Intertainment Media Inc. ("Intertainment" or the "Company") (TSX
VENTURE: INT)(OTCQX: ITMTF)(FRANKFURT: I4T) is pleased to announce
its partnership with Los Angeles, CA based, premier communications
specialists, PUB 1917, to enhance their current and future digital
production and corporate communications programs primarily for the
automotive industry. Intertainment will provide production services
and Intertainment's Live & Global platform "Powered by Ortsbo" will
increase the ability to reach North American multi-language teams and

product education and specialized webcasts for automotive and
commercial clients such as KIA, Hyundai, Lexus and Toyota. PUB 1917
clients also include Mercedes, Honda, Jaguar, Intel, Alcoa, Sony

for the automotive companies to introduce new models and specialized
features to their dealers and staff and to enable interactive
communications between their audience and in-studio specialists in
design and engineering.
Sensing a growing need to broaden the audience internationally, PUB
1917 immediately saw the advantages of using Intertainment's
interactive technology to reach a broader audience. This technology,
which has been used successfully in the Entertainment and Sports
industry for Variety, KISS, Disney, IndyCar, Dreamworks, Fox, Yahoo!,
MSN and other leading providers allows users and brands to interact
in real time in over 65 languages, and provides all the production
components to create an online real-time event. The Live & Global
platform affords all viewers the ability to engage the experts by
asking questions in their native language and having the question and
reply immediately understood by all viewers. Intertainment will also
provide specialized technology and web sites for pre-event
registration to allow interactive communication during the event, as
well as "Dashboards" that provide real time analytics during and
after the broadcast.
PUB 1917 is managed by its co-founders Bruce Birch and Ramon P.
Montoya who issued the following joint statement: "Intertainment will
provide us with the missing link for real time interactive corporate
communications. Finally, our clients can go beyond the English
speaking audience and create an interactive, engaging, ONE WORLD

additional suite of services will contribute to a new and expanding
portion of our business."
