"CableClix" or the "Company" following on from its previous announcements, is pleased to report that it has executed an order for a significant number of its proprietary set top boxes. The order was placed with major Chinese manufacturer, Ching Toa, Ltd of Schenzhen, China. The set top boxes are the first of several million expected to be commissioned over the next 6-12 months. The boxes are destined for Washington, DC-based end subscribers participating in CableClix's initial structured pilot launch. Kris Domich, President of CableClix remarked, "A considerable amount of time and treasure has gone into designing and perfecting this set top box.  It is beyond exciting to see the first major order placed with our new manufacturing partner. Our internal manufacturing Leader, Zhi Ma, will remain in China until the initial batch of boxes have left the assembly line so that we can perform quality control in real time."

The delivery of the set top boxes within the next 2 months will be timed well with the anticipated agreements in place to sell the CCLX set top box at one of the USA's largest retail chain of stores.

About CableClix (USA), Inc.  

CableClix, Inc. was formed in 2013 to be a leading provider of high definition streaming television over broadband connections.  Our goals remain as they were at our inception; deliver quality television programming in high and ultrahigh definition, including local network content, directly to the local consumer, on nearly any device, at any time. CableClix is different from others that have attempted to deliver similar services in the past - because we create partnerships with the national networks, local affiliates, and local ISP's. Commonly referred to as television rebroadcasting, the concept is often one-sided in nature and ultimately the end consumer is left to pay significant monthly subscription fees for a plethora of channels that go mostly unwatched. Concurrently, local broadcast affiliates feel the ever increasing pressure of internet-based streaming services often broadcasting the same content and diminishing the relevance of traditional TV viewing. CableClix founders believed there was an opportunity to bridge the gap between the network and affiliate interests, and at the same time, give the consumers what they are clearly asking for: the convenience of watching their favorite shows any time, unaltered, and without a barrage of irrelevant marketing and advertisement.

Another important aspect of CableClix approach to streaming television is our appreciation for the local ISP's, especially the Wireless ISP's (WISPs). All ISP's have experienced the pressure of needing to increase upstream bandwidth to support the growing popularity of streaming video. The cost of these increases in bandwidth are either passed on to the end customer, or in competitive markets, taken directly from the bottom line. WISPs in particular tend to serve customers in rural areas, and while are still part of a given metropolitan broad cast area, are unable to receive local broadcasts without a satellite connection due to line of sight or distance from transmitters. In nearly all of those cases, cable is not an option for those customers due to the unavailability of the required infrastructure. CableClix founder and owner/operator of a WISP understood this problem firsthand, which triggered the desire to solve this growing TV viewing conundrum:

"How can we deliver high definition, local and premium television to the public, especially rural customers while simultaneously relieving bandwidth strain on ISPs, in a manner that protects and enforces the local broadcast area boundaries and respects the intellectual property of the networks and production houses?"

CableClix is committed to the development and continual enhancement of products and services that deliver the programming that consumers want affordably and reliably.  We achieve this using best-of-breed technologies, innovative people, and a customer-centric underpinning woven into everything we do.  We respect the ownership, talent, and effort that goes into developing the news, entertainment, and other intellectual property that we stream, and always respect and enforce the boundaries of metropolitan broadcast areas.  We value our partnerships with ISP's and constantly seek out new ways to optimize their network resources to ensure the best customer experience.  We are excited to be a part of the transformation of traditional viewing to the next generation of customized streaming TV.
