To make things even easier for consumers, the company has partnered with the
world's leading consumer electronics makers for M-GO to be available as a
preloaded service on the hottest new smart devices from Intel, Samsung and
Vizio – with new partnerships to be brought to market in 2013 with LG
Electronics and RCA. To get started, consumers simply need to open a web
browser through Chrome, Safari, Internet Explorer or Firefox – and type in
www.mgo.com. M-GO is also available as a free download from the Google Play
Android app store.

M-GO today also debuted a new licensing agreement with Starz Digital further
expanding its ever-growing content library. With M-GO, consumers can catch the
freshest new movies the same day as the DVD release – including such
blockbusters as Dark Knight Rises, The Iron Lady andTed. They can also buy or
rent individual episodes or full seasons of hit TV shows like The Walking
Dead, Glee, Modern Family and Spartacus as well as choose from a deep
catalogue of hidden gems and classic favorites. The company has already landed
direct content licensing agreements with the world's leading studios, content
creators and distributors including DreamWorks Animation, NBCUniversal,
Paramount Pictures, Relativity Media, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment,
Twentieth Century Fox, Warner Bros. Digital Distribution - with additional
content deals already in development.

Not just another media store; M-GO is an entertainment service and resource,
aimed at becoming consumers' first stop for finding and watching satisfying
entertainment content – whether or not they rent or buy from M-GO. With such a
robust and constantly expanding library of the newest releases and deep
catalogue of hits, the company is confident that it will be able to gratify
even the most discerning consumer searches. However, M-GO is so committed to
taking the hassle out of getting great digital entertainment quickly and
easily, that it is going further - if M-GO doesn't have the content, it will
help people find it on other media stores including Amazon, iTunes, Netflix
and Vudu. M-GO also enhances viewing and entertainment discovery by providing
movie trailers, critic reviews from Rotten Tomatoes, Cast and Crew images,
filmographies and more – which provide a rich second-screen experience.

"The unfulfilled promise of 'Entertainment Everywhere' for years has left many
wondering if they can get entertainment anywhere. Despite advances in
technology and tons of film and TV choices, it still takes more effort than it
should to find something satisfying to watch when and how consumers want it,"
said John Batter, CEO of M-GO. "Consumers have become used to cobbling their
entertainment options together in order to get a slightly satisfying
experience -- switching from DVRs to subscription services to cable to media
stores take time and effort which takes away from the ability to just sit back
and enjoy. At M-GO, we believe consumers deserve a better, simpler, easier,
more people-friendly experience and we are on a mission to deliver it – think
of us as your Entertainment Wingman."

M-GO Takes User-Friendly to a Higher Standard – "People-Friendliest"

At M-GO, being the people-friendliest way to experience entertainment means:

  oUnlike other streaming and media stores, M-GO goes further. Beyond
    delivering spot-on search results and insightful recommendations, M-GO has
    a stable of entertainment experts to curate the content and help cut
    through the clutter to get the entertainment that is just right for each
    person.
  oCreating a simplified experience with our E.A.P.^TM (Easy As Pie)
    interface – which groups genres and categories such as "New Releases,"
    "Featured," "M-GO Picks," "Deals," and "Your Library" into a patented
    visual display giving viewers an easier way to discover great content to
    watch the same day as the DVD release for many movies or the day after
    programs air for most network TV shows.
  oAn "Admin" can create up to five additional profiles per account and the
    "Watch List" feature so that each member of the household gets tailored
    recommendations, set spending limits, and their own wish list of movies &
    TV shows they may want to watch later.
  oPaying only for what each individual really wants to watch. M-GO does not
    lock people into ongoing subscription fees or require them to buy
    additional hardware.
  oM-GO supports multiple digital lockers including UltraViolet, a digital
    rights authentication and home entertainment industry standard that lets
    consumers safely and securely download and stream their purchased movies
    and TV shows via a cloud-based entertainment collection for viewing on TV
    screens, personal computers, tablets and mobile phones.
  oWe've-got-your-back customer support. Real people who speak human (not
    tech or geek speak) available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
