Amsterdam, The Netherlands and London, UK - Jetix Europe N.V. (AMEX:
JETIX; Reuters: JETIX.AS; Bloomberg: JETIX.NA) today announced that
it has signed an agreement with an affiliate of its majority
shareholder, The Walt Disney Company Ltd, for the distribution of its
channels and digital content across Europe, the Middle East and
Africa (EMEA).

The move, which will come into effect as of 1 July 2008, will mean
that the distribution of Jetix channels in the region will now be
serviced by Disney-ABC International Television's newly integrated TV
distribution business.

Disney-ABC International Television already services programme sales
for Jetix content to free-to-air broadcasters globally. The new deal
will strengthen this partnership, which currently represents the
leading Disney-branded kids channels, Disney Channel, Disney
Cinemagic, Playhouse Disney, Toon Disney, as well as the highly
successful sports services ESPN Classic and NASN.

DAIT's responsibilities will span all platforms including cable and
satellite as well as digital services such as IPTV and PPV.

Paul Taylor, Chief Executive of Jetix Europe, said: "The new deal
with DAIT will allow us to benefit from Disney's strong market
presence in all of our key territories. Channel distribution is a key
revenue stream for us and I am confident that being part of this
first class integrated distribution operation will deliver
significant benefits over the medium to long term."

Tom Toumazis, Executive Vice President & Managing Director of
Disney-ABC International Television EMEA & Canada, added: "This
agreement completes the EMEA integration of our Channel and Programme
distribution assets and teams, to better serve our international
clients and deliver value for our Company, adding Jetix channels to
the unique brand strength of Disney and ESPN channels."
