MONTREAL, Canada and MIAMI, Florida, May 20 /CNW Telbec/ - The Miami
Dolphins will kick-off their 2009-2010 season with a new and exciting video
wireless device that will bring their fans closer to the game and maximize
their in-stadium fan experience.
The innovative device will be provided by Kangaroo Media (TSX-V: KTV.V)
as part of a three-year agreement with the Miami Dolphins. No less than 5000
devices will be made available to season ticket holders with suites and club
level memberships. Using Kangaroo's newly minted Generation III device - with
many viewing and navigation improvements as well as new fully interactive
Wi-Fi applications - in-stadium fans will never have to miss a moment of
action on the field, enjoy all the statistics of the game, as well as the
enthusiasm and activity leading up to the pre-game and the post game analysis.
The wireless TV will deliver rich video, audio and real-time data -
play-by-play audio, action replays, messaging, player profile, stats and much
more - all at the fingertips. With the Kangaroo wireless device, the Miami
Dolphins are moving the in-stadium fan experience to a whole new and exciting
level and expanding it beyond.
"We are excited to enter into this unique partnership with Kangaroo,"
said Dolphins Owner and Managing General Partner Stephen M. Ross. "We have
made a commitment to Dolphins fans that we will constantly strive to enhance
their experience at Land Shark Stadium. The roll-out of this exciting new

For Kangaroo this is a stand-out agreement. Kangaroo is leveraging the
full spectrum of its fan enhancement experience expertise and technology and
providing the Dolphins with a 'turn-key solution' for Land Shark Stadium. The
agreement includes the sale of 5000 wireless handsets, activation and the
hardware and software services to integrate the wireless device seamlessly
with the in-stadium video technology and production platform. As well,
Kangaroo has additional revenue possibilities stemming from any new handset
features and applications developed for the team and from joint sales efforts
for advertising content on the wireless handset.
"For Kangaroo, this agreement is a precedent-setting one on many levels,"
said an enthusiastic Robert Mimeault, President and CEO of Kangaroo Media.
"The Dolphins are true-believers of the in-stadium fan experience advantage
and this agreement proves their desire to invest and sustain this advantage
over the coming years with Kangaroo as a partner. From our perspective, we
have signed an agreement that is profitable from the outset, that has
potential for the future and that fully capitalizes on our industry-leading
fan experience technology and expertise. We are very excited by this new
