SiTV has secured distribution agreements with Time Warner Cable and Cox
Communications Inc. for its launch Feb. 25.

An English-language, Latino-themed service aimed at young Hispanics and
multicultural audiences, SiTV will have access to a base of 18 million cable
homes via the carriage deals, co-chairman Jeff Valdez said.

The fledgling service already had a distribution pact with EchoStar
Communications Corp. for placement on Dish Network’s "America’s Top 150" program
package.

SiTV also said AOL Time Warner Inc.’s Opportunity Investment Fund is
currently in discussions about a potential equity investment in the
network.
