Marks SCI FI's First On Demand Offering

New York, New York - November 22, 2005 - For the first time ever, NBC Universal Cable (NBCU Cable) will premiere two special supplements to SCI FI Channel's highly anticipated original miniseries, 'The Triangle,' available free on-demand and broadband Nov. 23, prior to their network premieres. The announcement was made today by David Howe, Executive Vice President and General Manager, SCI FI Channel and Jean-Briac Perrette, Senior Vice President New Media & Chief Financial Officer, NBCU Cable.

'The Bermuda Triangle: Startling New Secrets' and 'SCI FI Inside: The Triangle' will premiere on-demand and broadband four days prior to their network premieres on Nov. 27. Participating affiliates include Time Warner Cable and Adelphia in addition to Insight Communications, Patriot Media and Verizon who will receive the content via TVN Entertainment Corporation as well as other mid-size operators such as Armstrong and Buckeye. NBCU Cable will provide taggable spots for affiliates who sign up for the specials to help promote the offering.

"SCI FI Channel has a reputation for exploring new opportunities, whether it be the first-ever television pod cast, video blog, or now these on-demand premieres," said Howe. "'The Triangle' is one of the most exciting projects we've ever produced and we're thrilled to reach out to potential viewers and whet their appetites by offering these original specials via our cable partners."

"Premiering these two specials on-demand is groundbreaking for SCI FI and our distribution partners," commented Perrette. "Our affiliates can offer subscribers a rare chance to tune in before the SCI FI airing, and is a great opportunity to showcase the on-demand service and drum up excitement leading up to the miniseries debut."

Hosted by NBC/MSNBC news anchor Lester Holt and produced by NBC News Productions. 'The Bermuda Triangle: Startling New Secrets,' is a two-hour SCI FI declassified investigative special that follows new leads and employs the latest tools of modern science in an effort to unravel the decades-old mystery of the Bermuda Triangle and the unexplained disappearance of the famed "Flight 19." In addition to free on demand, a five-minute clip of the special will be available to affiliates' broadband web sites.

'SCI FI Inside: The Triangle' will be available free on demand and on broadband. This 30-minute special will take a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the epic miniseries and feature cast interviews and never-before-seen footage.

'The Triangle,' a heart-pounding, 6-hour miniseries event, premiering Monday, December 5th on the SCI FI Channel, marks the first-ever collaboration between renowned filmmakers, Bryan Singer ('X-Men', 'Superman Returns') and Dean Devlin ('Independence Day').

'The Triangle' focuses on a disparate group of professionals, brought together to investigate the dangerous truths behind one of the greatest legends of our time...the Bermuda Triangle. Billionaire Eric Benirall (Same Neill) is losing his cargo ships and their crews, at a frightening pace-and now, he wants answers. His bemused, handpicked team of subject-specific experts include lead skeptic and tabloid journalist Howard Thomas (Eric Stoltz), ocean resource engineer Emily Patterson (Catherine Bell), scientist/adventurer Bruce Geller (Michael Rodgers) and psychic Stan Lathem (Bruce Davison). Drawn together with the promise of financial fortune of unlimited funding for their research and the chance for once-in-a-lifetime riches, the team sets out to solve this most daunting of puzzles. Lou Diamond Phillips also stars as Meeno Paloma; the sole survivor of a tragic disaster in the Triangle who's inexplicably changed life threatens to tear him apart.
