FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

"Adult Swim Meets The X Box"

New York, NY - October 11, 2005: Heavy.com, the world's leading broadband network with more than 6 million unique viewers monthly, today announced broadband's first-ever fall season of programming. While Yahoo! and AOL are busy running reruns and footage left on the cutting room floor from lackluster broadcast network shows, Heavy.com is launching an entire slate of original programming guaranteed to amuse, titillate and satisfy even the most voracious entertainment junkie.

Debuting this month, Heavy's lineup of "Must Stream TV" features no less than seven original series:

Gangster Nanny 911

Machinima created using Activision's "True Crime 2" One of three machinimas that Heavy's creating for Activision

Tourettes Cowboy

Too outrageous for TV? No problem. Come to where the audience is-at Heavy.com. Machinima created using Activision's "Gun"

The Amazing Super Powered Emo Kid

Well...It's Tony Hawk! First machinima title to include celebrity endorsement. Created using Activision's "Tony Hawk's American Wasteland"

Honey, I killed the Geezer

The tale of a serial killer with a serious case of I.B.S. who befriends a Geezer with prostate problems. They talk about life, love and the pursuit of good digestion. Made from "Indigo Prophecy" game engine; first Machinima with Atari

Dr. Philpra, Colossus Whisperer

Heavy's second machinima series for Sony, following the success of the seminal "Pimp My Weapon," which has already streamed more than 9 million episodes. Created using "Shadow of the Colossus"

Half-Metal Jacket

It's Bad News Bears meets Stripes meets machinima. A story of lovable loser Navy Seals who are trying to get it right. Created using Sony's "SOCOM 3"

Need For Speed: The Musical

A high-octane fuel injected romp. It's Fast and the Furious meets Knight Rider meets Cats. Machinima created using EA's "Need For Speed"

"'Must See TV' is a snore," said David Carson, Co-CEO of Heavy.com. "'Must Stream TV' is where the action is-where Adult Swim meets the X Box. Nowhere but Heavy.com will you find a full new season of fall original programming-humorous, outrageous programming that TV can't do. Broadband is poised to overtake cable audiences and America is ready for breakthrough shows like Dr. Philpra, Colossus Whisperer."
