SCI FI.COM UNVEILS NEW DIGITAL OFFERINGS

New Broadband Channel, SCI FI Drive-In, Launches in January

SCI FI PULSE Introduces the Battlestar Galactica Video Maker Tool Kit

PASADENA, Calif. � January 12, 2007 � As part of SCI FI's continued commitment to providing viewers with unique ways to interact with digital content, SCI FI.com today announced the creation of SCI FI Drive-in, a new broadband destination for hard-to-find science fiction classics, and the addition the Battlestar Galactica Video Maker Took Kit, a new user generated content feature on SCI FI Pulse.

SCI FI Drive-in introduces the digital generation to the fun, retro movies and shorts that put the science fiction genre on the map. Launching on January 21 with a library of nearly 100 films, shorts and animations, SCI FI Drive-in presents classic cult movies, fun television serials and uproariously campy documentaries and trailers. SCI FI Drive-in will feature films such as The Cabinet of Dr. Caligare, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, The Giant Gila Monster, and The Snow Creature. Serial genre titles will include Flash Gordon, The Lost City and Undersea Kingdom. In addition, SCI FI Drive-In will also offer a variety of hilariously outdated educational films such as Century 21 Calling, Design for Dreaming, A Touch of Magic and Man and his Culture, in addition to side-splitting original film trailers for camp classics such as Attack of the 50 Foot Woman, Bella Lugosi Meets a Brooklyn Gorilla and Twenty Million Miles to Earth.

SCI FI Pulse, the Channel's original online content destination which has generated over 22 million streams since debuting last year, will soon release the Battlestar Galactica Video Maker Tool Kit, an online resource which enables fans to create their own short form content. Complete with film clips, special effects, music, and sound effects, users are invited to create their own promotional clips for Battlestar Galactica, which may be submitted for on-air consideration. The new feature builds upon the popularity of the Battlestar Galactica series and webisodes and invites viewers of the show to participate in the creative process by generating their own unique content.

SCI FI Channel is a television network where "what if" is what's on. SCI FI fuels the imagination of viewers with original series and events, blockbuster movies and classic science fiction and fantasy programming, as well as a dynamic Web site (www.scifi.com ) and magazine. Launched in 1992, and currently in 86 million homes, SCI FI Channel is a network of NBC Universal, one of the world's leading media and entertainment companies.
