ION Life Rolls Out New Slate of Programming for 2009

Celebrates 2nd Anniversary of Channel Launch

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- ION Life, the country's first multiple platform digital network with programming dedicated to the celebration of positive living, is rolling out a new slate of programming for 2009. Eight new television series have been acquired to expand upon the network's fresh content across several genres including active living & adventure, personal growth & wellness, and design & d�cor. Each new show will air daily Monday through Sunday.

"ION Life's brand promise to celebrate life's most positive moments is fulfilled with our current roster of programs and these new acquisitions," said Marc Zand, Senior Vice President, Digital Networks, ION Media Networks. "Coming from a variety of content partners, these programs showcase the diversity and pro-social messaging of ION Life programming featuring topics that focus on personal relationships, stories of inspiration, community engagement, healthy & active living and home design. We are excited to be celebrating our second anniversary, and are pleased with our steady subscriber growth and increased consumer interest, as well as the important partnerships we have established in the content community."

Among the new celebrated shows that join the schedule in January are two series making their U.S. premieres: "Say Yes and Marry Me" (Chestnut Park Media), a charming half-hour series that helps people pull off romantic, once-in-a-lifetime proposals, and "Design U" (Canamedia), a half-hour show that attempts to bring out the inner designer hidden deep inside those that show no signs of design life!

In addition to these newcomers, ION Life unveils "Home Team" (Litton Worldwide Distribution), a one-hour series which awards a deserving family or individual with a down payment and first year's mortgage payments for their first home. ION Life's new half-hour cooking series "Bringing It Home" (M Entertainment) introduces on-location cooking segments with top celebrity chefs that show viewers how to take seasonal ingredients straight from the farm to the kitchen and create fresh, healthy meals for the whole family. And, for those who wish to learn how to contribute to a healthier planet, "Green Matters" (Planet Pictures) a half-hour series that proves knowledge is power, providing information on what measures can be taken to "go green."

Beginning in February, viewers can explore the world and plan their next holiday destination with the travel and adventure series "Explore" (Planet Pictures), a half-hour series that will inspire exciting adventures and vacations from the single traveler to the family.

In April, the spring schedule will bloom with two new additions. Whether it's reuniting old friends, giving a glamorous makeover, or providing opportunities to those in need, the one-hour series "Home Delivery" (NBCU) brings the most unique and compelling lifestyle stories to television. And, to top it off, ION Life rounds out the schedule with the half-hour health and lifestyle series "Living Better" (NBCU), hosted by NYT best-selling author and nutritionist Ellie Krieger, bringing energy, enthusiasm and tips for leading a healthy and balanced lifestyle.

In addition to the new shows, viewers will be able to enjoy new episodes of ION Life's existing programming, including shows like: "FoodWise", "Kids Healthworks", "Yoga", "Pilates", "Gadgets, Gadgets, Gadgets", "Great American Festivals", "Kids Healthworks", "Profiles in Caring", "Taste!", "The Weekend Guy", "Urban Peasant" and "Girls Gone Fishing".
