LodgeNet On-Demand Lineup Continues to Grow

23rd Jun 2004

LodgeNet Entertainment Corporation
today announced the results of recent efforts in expanding its on- demand
content offerings to satisfy an increasingly broad range of guest
demographics: Vacationers looking for quality family time in the room can tune in to
Disney Channel On Demand, which premiered June 1 in more than 415,000
LodgeNet served guest rooms across the United States. As the result of an
agreement announced last month, LodgeNet will be offering series from the
Channel’s Playhouse Disney programming block for preschoolers such as
“JoJo’s Circus” and “Stanley”, as well as Disney Channel Original Movies
and original series for kids and tweens including “Lizzie McGuire”,
“That’s So Raven”, and “Kim Possible”. New Disney Channel On Demand
programming will be distributed each month. - Travelers who bring their
domestic interests with them - even when they’re on the road—will want
to check in to one of the more than 2,100 LodgeNet served hotels now
offering on-demand “lifestyle” programming from Scripps Networks.
Through LodgeNet’s TV Unlimited service, guests can catch up on previously aired
episodes of popular series from Home & Garden Television, DIY, Food
Network, and Fine Living. LodgeNet launched the Scripps entertainment
lineup on June 1. - Fans of CourtTV are finding it easier than ever at
LodgeNet served hotels now that the network’s programming has been given
its own sub- category on LodgeNet’s TV Unlimited menu. Guests can enjoy
episodes from some of CourtTV’s most popular investigation series
including “I Detective” and “Dominick Dunne.”

All Disney Channel On Demand, Scripps and CourtTV programming is enhanced
with the pause, skip and save functionality of LodgeNet’s On-Screen

Additionally, LodgeNet announced the addition of several new “casino
style” games to its TV GameRoom(SM) lineup. The games—which use a point
balance method in a risk free environment—include Blackjack, Slots,
Video Poker, Caribbean Poker and Roulette, and can be played using the
LodgeNet remote control.

“These recent initiatives are all part of a comprehensive effort to
bolster our content lineup in anticipation of the summer travel season,”
said Steve Truckenmiller, Senior Vice President Programming & Content
Management for LodgeNet. “Now, travelers of all ages and interests have
more entertainment than ever before to enjoy in LodgeNet served rooms
across the country.”
