OBN Holdings Launches Music Video Showcase; Enters into Agreements with Sony, Warner Brothers, EMI and Universal Music Group

LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 2, 2005--OBN Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB:OBNH) today announced the launching of a new television series, "Video Music Showcase". The announcement comes in conjunction with agreements entered into with music giants Sony, Warner Brothers, EMI, and Universal Music Group.

The video music show covers a variety of music genres, and can be seen on OBNH subsidiaries Omni Broadcasting Network and POD Channel. Fans can watch up to eight hours of their favorite artists during normal broadcast hours. OBNH is currently seeking a host for what is expected to be a widely popular show.

"We're excited about the new series and our relationship with the biggest names in music and video entertainment," stated Roger Neal Smith, President and CEO of OBN Holdings, Inc. "There is currently no other video show being aired on national broadcast television. We're proud to be the first."

The show is a change in format for POD Channel, which previously focused on airing infomercials. Smith believes the new format will provide OBNH the ability to entertain viewers while continuing to sell various products during commercial spots aired during the show. A majority of the expenditures associated with airing the music videos are not required as was the case for airing infomercials. Revenue generated from airing commercial spots along with the discontinuation of costs associated with broadcasting infomercials is expected to provide a substantial increase in net revenue to the company.
In keeping with the theme of the networks, the series will not feature videos containing explicit sex, violence or language.
