 SYRACUSE, N.Y., March 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Metro Vision of North America, Inc. (NASDAQ: MVTV), and Samsung Electronics America, Inc., announced today the signing of an agreement under which Samsung will provide 31-inch television monitors to Metro Vision for Metro Vision's installation of the company's Flight Channel at New York's LaGuardia, JFK and Newark International Airports. Samsung will deliver this initial order of over 250 television monitors to Metro Vision for a cash-free exchange of advertising time of equal value on Metro Vision's Flight Channel Network.
 Steve Chung, V.P. of Samsung's agency, Cheil Communications, said, "Samsung Electronics has a presence in 50 airports around the world. The opportunity to reach airport travelers, a key Samsung target audience, with a full range of product advertisements on Metro Vision's Flight Channel while, at the same time, demonstrating the quality of our televisions 24 hours a day offers Samsung unique value-added marketing edge."
 Robert F. Hussey, president of Metro Vision, said, "We welcome Samsung as a partner as we continue to expand our Commuter Channel and roll out The Flight Channel nationally. This is a tremendous vote of confidence in Metro Vision by a world leader in electronics. Further, it recognizes that site-based media companies that provide a real service to their audiences offer advertisers valuable strategic partnership opportunities. Metro Vision is now assured of a quality supply of television monitors, while at the same time we are relieved of what has been a major capital expenditure for Metro Vision."
 Metro Vision owns and operates The Commuter Channel, the only wired- cable video network for the commuter rail market, and The Flight Channel for the airport market. The Commuter Channel is currently installed in the PATH System in New York/New Jersey, the CTA in Chicago, the BART System in San Francisco, the SEPTA System in Philadelphia, the McKinney Transportation Center in Stamford, Conn. serving both Metro-North and Amtrak; and is pilot testing the channel in the LIRR (Long Island Railroad) System in New York.
