Intertainment's KNCTR Breaks Major Milestone


June 9, 2011 - New York, New York, San Mateo, California And Toronto, Ontario

Intertainment Media Inc. ("Intertainment" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: INT)(OTCQX: ITMTF)(FRANKFURT: I4T) announces that its desktop app KNCTR® (pronounced "Connector") - www.knctr.com a key program of Intertainment's wholly owned division itiBiti Systems Inc. (www.itibiti.com) broke through a milestone level in its short existence to see its total North American unique user installations surpass the 750,000 mark.

KNCTR® saw over 86,000 unique installations throughout North America over the previous week period and the program steadfastly continues to be an integral part of more users' daily digital routine seeing an increase to over 13.45 minutes of daily active user engagement. The active user engagement continues to make the premium advertising supported KNCTR® model a key tool that features video content, integration of social media and the ability to make FREE long distance phone calls to cell phones and land lines to anywhere in North America.

With the recent strategic acquisition of Deal Frenzy.com®, Intertainment Media is now positioned to deliver even greater value for its shareholders through its ability to vertically integrate its divisional offerings and increase the revenue opportunities within each. Soon KNCTR® users will have the opportunity to take part in the incredible offers that the Deal Frenzy.com® platform will be offering.

KNCTR® is the next generation of social communication and entertainment applications that allows users to aggregate their social media(s) and voice services into one location on their desktop. Unlike Skype, the telephone feature on KNCTR® is completely free to the consumer allowing FREE local and long distance calls to mobile phones and land lines. KNCTR® is a premium advertising model that allows for branded sponsorship, pre-roll and display advertising opportunities for brands and service providers alike.

With the projected impact that tablets will have on the personal computing space, with over 50 million units to be sold within the next two years in North America alone, KNCTR® is positioned to enhance the functionality and usability of these devices by allowing them to become a fully functioning phone unit.

"KNCTR® is delivering exceptional week over week growth in its installation base." said Brad Parry, CMO Intertainment Media Inc., "And the level of engagement that KNCTR® continues to experience on daily basis continues to see it being a core part of the consumer's daily digital habit."

The level of engagement and sharing is notable as we continue to see KNCTR® becoming a core element in the consumer's daily digital habit."

Notably, the itiBiti desktop app has been hailed by Microsoft Corp. as "the next generation of integrated social media applications - easy, scalable and fun."
