NBC UNIVERSAL CABLE HAS TOP THREE ENTERTAINMENT NETS FOR AD RECALL

Bravo, SCI FI, USA Top IAG Rankings For General Recall, Brand Recall and Message Recall of Standard Ads

Bravo A Stand Out Among Cable Entertainment Nets for Program Engagement and In Program Placement

NEW YORK � May 20, 2008 � NBC Universal Cable Entertainment today announced findings from IAG Research on ad effectiveness and program engagement. In the first quarter, three NBC Universal Cable nets, Bravo, SCI FI and USA, took the top positions in General Recall, Brand Recall and Message Recall among all ads to air on each network. Additionally, Bravo stood out among entertainment nets in Program Engagement. The announcements were made by Jeff Gaspin, President and Chief Operating Officer, Universal Television Group.

"This data validates the strategies we have put into place at the NBC Universal Cable Entertainment networks," said Gaspin. "Our aim is to provide both an effective environment for our advertisers and an engaging consumer experience and we're creating both through our outstanding programming and innovative marketing."

"Our clients are looking for the right environment for their ad messages and the best metrics to demonstrate the return on their investment,' added Steve Mandala, Executive Vice President of Cable Ad Sales, NBC Universal. "Today's data only underscores the value we bring to our advertising partners by connecting their marketing efforts to the unique and distinct brands of our leading cable entertainment networks."

For standard ads, NBC Universal's Bravo, SCI FI and USA took the top three spots in the categories of General Recall, Brand Recall and Message Recall, demonstrating effective environments for advertiser messages. Among cable entertainment nets, Bravo leads by significant margins in Program Engagement and has delivered some of the top In Program Placements, indicating close viewer attention to programming.

This study follows IAG's published report of the most effective product integrations on television for 2007, in which four of the top five product integrations on cable were on Bravo. In all, NBC Universal platforms had eight of the top ten, with the other four on NBC. The integrations were judged most effective based on their positive impact on brand opinion.

The IAG results illustrate a higher ad-impact strategy defined in research studies undertaken by NBC Universal Cable Entertainment, including a study done in coordination with the University of Connecticut and GE's EdgeLab. The EdgeLab study identified ways to increase viewer engagement in the development process that would translate into a higher impact environment for advertisers. In this increasingly competitive ad market, NBC Universal is committed to be at the forefront of developing strategy to improve ROI metrics for advertisers.
