Programming Set To Include Mainstream Icons Such As “Superman,” “Betty Boop” And “The Lucy Show” Episodes Available On Demand; Will Be Available Through Online Channels And Soon-To-Be Launched Set-Top Box

Hollywood, CA & Singapore – April 11, 2006 – Amaru Inc. (AMRU) and its Hollywood-based subsidiary, M2B World Inc., have jointly announced that they will offer one of the largest libraries of classic Hollywood films and American cartoons available to viewers around the globe via their on-demand broadband channels. The announcement is the first in a series of content acquisition deals that the brand has signed in its goal to offer the most diverse and consumer appealing library of on-demand entertainment available via broadband.

Viewers will be able to watch extremely recognizable programs, featuring Hollywood royalty such as John Travolta, Anthony Hopkins, Shirley Temple and Charlie Chaplin over M2B’s expansive Global Broadband TV package. As M2B launches the Global Broadband TV platform later this year, the programming will be available via their wide range of channels offered on its cutting-edge Set-Top Box. M2B will host a comprehensive selection of the most watched cartoons and comedy in entertainment history – “Superman,” “Betty Boop,” “Popeye,” and “The Three Stooges”  - to name just a few of the immensely popular titles available in a continually growing on-demand library. Currently, this M2B classic library holds over 3,000 titles that span every interest, including Hollywood films, foreign films, horror, comedy and animation, which combined have the ability to hold appeal to every viewer around the world.

Presently, a selection of the content is available online over M2B’s high quality, well-mastered delivery platform through its worldwide broadband streaming sites Shine8 (www.shine8.com) and Jump29 (www.jump29.com).  Both sites, which have been continually growing over the last five years,  consist of multiple broadband streaming channels that are advertising based and are therefore offered at no cost to the viewer.

The acquired libraries are a reflection of the brand’s promise to deliver unique content and responds directly to consumer demand for Hollywood-based entertainment that fits within a mobile lifestyle. In an independent study recently conducted by Amaru Inc., nearly 60% of US-based respondents indicated that they were interested in the ability to access programming in the Classic/Previously Released Hollywood Titles genre via broadband. With this significant interest by viewers in mind, M2B has actively acquired the content to satisfy that need.

“Our position has always been that we will both listen to and anticipate what our viewers are seeking in their entertainment choices,” said Rebecca Binny, General Manager of M2B World Inc. “This lineup of content has been widely popular with viewers over the years. We believe that our audience will repeatedly be drawn back to our channels to once again enjoy and experience their all-time favorite programs from the past.”
