ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- January 8, 2014

NeuMovie, a digital platform that allows consumers to watch, rent, and
purchase movies, today announced that it has selected CSG Content Direct, the
leading end-to-end content monetization and management platform in the world,
as the exclusive NeuMovie go-to-market solution for all UltraViolet-based
solutions. CSG Content Direct will form the backbone of the NeuMovie online
storefront by supporting direct-to-consumer digital content and commerce
across multiple devices.

“Content Direct has become the global leader in UltraViolet implementation,
content monetization, and on-device applications,” said Kent Steffen,
president of CSG Content Direct. “The NeuMovie agreement highlights the demand
for UltraViolet’s international expansion and allows retailers to become
serious players in the digital-content delivery arena.”

CSG Content Direct brings many of Hollywood’s largest studios to market with
direct-to-consumer online storefronts. NeuMovie taps this expertise by
enabling the distribution of tangible in-store and online products with
digital features to a wide range of global retail outlets. These retailers can
then offer a broad range of high-profile movies, television shows, UltraViolet
digital copy redemption, robust digital lockers, and streaming and download
access to content in their physical stores and online. The end result is a
world-class, multidevice content experience that is powerful, engaging, and
simple to use.

“We’ve been diligently seeking a partner that can enable our clients to offer
the best available content streaming and downloading directly to their
consumers,” said Raffi DiBlasio, vice president of digital strategy and
operations at NeuMovie. “We were looking for a way to leverage non-traditional
retailers and e-tailers in the home entertainment arena, and CSG Content
Direct provides us with the best solution in the market.”

The NeuMovie platform and services provide a unique offering in the retail
digital market. NeuMovie’s proprietary marketing strategy and Content Direct’s
award-winning settlement and reporting tools allow retailers to participate in
cross-promotional revenue sharing. NeuMovie partners not only can track
downloads and purchases, but also can boost top- and bottom-line growth
through long-term loyalty reward programs and consumer-specific NeuMovie
purchases.

NeuMovie and Content Direct have set a high bar in terms of how and where
content is purchased, distributed, viewed, stored, and shared.
State-of-the-art technology supports a superior in-store and online customer
experience:

  *Up to five different users can be added to every account, allowing
    families and friends to share content through multiple user accounts and
    devices.
  *Sophisticated parental control features allow for access limits based on
    industry ratings for language, content, and more.
  *Major Hollywood studios support the platform, which means consumers have
    access to the latest available releases as they roll out.
