DMX MUSIC AND MAINSTREAM DATA EXPAND RELATIONSHIP, SIGN AGREEMENT FOR SATELLITE DISTRIBUTION IN NORTH AMERICA

Los Angeles, California and Salt Lake City, Utah - October 24, 2004

Mainstream Data, Inc., a leading global network solutions provider, today announced that it has entered into a multi-year agreement with DMX MUSIC, Inc., the world’s leading provider of business music and messaging services, to distribute several of DMX MUSIC’s satellite-based digital audio services in North America.

Under the terms of the agreement, Mainstream Data will provide equipment, transmission services, and advanced network monitoring to DMX MUSIC for the distribution of 12 digital audio satellite channels. These channels will be transmitted from Mainstream’s uplink facilities in the high desert of Salt Lake City, Utah, an ideal location because of its isolation from extreme weather—including torrential rain storms, tornadoes, and hurricanes—that plague other teleport facilities in North America.

Nick Wilson, Chief Technology Officer of DMX MUSIC said, "DMX MUSIC has been looking for a way to increase the strength of our signal by decreasing potential interference from weather, with the ultimate goal of improving overall customer satisfaction. After extensive review of all North American satellite service providers, DMX MUSIC selected Mainstream Data because of the depth and breadth of experience it has in providing satellite distribution services, the extraordinary network availability of its Salt Lake City uplink, and their overall ability to reduce our costs."

"We are delighted to expand the range of services that we provide to DMX MUSIC," said Scott Calder, President and CEO of Mainstream Data. "We have provided more than 50,000 music, messaging, and data-capable satellite receivers to DMX MUSIC since our companies’ first collaborative efforts in 1990, and we are thrilled to be expanding the relationship to include transmission services."
