MobiTV Executive To Keynote At
Fall Focus: Making Media Meaningful

Dallas, TX November 4, 2005 — Parks Associates announced today that David Whetstone, Chief Marketing Officer at MobiTV, Inc. (formerly known as Idetic, Inc.), will present the morning keynote, “Mobile TV: Content on Consumers’ Terms,” at Fall Focus: Making Media Meaningful on Friday, November 11, at 9:00 a.m.

Fall Focus, an executive conference hosted by leading market analysts Parks Associates, features leading executives and analysts examining the changing market dynamics in the digital content and distribution industries. Fall Focus: Making Media Meaningful will be held Nov 9-11, 2005, at the Fairmont San Jose.

“We look forward to contributing to next week’s Fall Focus conference and sharing our expertise in the areas of mobile television, digital music and made-for-mobile content,” said Jason Taylor, Director of Corporate Communications at MobiTV.

Research from Parks Associates indicates a small but dedicated segment of consumers will drive the early market for video content and live TV services on portable and mobile platforms. Mobile Entertainment Platforms & Services, featuring a survey of more than 2,000 U.S. Internet users, found 13% of those who own one or more portable devices would like to see capabilities for live TV integrated into these devices. The majority of these consumers belong to a consumer segment dubbed Mobile Aficionados, which consists of more than 40 million Internet users.
