  3. 3. WIN-TV: BUSINESS PRESENTATION PAGE 3 WIN-TV: THE VISION § WIN-TV -- the World Indigenous Network -- is a twenty-four hour digital programming television network and online portal being created to serve as a cross cultural platform among and between both North America’s Native Peoples (as well as the world’s indigenous populations) and the larger American viewing public. § WIN-TV will offer high-quality programming focusing on Native issues and exploiting well-known Native talent, but using popular formats and techniques to appeal to a larger television viewership. § strategy is to become the online nexus for Native Americans (as well as for indigenous people throughout the world) and especially those non-Native peoples interested in the Native Experience. As the Native American portal, it will become a leading source of information, services, e-commerce and the building of an online community. § WIN-TV will exploit a multi-stream revenue model which, by Year Three, will help the Company achieve projected revenues of over $100 million § WIN-TV is employing a tried and proven business model to achieve its long-term objective of becoming a successful television network. WIN-Tv is a diversified, growth-oriented media company operating a first-of-its-kind nationwide digital television network complimented by ancillary online, video, publishing, merchandising and retail enterprises. Inspired by The Discovery Network, which, according to The Washington Post(1),, is considered to be one of the top 16 privately- held companies in the U.S., with a net worth in excess of $10 billion, WIN-Tv forged a similar business model, configured with multiple revenue streams, to create a solid potential for future rapid growth and success. § In Addition, WIN-Tv is supported by a ethnically based business model represented by such successful “niche” services as BET (Black Entertainment Network) as well as Telemundo and Univision: BET was acquired by Viacom for $3 billion in 2000- 2001; Telemundo was acquired by NBC/GE for $2.6 billion in 2001-2002; and Univision is currently valued at $6.4 billion. These ethnically based media models are currently is experiencing rapid growth, which generates additional billions of dollars in gross earnings per year. CONFIDENTIAL 3

  5. 5. WIN-TV: BUSINESS PRESENTATION PAGE 5 D. Education & Community Service Programming § Kids Korner -- Children’s programming; § Medicine Wheel -- Straight talk about health-related issues facing Native America; § Natural Resources -- Contact information for Native America; PROGRAMMING § The Internet and World Wide Web are unique vehicles by which WIN-TV can fulfill its mission to become a cross cultural platform among and between both North America’s Native Peoples (as well as the world’s indigenous populations) and the larger American public. §’s “portal” plan is based on the following elements: § Have links to other Native American online sites, be it to a regional nation or tribe, the Bureau of Indian Affairs, university departments or social service agencies. § Provide WIN-TV’s program schedule and provide commentary on its shows; viewer feedback will be encouraged – helping develop WIN-TV into a truly two-way, “interactive” television network. § Will launch an online moderated “interview” service – a meet-the-star format show with an online/call-in Q&A component – to accompany WIN-TV live entertainment specials. § Develop, test and implement an eCommerce service that follows the print-published catalog model established by the Sundance Institute and others that have “discovered” (appropriated?) Native arts and crafts sales;’s eCommerce effort will be based on a policy of “Responsible Commerce” will serve the Native artists, craftsperson and others whose works will be available through the service. § Will host moderated and unmoderated chat rooms and message boards for the development of multiple, simultaneous discussions and community engagement. WIN-TV AUDIENCE § WIN-TV has targeted two distinct audiences: a “core” audience of the Native American people in North America and a “general” audience constituted of “Cultural Creative”. § WIN-TV’s “core” audience is characterized as follows: § Native America is a people of 553 officially recognized nations, tribes and cultures (and still other not-officially recognized tribes) that is scattered throughout North America. § In 1999, the Native population was estimated at 2.4 million; it is projected to grow to 3.1 million by 2020. Native Peoples are divided evenly between cities and rural areas, thus CONFIDENTIAL 5
  6. 6. WIN-TV: BUSINESS PRESENTATION PAGE 6 perfect for satellite service. Significant numbers are located in most major markets, including New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle and Phoenix. WIN-TV will help knit together this community. § The nation’s 2.4 million Native Americans (including Eskimos and Aleuts) have seen their buying power rise from $19.2 billion in 1990 to $34.8 billion in 2001, an increase of 81% in eleven years, or a compound annual rate of growth of 5.5%. The 1990-2001 percentage gain is much greater than the increases in buying power projected both for both whites (67.4%) and for the U.S. population as a whole (70.4%). § WIN-TV’s “general” audience is characterized as follows: § The “Cultural Creatives” was first analyzed by the sociologist Paul H. Ray in a massive study involving 200,000 survey responses conducted during the 1990s, this psycho- demographic category of American c onsumers has received extensive validation and media attention. § In 1997, “Cultural Creatives” numbered 44 million adults (representing 24 percent) and by 2000 it topped 50 million adults. § Cultural Creatives are characterized by people into environmentalism, feminism, spiritualism and a thoughtful life. They are dispersed though-out the country (all though more in West), relatively affluent and include more women then men (6:4). Equally important, they are suspicious of traditional media because they feel that the media do not meet their needs. They believe that most of the media is materialistic and relying on heavily-edited, highly over-produced and simplistic programs. Creatives tend to be more discriminating (and often more loyal) viewers, information junkies, looking for more complex, nuances and more “authentic” productions. WIN-TV LAUNCH & ROLL-OUT STRATEGY WIN-TV plans to employ a two -year launch and roll-out § Year One – § WIN-TV is poised to be launched on EchoStar’s DBS Dish Network which reaches 8 million households; § WIN-TV will be made available to analog CATV systems in select markets where there is a significant Native American population. § Year Two – § WIN-TV will expand its presence on DBS by broadcasting on DirecTV service and reaching an additional 12 million households, thus reaching a total of 20 million households; § WIN-TV will seek to increase the number of analog CATV systems that will carry its programming; CONFIDENTIAL 6
  7. 7. WIN-TV: BUSINESS PRESENTATION PAGE 7 § WIN-TV will seek to have its programming available over CATV’s increasing number of digital channels; § WIN-TV plans to release a number of “signature” programs, most notably its live entertainment shows, on homevideo/DVD. * By the end of Year Two, WIN-TV will be fully operational and projects that it will reach over 30 million television households. WIN-Tv MULTI-STREAM REVENUE STRATEGY WIN-TV Corp. is adopting a multi-steam revenue model to achieve long-term financial profitability. Through its initial two -year launch and roll-out phase, it plans to exploit four revenue streams; in time, others will surely be considered and adopted. The initial four revenue streams are: (1) on-air advertising, (2) on-air infomercials, (3) ancillary products and (4) Web revenues. § On-Air Advertising -- key factors of WIN-TV’s advertising strategy include: § Advertising rates are based on audience reach – “eyeball” count! -- and WIN-TV will aggressively move to extend its coverage from its initial launch on EchoStar’s Dish Network and select analog cable serves, to DirecTV and national digital cable outlets. § WIN-TV will exploit a very generous incentive pricing plan (to as much as 50%–70% discounted) to attract initial advertisers. § WIN-TV will continue to price its rates at just below the market norm, but this will still be profitable. § On-Air a Two hour daily in house Shop-at-Home production. The key factors of WIN-TV’s strategy include: § WIN-TV will run long-form, 120- minute program segments that feature culture-, music -, arts- and crafts-people and will use intermittent quot;soft pitchesquot; to promote and sell objects. WIN-TV will avoid employing the “hard sell' format and will emphasis on Native § American products that are content rich in order to build up the “feel good’ aspect and that appeal to both the network’s “core” and “general” audiences, especially to the highly-coveted “Cultural Creatives.” § WIN-TV will produce a daily two hour Shop-at-Home production and will seek to offer Native American products, are in tune with the new buying habits of “smart” shopping, that reflect cause-related marketing and they are associated with “corporate conscience” programs. CONFIDENTIAL 7
  8. 8. WIN-TV: BUSINESS PRESENTATION PAGE 8 § Ancillary Product Offerings -- key factors of WIN-TV’s ancillary products strategy include: § WIN-TV will introduce a line of products that are either branded or co-branded using an existing independent label as the partner. These offerings will leverage WIN-TV’s intellectual property assets. § The ancillary product line that is currently anticipated will likely include (1) DVD/homevideos and CDs based on on-air programming specials, including live entertainment shows, historical specials and Native American cultural profiles; and (2) special cultural and craft objects-of-art, books and other products that appropriately reflect the Native Experience. § Working with a partner takes the full burden of order processing, customer services, warehousing and other functions off WIN-TV’s shoulders. WIN-TV will make a serious commitment to heavy on-air promotion and will employ an average 10 percent royalty fee against gross product sales. § Online Revenue -- key factors of WIN-TV’s online strategy include: § will exploit two online revenue opportunities -- (1) advertising and (2) e-commerce. § Advertising revenues will be sought from both (a) banner ads and (b) in- stream advertising: § WIN-TV will employ traditional banner ads in prominent locations on the web site. Rates will be based on accepted standards, currently range from $10 to $25 per CPM. § WIN-TV will employ “pre-roll” ads that appear in the user’s video window prior to requested content stream. “Pre-roll” ads are hyperlinked so that users can simply click on the screen to call up the sponsor’s web site while continuing to receive the streaming content; rates currently range from $10 to $25 CPM. § e-Commerce revenue will be derived from, for Year-One, on the domestic US Native marketplace; Year-Two efforts will expand to the global indigenous marketplace. Key factors related to this rollout plan include: § Royalty rates for all transactions will be set at 10% -- this is significantly below the 15% rate charged by, for example, Amazon and other web retailers. § Customer purchases will be managed through established credit-card authorization mechanisms; customers will be encouraged to set up pre-approved accounts to facilitate spontaneous purchases and to receive bonus incentives on future purchases.
