Wi-Fi TV CEO, President of Napster and Other Executives Meet to Discuss Convergence Today at the 12th Mobile Entertainment Summi

UNIVERSAL CITY, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 05/24/07 -- Following an open national conference call last night, Wi-Fi TV Inc. (PINKSHEETS: WTVI) will present its founder and Chairman Alex Kanakaris in a live public forum discussion with the president of Napster and executives of other trend setting firms today at the 12th Mobile Entertainment Summit in Universal City, California. Hundreds of top mobile and Hollywood executives are attending the 12th MES, the World's largest and oldest mobile entertainment conference.

From 11:45 to 12:45, select leaders will be featured in a panel discussion on the topic "Defining Convergence."

Some users can now listen to the audio content stored on their PCs through a mobile phone, thanks to the Phling! service from Oxy Systems, and every week another software application goes mobile. You can combine a phone with just about any other portable device, and every combination has or will be tried. It's crucial to know what handheld hardware the consumer actually wants. Does the public want a phone that's a tiny PC? Does it want a great music player? Does it want a digital video camera? The audio, video and computing capabilities of new phones will directly affect which companies benefit most from the new portability of entertainment.

The all-star panel includes:

Brad Duea, President, Napster

Michael Krasner, President and Chief Executive Officer, Oxy Systems

Alex Kanakaris, Founder and Chairman, WiFi TV

Robert Gourdine, Director of Marketing and Business Development, North American Consumer Business Unit, Navteq

Moderator: Trent Larson, Director, Digital Media Protiviti

The 12th MES:

As the world's longest-running and largest event devoted to mobile entertainment, the 12th semi-annual Mobile Entertainment Summit is devoted to real-life solutions to monetizing mobile content, not pie-in-the-sky scenarios.

Mobile video and TV, music and true tones, ringbacks, short codes, off-deck, 3D games -- we tell you what works and what doesn't. We bring in the people who count from carriers, Hollywood and high-tech to explain it. Then we put you in a room with them to make deals.

MES brings the carriers, Hollywood studios and technology companies making money in mobile entertainment.
