FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – January 21, 2014 – Selma, VA: In conjunction with
the launch of its Chinese channel, SimulTV will start the Chinese New Year with a bang as
a sponsor of the 15th Annual NYC Chinatown Lunar New Year Parade & Festival and
New Year’s Day Firecracker Ceremony & Cultural Festival. Organized by Better
Chinatown USA, this colorful spectacle features traditional lion and dragon dances,
beautiful floats, beauty queens, ice sculptures, marching bands and cultural performers
from across Asia. In 2014, the year of the horse, Lunar New Year falls on Friday January
31 and ends 15 days later.

The celebration’s theme, “Chinatown, New York City,” emphasizes the vital role
Chinatown plays in the city’s diversity, culture and economy. With a hub of the Chinese
population living in Chinatown and coming to celebrate the New Year, SimulTV knows it’s
an ideal time to inform the community of its services. Social networking and
communication are key elements in maintaining these long distance family relations, and
SimulTV hope to bridge that gap with the addition of its new Chinese Channel.

SimulTV will promote the addition of the Chinese channel, Huace, as part of its online
platform which combines live cable television, interactive video, social networks, text and
voice chat on one device. Subscribers can set a specific time to gather around their
individual computers or electronic devices to watch a Chinese program while
communicating with each other through social media without having to switch to another
electronic device.

Huace produces and distributes high-quality Chinese programs, which include several
films as well as over 600 television program episodes each year. Programming includes
modern series like “Symphony of Fate” or “I Want to Live,” idol series like “Blue Love,”
period series like “Love In a Fallen City,” or historic series like “Love Amongst War.”

“The Chinese community, especially those in the New York City area, is a significant part
of our global viewing audience,” commented Steve Turner, founder and CEO of SimulTV.
“We are honored to be of service in bringing people closer together while they share the
joys of watching real Chinese programs.”
