MYSPACE LAUNCHES PRIMETIME APPLICATION ENABLING USERS TO WATCH FULL-LENGTH & SHORT FORM HULU, WARNER BROS, MYSPACE ORIGINAL AND LICENSED CONTENT ON PROFILES AND HOME PAGES

Redesigned MySpace Primetime Community Also Launching

LOS ANGELES´┐ŻNovember 12 2008´┐ŻMySpace today announced the domestic launch of the MySpace Primetime Application (http://www.myspace.com/primetimeapp). The new, internally developed, application is available free for users to embed on profiles and homepages with one click of the mouse.

Once embedded, the MySpace Primetime application allows users to search for and watch premium content from Hulu and any of the +150 branded channels on MySpaceTV. All of the content is derived from a partnership with Hulu, Warner Bros, Sony and from MySpaceTV originals, such as Roommates and Special Delivery. The extensive programming is easily found via efficient micro search or intuitive A-Z directory functionality.

The MySpace Primetime Application is free to download for all users. It is ad-supported through the multiple ad-solutions available on MySpace including companion display advertising, tickers, pre-roll, post-roll, amongst others.

"The Primetime Application highlights how professional video content is being voraciously consumed across the MySpace ecosystem, not just within MySpaceTV," said Jason Kirk, VP of Video & Entertainment for MySpace. "Video on MySpace flows throughout the network as there are multiple entry points where videos can be discovered, watched and shared including comments, bulletins and MySpaceTV. We believe the 76 million US users spending four hours on the site every month, and the advertisers that rely on our ad-solutions, will be happy with the flexibility of this application."

Here's how users add the MySpace Primetime application to their profiles/user homepage:

STEP 1: Visit http://www.myspace.com/primetimeapp

STEP 2: Click the "Add this App" button in the top right hand corner.

STEP 3: A pop-up box regarding placement and notification options appears. Users then choose where they want the application to be placed on their homepage or profile and how they want it to be updated, if at all. Once satisfied with their selections, users click "Add" to continue.

STEP 4: The application will then be added to the area the user indicated in the previous step.

STEP 5: ALL DONE! Users may now start using the application.

In addition to the MySpace Primetime Application, MySpace has redesigned the MySpace Primetime community (originally launched December 2007) where users are able to watch content such as 30 Rock, Saturday Night Live, 24, Heroes, and classic TV programming including Airwolf, Buck Rogers and Kojack powered by a partnership with Hulu. In addition, users may also watch licensed content from over 150 branded channels on the site such as TMZ, BBC Worldwide, The Sony Minisode Network, Sorority Forever, National Geographic and MySpaceTV Original programming including Roommates, Special Delivery and Paul Brogan.

MySpace recently hit an all-time high with domestic unique users and engagement in October according to comScore; seeing approximately 76 million users domestically and 122 million worldwide unique users (August 2008). comScore also reported MySpace surpassed Yahoo! to become the top publisher of online display advertising in the U.S., accounting for 16% of all display ads viewed in June.
