OXYGEN HITS 68 MILLION SUBSCRIBERS

------

New Launches on Comcast and Cox and NCTC Elevate The Network�s Subscriber Base

------

BOSTON, JULY 17, 2006 � Oxygen, the only network owned and operated by women, announced today that its subscriber base has reached 68 million homes � the only network launched since 1996 to reach this subscriber level. The network�s growth spurt of more than 12 million new homes in the first half of this year is due partially to recent launches in new Comcast and Cox markets.

Oxygen is now available to digital customers in Indianapolis and Fort Wayne, Indiana. Oxygen has also launched on the expanded basic tier in the Comcast Treasure Coast, Florida system.

Oxygen will launch throughout the Cox Greater Louisiana region on August 15th. The network will be available on channel 65 in Abbeville, Crowley, New Iberia, and Franklin, Louisiana.

Between August 1st and mid-September, Oxygen will also launch on numerous NCTC systems including First Commonwealth Cablevision, Wave BB, Prairie Wave of Black Hills, and independently owned systems GCI and Trinidad.

�This has been an exciting year for us. Our enormous growth this year is getting Oxygen ever closer to full distribution, which is an extraordinary achievement for any upstart network, but especially an independent one,� said Lisa Gersh, President and Chief Operating Officer, Oxygen Media. �We have created a network with compelling content that is reaching more and more young women every day. We are thrilled that our affiliate partners have responded to us so positively.�

Oxygen has had a number of original programs launching this summer. June saw the premiere of hit series, The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency and this Saturday, Oxygen premieres Mo�Nique�s F.A.T. Chance; the second annual beauty competition for plus sized women. In August, Oxygen launches new reality series Breaking Up with Shannen Doherty and Fight Girls, a reality movie that features the country�s best female fighters as they train to compete with the toughest women on earth in a battle for the Muay Thai World Championship.
