Two Way TV Inc. has a new CEO following its recently completed merger with
Interactive Network.

Piers Wilson, who has been chief financial officer for Two Way TV Ltd., the
company's British parent, was named to the top executive spot. He will continue
his CFO duties for Two Way TV Ltd. as he takes over the American subsidiary.

He replaces Bruce Bauer, who is stepping up as the chairman of the board at
Two Way. Robert Regan will continue his role as chief operating officer and
president of the new merged operation.

Two Way also announced the North American launch of its 'Ark' technology
lineup, which provides a cross-platform software package for authoring and
broadcasting enhanced-TV applications. The technology is already launched in the
United Kingdom on British Broadcasting Corp., Channel 4, Sky Sports and
Challenge TV.

The company has also licensed elements of its Ark technology to Liberate
Technologies.

'Interactive television in the United Kingdom is currently about 18 months
ahead of the United States, and Piers has played a pivotal role in putting Two
Way TV at the center of the industry here,' Two Way TV Ltd. CEO Matthew Tims
said in a prepared statement.

'He will ensure that Two Way TV U.S. is able to maximize the patented
technology and huge expertise that we have built up in this area and help U.S.
networks to deploy the best enhanced interactivity available as the industry
grows there,' Tims added.
