US provides the same level of dedicated delivery to CGN audiences in Europe and the Middle East.

"Home2US is truly in the sweet spot as growing ethnic populations across North and South America want familiar television programming from their home sweet homeland, wherever that may be," said Home2US president and CEO Emrah Ozkan, who launched the company in 2003 to bring culturally diverse audiences in the U.S. together with their homegrown content. "BVN is just the latest blue-chip international broadcaster to join Home2US and the top platform for compelling television and radio from around the globe. We've combined that premier programming with the most reliable, ubiquitous distribution solution aboard SES AMERICOM’s AMC-4 satellite to reach our expanding customer base across North and South America."

"Home2US has a simple recipe for success: offer subscribers a growing lineup of compelling international programming that features superior picture quality," said Bryan McGuirk, president of Media and Enterprise solutions for SES AMERICOM. "The U.S. market for international programming is significant and growing every day, and our reliable AMC-4 satellite gives Home2US the reach it needs to serve customers anywhere in the country."
