HISTORY(R) LAUNCHES NEW WEBSITE PAWNSTARS.COM AND ANNOUNCES PARTNERSHIP WITH PAWNGO

INTERACTIVE ONLINE PAWNING EXPERIENCE CREATED FOR FANS OF THE HIT TV SERIES

NEW YORK, November 5, 2012 - HISTORY continues its brand expansion across digital platforms with the launch of PawnStars.com - a new website portal where fans of the television series, Pawn Stars, can pawn items via Pawngo, watch episodes of Pawn Stars, play the hugely popular Pawn Stars Facebook game, purchase merchandise and further connect with the network's hit show.

The site officially launches today, Monday, November 5th, timed to the premiere of all new episodes of Pawn Stars airing on HISTORY at 10pm ET.

HISTORY's partnership with Pawngo, the industry leader of online pawning, will bring online pawning to PawnStars.com. Pawn Stars has blazed the frontier by bringing pawning to the mainstream. The buzz generated from the popular TV series has rapidly increased consumer demand for services offered by the 3,000 year-old pawn industry. By bringing pawning completely online, Pawngo has invented a more accessible and convenient way for people to directly fund their bank accounts using items they already own.

PawnStars.com will provide an online platform for viewers to find more information about the show, in addition to a safe and discreet option where they can pawn their own items. As the exclusive pawning partner on the site, Pawngo will offer an online alternative to the traditional brick-and-mortar pawn shop experience with their team of expert evaluators and Graduate GIA Gemologists.

"Pawn Stars is HISTORY's number one series and has amassed a very passionate fan base," said Samantha Maltin, SVP of Marketing for HISTORY. "As we develop brand extensions for the series, it is important to engage with Pawn Stars fans in an authentic way. Pawnstars.com allows them to experience pawning for themselves online, purchase show-themed merchandise, and play the Pawn Stars game. It provides a deeper fan 'experience' beyond the TV screen."

"We are really excited to begin this partnership with Pawn Stars, which will bring the pawn shop experience to life from the comfort of home. Many fans of the show would love to pawn their own items in Vegas but don't necessarily want to fly across the country to do so. By giving fans access to an interactive digital pawning platform, this co-branded effort provides a convenient way for everyone across the US to be a pawn star," says Pawngo CEO, Todd Hills.

HISTORY's hit series, Pawn Stars, brings viewers inside the doors of a family-run pawnshop in Las Vegas, where three generations of men from the Harrison family - grandfather Richard, son Rick and grandson Corey - jointly run the business, with clashing and camaraderie every step of the way. This family lives and breathes the pawning business, using their sharp-eyed skills to carefully assess the value of items their colorful customers bring in, objects ranging from the obscure to the truly historic. Pawn Stars airs Monday's at 10pm EST on HISTORY.
