ESPN, Gas Station TV Offer Sports Programming at The Pump

Sports Fans Get Latest News and Info from the Sports World, Opportunity for Marketers to Engage at the Pump

DETROIT -- ESPN, the worldwide leader in sports, and Gas Station TV (GSTV), the leader in digital gas station media, announced today that GSTV has added ESPN content to its programming lineup. The agreement makes GSTV the first and only at-the-pump network to feature ESPN programming. GSTV is an IP-based digital television network that brings news, sports, weather and entertainment content to consumers on dual 20-inch LCD screens embedded in gas pumps in major markets across the country.

"Sports news and information is social currency, and sports fans expect ESPN to deliver the best in sports content and programming to them, wherever and whenever they are," said Matt Murphy, Digital Video Distribution, Disney and ESPN Media Networks. "This agreement offers another opportunity to deliver on that promise we make to sports fans."

Added David Leider, GSTV CEO, "We're driven to provide mobile consumers with the most dynamic and entertaining programming available, while continuously enhancing value for our advertisers and retail gas partners. As the proven leader in sports entertainment, ESPN engages consumers with relevant content that further enhances the experience we're creating for consumers at the pump. With the addition of ESPN, Gas Station TV is the most robust and results-driven media network of its kind available today."

ESPN content on GSTV will feature the latest sports news and information updates from around the sports landscape. The content will be ad-supported and updated daily.

ABC television and GSTV previously announced an agreement to deliver content from ABC News and ABC-owned and affiliated television stations such as local and national news, as well as local weather forecasts and traffic updates.

Expanding on the company's 2006 pilot launch, GSTV's alignment with ABC and ESPN for content, and partnerships with premiere gas retailers, uniquely positions the network for its large-scale national expansion.

GSTV's dual 20-inch LCD screens will be entertaining motorists who pump their gas in Chicago, New York and Los Angeles this June. They will join those in Atlanta, Dallas and Houston who have become audiences for the network's information and entertainment programming, and marketing messages that keep them engaged while they fill their tanks. GSTV broadcasts on over 1,000 screens in major metro areas. By year's end, sports fans and motorists will be enjoying GSTV on more than 6,000 screens in Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston, San Francisco, Detroit and Tampa/St. Petersburg, Miami, Orlando and Austin.
