Pro-G powering Virgin Media with video games content

London, England, February 14 2007: Pro-G Media is delighted to announce that its popular online video games publication Pro-G ( www.pro-g.co.uk) is now syndicating its news, reviews, previews, screenshots, cheats and official videos to the Virgin Media portal ( www.virginmedia.com) as part of an ongoing content agreement.

Virgin Media is the UK's leading entertainment and communications company. Formerly known as NTL:Telewest, it is now the biggest Virgin-branded company in the world and is the first to offer customers a 'quadplay' of digital TV, broadband, phone and mobile.

This agreement has significantly extended the editorial reach of Pro-G, which already stands at over 725,000 unique users per month excluding syndication partners.

"It's great to be providing our textual and video content to a company that has such a widely recognised global brand," said Adam McCann, Operations Director at Pro-G Media. "The publication has gone from strength to strength since its launch in November 2004, and we hope to continue this momentum throughout 2007 and beyond."

Chris Bunyan, Director of Portal Management at Virgin Media added: "It's fantastic to have Pro-G as a partner; this content agreement illustrates our commitment to offering Virgin Media users a comprehensive and up-to-date resource for gaming information and recommendations."
