MB Tech Completes Tests of 'Metabox' for U.S. Market.

LAS VEGAS -- MB Tech Inc. (OTCBB: MBTT) announced today that it has successfully tested Metaware's "Metabox" in Las Vegas during the Consumer Electronics Show.

Metabox is the trade name of Metaware's branded line of set-top box solutions which are designed for multiple satellite and cable solutions. The products range in capability and functionality from a basic receiver tuner to high-end digital DVR and gaming combinations.

The Metabox tested in Las Vegas was for the free-to-air satellite receiver tuner using a 36-inch parabolic dish antenna, and was able to recognize and display the intended free-to-air satellites in use over North America.

"This is important as Metaware plans to market its Metabox products in the United States and throughout North America where prior to now they have operated primarily in Europe, Asia and the Middle East," said Hanwook Bae, president of MB Tech.

MB Tech recently announced an agreement to acquire an interest in Metaware.
