Style Me, Signature Series From WE: Women's Entertainment, Licensed to U.K.'S LivingTV

First Series from VOOM HD Networks and Mega Media (Singapore) Co-Production Pact Draws International Sales

Cannes, France - April 5, 2006 - Building on the momentum of Rainbow Media's global expansion initiative, iD Distribution has concluded negotiations to license Style Me, its signature series premiering on WE: Women's Entertainment, to the U.K.'s LivingTV. The announcement comes on the heels of news released Monday that WE content has now been sold by iD Distribution into Sweden, Denmark, Belgium, Turkey, Finland, Korea, the Middle East and New Zealand.

Style Me was co-produced by Singapore's Mega Media PTE LTD and ULTRA-HD, one of the 15 VOOM HD Networks owned by Rainbow Media ("Rainbow"), as part of a three-year, $20 million production pact between production company Mega Media, the Media Development Authority of Singapore and VOOM HD Networks signed at MIPCOM last October. The series premiered on WE in January to strong reviews and will air on ULTRA-HD later this year.

The sale was announced for Rainbow by Glenn Oakley, Senior Vice President, Business Development, and for Mega Media PTE LTD, by Managing Director Jonathan Foo.

LivingTV has acquired completed episodes of the reality-based show that seeks to create the next top celebrity stylist for series host Rachel Hunter. Twelve contestants vie for the top spot and the chance to win $10,000 in cash plus a one-year contract with a talent agency and the opportunity to style Hunter for an A-list, red carpet event. LivingTV has also optioned the format to the series and is exploring the possibility of creating a local U.K. version of the series.

Currently seen in over 58 million U.S. homes, WE: Women's Entertainment is the only cable network dedicated to helping women connect to one another and the world around them. WE's original programming-under the direction of Executive Vice President/General Manager Kim Martin-has garnered record ratings for the Network, with the '05/'06 season pacing to be the best in WE history for primetime delivery of core demographic households. WE is continuing its commitment to original programming throughout 2006 with a strong lineup of series and specials, including John Edward Cross Country, Two Funny: Cotter & Louise, Skating's Next Star and a third season of the Network's hit series Bridezillas.

"More and more broadcasters worldwide are looking to reach new viewers by supplementing their lineups with proven niche content," said Oakley. "Rainbow's content, whether produced for the VOOM HD Networks or WE, is innovative and unique, and we believe that LivingTV's U.K. viewers will appreciate and enjoy the universal sensibilities conveyed in these programs."

"We are gratified to have sold our largest co-production project with VOOM to date into such an influential market as the U.K.," said Foo. "It validates the quality of the work we intend to co-produce with our North American partners at VOOM and other Rainbow Networks." The series is represented for sale to Asian markets by Mega's distribution arm, 6-6-8.

Added iD Distribution Managing Director Sally Miles, "We are very excited to be representing ULTRA-HD and WE: Women's Entertainment original programming to the international market and instantly recognized the synergy this programming has with platforms like LivingTV. We're also encouraged by LivingTV's interest in optioning the format for Style Me and look forward to the possibility of a local U.K. version of this dynamic show."
