Business Editors/Hi-Tech Writers

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 4, 2001

Rabbit Media, Inc. (www.getrabbit.com) today released Rabbit(TM), a free media player that lets users view online videos easily and instantly. With Rabbit, movie previews, short films, amateur videos, humorous clips, etc. may be seen on Windows PCs without searching, broken links or browsers. After downloading and installing Rabbit, type the name of a clip, or pick one from a drop-down list and see it.

"We created Rabbit to make the best online video content available to almost everyone," said Shep Bostin, executive vice president at Rabbit Media, Inc. "Our Rabbit player and Web site at getrabbit.com are the fastest ways to see the latest movie previews. Rabbit will change the way teenagers and young adults choose movies they wish to see. Rabbit lets viewers play previews, chat about them with buddies, and check out current local show times - all with a few mouse clicks. Rabbit is a moviegoer's best friend."

Rabbit plays QuickTime and Windows Media Player files. It eliminates the need to understand file formats, or adjust connection speeds and player settings, and it has thousands of movie previews and clips, and adds new ones daily. Users can tell their 'buddies' about cool videos with Rabbit's built-in AOL Instant Messenger(TM) support.

Rabbit Benefits:
-- Rabbit is free. Unlike RealPlayer and QuickTime, users don't have to upgrade
to paid software versions to get all of Rabbit's features.

-- Movie previews, popular short online films, the latest clips of your
favorite bands or TV shows, and other cool clips are now available on Rabbit.

-- Just type the name of a video clip in the Rabbit slot and click Play. There
is no wading through search engine results, answering questions about
connection speeds and file formats, or searching movie sites for videos.

-- Rabbit is compatible with the most popular file formats, including
QuickTime, MPEG, AVI and ASF video.

-- As with popular MP3 players, users can choose the look-and-feel of their
Rabbit player by selecting a 'skin' with a customized background and buttons to
give it the look they like. Skins can be created with a simple program like
Windows Paint and the Rabbit Skin Editor(TM) (available by September 1st).

-- By using its built-in integration with AOL Instant Messenger(TM) (AIM),
Rabbit users may share video clips with friends who can view them immediately.
No more searching, cutting and pasting, or worrying about what media players
friends use.

-- Users can click Rabbit's 'Tickets' button to find theatre locations and
showtimes for current movies.

-- Rabbit is available now at www.getrabbit.com.
