  1. 1. Global Media Ventures a proposal to Gerard Ange Ed Shapiro Charles Rudkin September 12, 2003 Global Media Ventures, LLC 9000 Crow Canyon Road Suite S, #221 Danville, California 94506
  2. 2. Overview WIN-TV wants to launch a 24-hour channel of content, marketing, events and transactions in 2004, centered on the culture, lifestyle, entertainment and information of the world’s indigenous peoples, with an emphasis on the Native American population. WIN-TV believes it can develop sufficient, quality content and is looking for help with funding, distribution, marketing, branding, channel development, production, transmission, sponsorship and merchandising. Global Media Ventures wants to partner with the WIN-TV team to help its founder and team to realize its dream. Background Global Media Ventures (GMV) has reviewed WIN-TV’s initial business plan, financials and video material, has met with the founders and reviewed the supporting presentation materials. GMV is strongly convinced that the Channel’s core category is a strong and a highly differentiated one. There is clearly no media, marketing and merchandising brand in the space and it appears no vehicle to more creatively and effectively accomplish the WIN- TV mission. The opportunity exists to plan, develop, launch and effectively manage such a worldwide media organization. We have considered the vision and strategy you have shared with us as well as given the opportunity considerable thought. We believe there needs to be discussion about the size, attitudes and behaviors of the target audience, distribution platform opportunities, staging and realities, funding strategy, available content quality, quantity and packaging, production needs and transmission assumptions, GMV believes that it can be a valuable, asset-delivering partner to WIN-TV and can provide deep industry experience, funding, greater speed to market, accelerate its development, launch and scale and minimize expenses. This will allow The Channel to focus primarily on content and strategic core category development, the high value areas that are unique to its efforts and which provide the foundation for the services GMV can provide. In this way, WIN-TV will be better-poised to maximize the potential of its plan and to be the success it intends. Lastly, the GMV team is dedicated to and experienced with like-minded, global, positive, pro-social humanitarian media ventures and shares the vision and passion with the WIN- TV team.
  3. 3. Strategy GMV proposes to leverage a unique team of leading, experienced media and entertainment industry executives from within the business areas in which GMV is focused. GMV desires to become a partner with WIN-TV to help it to realize its potential through providing overall business and management consulting, distribution assets, sponsorship expertise, funding, content advisory, commerce and operational services. For its participation, GMV proposes that it receives equity in the business, a management fee, success-based distribution fees, a success-based commission on any funding it secures and success-based commissions on the revenues it brings to the business. Recommendations We are suggesting that we enter into an agreement to provide the services referenced above. We will provide ongoing management services within GMV’s select portfolio of media, marketing and merchandising brands. These brands have their foundation in television “channels” and combine highly successful, proven, traditional media and entertainment business models together with a strong ability to monetize increasing personal media behavior through video on demand, broadband and interactive television platforms as they develop. We will work with you to determine the best strategy and execution of securing distribution, both domestically and internationally. As we have shared, this needs to be well thought-out and staged in a reasonable way. As part of the overall distribution effort, GMV may be in a position to provide valuable distribution itself in 2004, on a less-than 24-hour-basis, to 25,000,000 US households. GMV believes it can leverage MediaOne Services for technical and operational and additional production activities and a team of industry professionals to get behind the plan. Proposal GMV proposes to begin working with WIN-TV as of October 1, 2003, for an initial 1- year period. We will consider the time spent in the past as an in-kind contribution. We love the project and love the potential.
