Los Angeles, CA - August 21, 2006 -Fox Digital Media today announced the launch of "FOX on Demand" on the MyFOX Local websites of nine (9) local FOX owned and operated stations. This historic offering marks the first time local stations will stream network programming on their local websites.

Taking advantage of the MyFOX Local platform and revolutionary video player created by Fox Interactive Media's (FIM) Stations Group, Fox Digital Media will offer free, sponsor-supported streaming of select episodes of several hit FOX series, including "Prison Break," "Bones," "American Dad," "The Loop," and "Stacked." Viewers in New York, Los Angeles, Boston, Dallas, Washington, Tampa Bay, Orlando, Birmingham and Greensboro now have the ability to tune in to FOX shows anytime on their local station's MyFOX websites.

Toyota is the exclusive sponsor of the launch of "FOX on Demand" in these nine local markets. Initially, the service will offer select episodes of FOX series from previous seasons and new episodes from returning series "Prison Break" and "Bones," following their initial airing on FOX this fall.

"With this deal, Toyota is supporting another groundbreaking media platform on behalf of our new subcompact vehicle, the Toyota Yaris," said Kim McCullough, Corporate Manager, Marketing Communications, Toyota. "Just as the Yaris makes great design accessible to all, this initiative makes everyone's favorite FOX shows more accessible whenever and wherever they want to watch them."

FIM and Fox Stations Group have integrated user-generated content including blogs and photos into key local content categories on the station web sites. Now, 9 of these station websites will offer access to FOX programs through a state-of-the-art video playback experience.

"We are pleased to work with our owned and operated broadcast station partners to distribute FOX content through their local websites," said Peter Levinsohn, President of Fox Digital Media.
