NBC UNIVERSAL DIGITAL ENTERTAINMENT ANNOUNCES NEW PARTNERSHIP WITH DOVE(R) BEAUTY BRAND

Marks First Mobile Cross-Property Deal Across Integrated Marketing Platforms

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. October 29, 2010 - NBC Universal Digital Entertainment, NBC Universal Digital Sales and Dove(R), the leading personal care brand, formally announce the formation of a new mobile entertainment portal for women - Dove Good2Go. Dove is NBC Universal's inaugural partner in the creation of its first-ever cross-property mobile destination. This strategic partnership creates a platform that will service and attract a female audience seeking mobile entertainment on-the-go. During the year long partnership Good2Go introduces a wide scope of integrated marketing platforms that includes a robust mobile entertainment experience with customized digital content from NBC.com, oxygen.com, bravotv.com, accesshollywood.com and iVillage.

Dove Good2Go is available to approximately 34MM* female smartphone users and will provide content in a customized and editorially crafted way that fits the mobile space. Content includes video short clips, highlights, interviews, how-to tips, advice, photo galleries and more.

Content will continue to rotate throughout the entire year.

This includes a trip to LA and chance to attend to a red carpet movie premiere from "Access Hollywood," a shopping spree in New York courtesy of iVillage, a trip to attend fashion week (February 2011) with Style by Bravo and more.

The announcement was made by Vivi Zigler, President, NBC Universal Digital Entertainment, Peter Naylor, Executive Vice President, NBC Universal Digital Media Sales, Rob Candelino, Marketing Director, Personal Wash US, Unilever and Ritu Trivedi, Managing Director, Digital, Mindshare.
