LOS ANGELES -- IPTV Corporation (Pink Sheets:IPTV) ("IPTV" or the "Company"), continues to build momentum and chooses Arqiva for DTH distribution giving IPTV Transatlantic fiber connectivity, uplinking to the UK, and access to the British Sky Broadcasting digital platform allowing the Company to operate as if it were a UK broadcaster.

Arqiva is positioned as the major gateway to Europe for American broadcasters and allows IPTV to distribute its live and pre-recorded television programming from its offices in Santa Monica, California directly to the UK in a very cost efficient manner. IPTV CEO Jeff Hultman states, "Partnering with a forward thinking technology company such as Arqiva enhances our ability to distribute our content in the UK and positions us to expand across Europe as we execute our business plans. Arqiva brings us a total end-to-end distribution solution, excellent customer service, and years of broadcast experience. They are the perfect partner for our business."

For IPTV, using Arqiva simplifies distribution so that once the content leaves their facilities in Santa Monica, all elements of the onward distribution are taken care of by Arqiva. From Arqiva's teleport in Los Angeles, content is delivered across the Atlantic by fiber directly to one of Arqiva's many Eurobird multiplexes in the UK. It then appears as part of the Sky direct-to-home (DTH) platform in the UK as channel 670. "Rather than deal with multiple parties to enable distribution outside the U.S., our customers only have to work with one entity. We are a total end-to-end service package," explains Simon Thrush, Senior Vice President and head of Arqiva's U.S. operations.
