CiiNOW, Inc.,^a leader in Cloud Gaming technology and branded gaming
platforms, today announced an agreement with Plug In Digital, an aggregator
and distributor of digital interactive entertainment, to add their full games
offering to CiiNOW’s robust content catalogue. Under the terms of the
agreement, titles such as, WRC FIA World Rally Championship 4, MotoGP™ 2013,
Puddle, and Hunter’s Trophy 2 – Europa will be offered by CiiNOW to its global
network of service provider and cable operator partners building a branded
Cloud Gaming service. The signed agreement with Plug In Digital demonstrates
CiiNOW’s ongoing support of the indie community of game publishers and
developers and CiiNOW’s commitment to enabling a quick and easy way to onboard
great indie content on a Cloud Gaming platform. In a related move, the company
also announced the launch of a new program accessible through
http://www.ciinow.com/indie inviting indie publishers to submit their games
for immediate review, and encourages all interested parties to apply.

“Our business partners are constantly looking to offer the most engaging and
in-demand games based on their customers’ unique demographics,” said Ron
Haberman, CEO and Co-Founder of CiiNOW, Inc. “Not only are Plug In Digital’s
titles consistently on that list, but they are a great example of the success
of our beta indie program. We are excited about the quality and type of games
which have been onboarded, the pipeline of highly anticipated titles to come,
and are thrilled Plug In Digital selected us as one of their Cloud Gaming
partners.”

enable gamers to enjoy their favorite titles on whatever device on which they
chose to play,” said Francis Ingrand, CEO of Plug In Digital. "With CiiNOW’s
ease of onboarding and seamless delivery of gameplay, we believe we have a
winning synergy to offer the best service and product to our gaming
customers.”

By partnering with CiiNOW and leveraging the company’s cloud-based technology,
Plug In Digital’s games will be delivered to virtually any device with a
screen, enabling game enthusiasts to enjoy the games instantly, without
waiting for downloads or software installations. Key to the selection of
CiiNOW as a Plug In Digital Cloud Gaming technology partner was the company’s
proven conquest over latency during gameplay. With CiiNOW’s proprietary
technology, Cumulus, the latency experienced playing games is significantly
less than that of consoles and other Cloud Gaming services.
