SCI FI CHANNEL BECOMES FIRST TV NETWORK TO OFFER ORIGINAL VIDEO BLOG

'Battlestar Galactica' Executive Producer David Eick Gives Fans Exclusive Behind-the-Scenes Video Access to Season

SCIFI.COM Also to Stream Season One Cliffhanger Finale

NEW YORK -- June 28, 2005 -- SCIFI.COM, the official Web site of the SCI FI Channel, continues to pioneer innovative viewing experiences on the Internet. Just five months after it became the first television network to offer original content via podcasting technology, SCI FI now becomes the first television network to launch an exclusive video blog for one of its original series.

'Battlestar Galactica' Executive Producer David Eick will offer viewers an exclusive look behind-the-scenes of one of television's hottest new shows. Fresh 3-5 minute video blogs will be posted every few weeks, giving fans never before seen insights into the production of the hit show including candid moments with the series' stars. Visitors will be able to sit in on script meetings with writers and producers and meet other members of the crew and special effects team.

In anticipation of 'Battlestar Galactica's second season premiere, SCIFI.COM will also begin streaming season one's action filled finale episode, "Kobol's Last Gleaming, Part II." Battlestar's series premiere episode, "33," has been viewed more than 100,000 times on the site -- the most successful streaming event in SCIFI.COM history.

The video blog is just the latest of SCI FI's innovative online programming initiatives for the official 'Battlestar Galactica' site (www.scifi.com/battlestar). Furthering its commitment to exploring the imagination through viewer-based offerings, the site has been feeding into the insatiable fan appetite for all things Battlestar. To that end, SCIFI.COM has scored some impressive online numbers:

--Original podcast commentaries by executive producer Ronald D. Moore have been accessed by more than 150,000 times

--Moore's written blog has received nearly 1.5 million visits (347,000 unique visitors)

SCIFI.COM will continue to deliver exclusive online content throughout production of the second season, which premieres on SCI FI on Friday, July 15 @ 10pm ET/PT as part of the Channel's 'SCI FI Friday' night of original dramas.

SCIFI.COM (www.scifi.com) is the official site of the SCI FI Channel and the No. 1 science fiction destination on the Internet. In addition to in-depth information on Channel shows, the site covers the broad spectrum of sci-fi, from daily news and reviews to award-winning online series and original stories by today's top authors. SCIFI.COM is a "People's Choice" Webby Award winner and a Flash Forward Award winner. Stories published on SCIFI.COM have also earned two Nebula Awards and a World Fantasy Award. The site was launched in 1995 and is part of the SCI FI Channel program service of NBC Universal, one of the world's leading media and entertainment companies.
