Zeros & Ones and ICTV Form Strategic Alliance in Broadband Technology and Content

Zeros & Ones, Inc. to Provide Technology Solutions and Additional Broadband Content to ICTV Digital Platform

LOS ANGELES -- February 14, 2000 -- Zeros & Ones, Inc. (OTCBB: ZOZO), a leading broadband technology and content provider, and ICTV, provider of the cable industry's most robust solution for delivery of broadband Internet TV services to digital set-tops, today announced the formation of a strategic alliance in which Zeros & Ones will provide proprietary technology solutions as well as design services and cutting-edge interactive broadband content to ICTV and its cable system operator clients.

The alliance fosters the eventual deployment of Zeros & Ones' real time digital television broadcasting innovations, like CinePEG, a revolutionary, motion-based video compression. It also provides a distribution channel for the company's Internet-based, real-time 3D games, and exploits Zeros & Ones' broadband design expertise in the creation of next-generation interactive television interfaces. These technologies will complement ICTV's digital architecture, which raises the standard in supporting new broadband services to television sets, and enhances the rich media experience for cable TV subscribers.

"With its powerful new platform, ICTV offers content providers a highest-common-denominator environment; one that offers true, media-rich, broadband experiences to users," stated Robert J. Holtz, Zeros & Ones' Chairman and President. "At the same time, our broadband technology solutions will push ICTV even further in front of this explosive new market."

"This alliance will offer exciting opportunites for the cable subscriber," said Sheldon Safir, ICTV's vice president of business development. "By incorporating Zeros & Ones innovative broadband services we can provide cable operators with an enhanced digital platform that incorporates next generation capabilities."

Zeros & Ones is the latest product developer to agree to work on ICTV's digital platform.
