NBC.COM EXTENDS PROGRAM REACH ONLINE AS NEW INDEPENDENT RESEARCH SHOWS THAT 78 PERCENT OF REWIND USERS WATCH EPISODES MISSED ON BROADCAST TELEVISION

Data Also Shows NBC Rewind Audience Builds On NBC Primetime's Upscale Audience By Skewing Younger, More Male and Higher Educated Than General Internet Users

BURBANK, Calif. - January 31, 2007 - NBC.com today announced new research findings for users of its NBC Rewind full-length episode video player. A full 78 percent of its online users have watched an episode they had missed on broadcast television, expanding the reach of NBC Entertainment programming on the Net. Further, 26 percent have re-watched an episode after watching the broadcast and 34 percent used the online player to watch a show they had never seen before. In addition, Rewind users built upon NBC Primetime's already upscale audience by skewing younger, more male and higher educated than average television and internet audiences.

The announcements were made by Jeff Gaspin, President NBC Universal Cable Entertainment, Digital Content and Cross Network Strategy.

"Our viewers responded strongly to the streaming video on our site," said Gaspin. "Contrary to conventional wisdom, consumers are ready to watch long-form entertainment on the web and we plan on making more available. We're especially encouraged by this research and believe that we've only seen the tip of the iceberg on this new platform."

Since NBC Rewind's debut on October 1, 2006, 6.9 million unique users have streamed nearly 42 million full-episode videos. The average time spent per visit in December 2006 averaged 35 minutes for NBC Rewind -- the third straight month the figure had increased. Usage of NBC Rewind helped make NBC.com the number one broadcast network website in December 2006 and the third ranking television site overall, behind AOL TV and MSN TV and ahead of Yahoo!TV and ABC.com, according to comScore Media Metrix.

From an advertising perspective, 81 percent recall the pre-roll ads after two or more exposures. And 72 percent agree that Rewind ads are less disruptive than traditional advertising while over 40 percent agree that ads are easy to remember, seamlessly integrated and caught their attention. More than 60 percent of users always watch the full episode when viewing in on Rewind.

In addition to full episodes of "Heroes," "30 Rock," "Friday Night Lights," "Las Vegas," "Studio 60" and "My Name Is Earl," NBC.com will be making more episodes of its programming available for streaming in 2007, including selected episodes of "Grease: You're The One That I Want" and "The Apprentice."

Insight Express provided the independent research study.
