Players Network Reaches Major Milestone, Surpassing 50,000,000 Videos Viewed On Its VOD Television Platforms

LAS VEGAS, Oct. 13, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Players Network (OTCBB:PNTV), the leading Television and New Media Digital Network dedicated to Las Vegas Entertainment and the Gaming Lifestyle, has reached 55,600,000 cumulative views on its television Video on Demand (VOD) platforms, as reported by Rentrak On Demand Essentials, a leading third-party provider of On Demand audience measurement.

PNTV's three channels of VOD content: "Vegas On Demand", "Players Network" and "Sexy Sin City TV" make up its offerings in over 27,000,000 homes in over 200 national markets through the company's distribution contracts with Comcast Cable, DirecTV, AT&T U-verse, and Verizon FiOS. The 55.6 million do not include the multi-million additional views of Players Network original programming viewed on PNTV's broadband and mobile distribution networks.

Industry analysts predict VOD Dynamic Ad Insertion will be implemented in 2011 with CPMs expected to exceed $57 per thousand views. This combined with television viewing habits shifting from linear to VOD programming will allow PNTV to generate significant revenue from each of its VOD programs viewed

Mark Bradley, Players Network's Chief Executive Officer states, "Reaching fifty-five-million views adds tremendous credibility to our sponsorship initiatives with national advertisers, and our marketing initiatives with the casino industry. This milestone confirms the ability of our original programming to attract a large, targeted audience that can be monetized in so many ways, especially through the conversion of viewers to members of Players Network's new, proprietary website that is about to launch. This is truly an exciting time of growth for Players Network."
