[Cingular Video set to launch offering on-demand streaming video service offering the latest news and entertainment video clips including exclusive mobile content from HBO.]

Atlanta -- Cingular Wireless announced the upcoming launch of Cingular Video(TM), an on-demand streaming video service that delivers fast, personalized access to high-quality video clips on consumers' high-speed capable (3G) phones.

Cingular Video lets consumers personalize their service so they can easily access current video content they want to see, including news, sports, weather and entertainment clips. In addition, Cingular is providing expanded ringtones, graphics, messaging, and games, delivering innovative and exclusive entertainment content conveniently to consumers' wireless phones.

"With Cingular Video, consumers on the go can quickly and easily get the latest news and entertainment video clips anytime they want," said Ralph de la Vega, chief operating officer, Cingular Wireless. "Consumers are expecting more from their wireless service and we've now made it possible for consumers to customize their phone menu so they are never more than three clicks away from their favorite content."

Cingular Video uses the power of 3G phones as well as Cingular's new high- speed 3G wireless broadband network. The 3G phones, coupled with Cingular's MEdia Net(TM), its wireless Internet access for mobile devices, makes it possible to download ringtones, games, and graphics and access email and Web sites, faster than ever before.

HBO Partnership

As part of the commitment to offer expanded wireless entertainment, Cingular entered a partnership with HBO to produce exclusive mobile content on the two new services HBO Mobile and HBO Family Mobile. Cingular Video is the only place where consumers can get HBO Mobile and HBO Family Mobile, offering select episodes, clips of unforgettable scenes and bonus material from award- winning HBO shows, cartoons and never-before-seen comedy and sports.

"As this platform continues to evolve, we obviously want to be in business with the most innovative team in the wireless space," said Chris Albrecht, chairman & CEO, Home Box Office. "We also found in Cingular a partner that has great respect for the power of our brand. It is already a terrific relationship which we feel will reap big benefits for both companies."

While the video content will be available early next year, the downloadable content is available starting tomorrow. These elements will include:
