RMD Entertainment Group Signs Letter of Intent to Acquire Top Mobile Content Delivery Platform - MoTV

PHILADELPHIA, PA -- (Market Wire - Feb 14, 2006) -- RMD Entertainment Group (OTC: RMDG) announced today that after over eighteen months of research and development, the mobile content delivery platform known as MoTV, is now owned and operated under the RMD corporate umbrella.

MoTV, formerly a privately owned entity, has been working alongside an RMD development team for the last year and a half to bring a brand new mobile experience to the marketplace in 2006. The finished product can best be explained as a real-time broadcast similar to the original MTV (Viacom) platform -- coupled with an interactive retail element reminiscent of the Home Shopping Network (Interactive Corp.). This new hybrid mobile network not only delivers a totally new experience for the viewer, it also introduces three distinct revenue streams for network supporters: advertising, subscription, and retail.

RMD CEO Giorgio Costonis offered, "This technology by itself provides an unparalleled experience to the end user by delivering entertainment and retail interactivity to any mobile phone or device. This goes far beyond the current goal in the industry, which puts such a heavy emphasis on content; we are delivering real-time interactive content, which empowers the audience with the tools necessary to be entertained and shop simultaneously. Utilizing RMD's global hip-hop influence, we structured MoTV technology in such a way that there doesn't need to be one central hub for global content delivery. This means that we are not limited by traditional bandwidth issues and our network is ready for implementation on a global scale. This is a step forward for RMD's Hip Hop business. The Hip Hop industry has grown from backroom record labels in New York to a ten billion dollar a year business world-wide. Technological advancements and change in delivery platforms have positioned RMD to successfully compete in this business. Now MOTV offers us the ultimate promotional tool for our music releases on a global scale. "

MoTV CEO Anthony Lucas had this to say, "It was a natural fit from the beginning of our research and development. With our proprietary interactive software and compression technology, and RMD's business background with regard to entertainment and product driven content, MoTV technology now ready for the marketplace in 2006 supercedes anything else being offered to the public on a global scale. Our product offers urban music consumers the ability to view original uncensored video driven programming at a rate that offers stereo sound and picture quality very close to television quality. Furthermore it is live. Today's generation of consumers wants what is happening now. We see other major opportunities on the horizon for our product besides our initial offering of the MOTV programming and have already begun to develop those opportunities with RMD. This is IPtv taken to the next level with PDA and mobile phones serving as portable viewing centers and music marketplaces for our customers."

According to research conducted by Infonetics, IPtv service providers spent $304 Million in IPtv-related infrastructure in 2004, a number that is expected to grow to $4.5 Billion by 2009. Infonetics also asserted that there were 2.1 Million IPtv users worldwide in the first quarter of 2005, which research suggests will increase to 53.7 Million worldwide users by 2009 along with $44 Billion in service revenues. The number of IPtv subscribers in North America alone is expected to increase 12,985% over current levels by 2009.

RMD also confirmed that Giorgio Costonis would be very active in MOTV as he accepted the position of President of Business Development for the company.
