Vancouver, B.C.: BBTV Holdings Inc. (TSX: BBTV; OTCQX: BBTVF) (“BBTV” or the “Company”), today announced that it has filed its Notice of Intention to make a Normal Course Issuer Bid (“NCIB”) with the Toronto Stock Exchange (“TSX”). The NCIB remains subject to approval by the TSX.

BBTV believes that share purchases pursuant to the NCIB will contribute to the facilitation of an orderly market and be in the best interests of the Company and its shareholders. In the event that BBTV believes that its subordinate voting shares (“Subordinate Voting Shares”) begin trading in a price range that does not adequately reflect their underlying value based on BBTV’s business prospects and financial position, BBTV may purchase Subordinate Voting Shares pursuant to the NCIB. Depending upon future price movements and other factors, BBTV believes that its outstanding Subordinate Voting Shares represent an attractive investment and that the NCIB is a desirable use of a portion of its available corporate funds.

Under the NCIB, if approved by the TSX, the Company may acquire, over a 12-month period, up to an aggregate of 5% of the Subordinate Voting Shares of the Company issued and outstanding on the date of TSX approval of the NCIB.

Purchases subject to this NCIB will be carried out pursuant to open market transactions through the facilities of the TSX and any other available markets and alternative trading systems in Canada by a broker on behalf of the Company in accordance with applicable regulatory requirements. All Subordinate Voting Shares purchased by the Company under the NCIB will be returned to treasury and cancelled.

To the knowledge of the Company, no director, senior officer or other insider of the Company or any of their associates currently intends to sell any Subordinate Voting Shares under this bid. However, sales by such persons through the facilities of the TSX or any other available market or alternative trading system in Canada may occur if the personal circumstances of any such person change or if any such person makes a decision unrelated to these normal course purchases. The benefits to any such person whose Subordinate Voting Shares are purchased would be the same as the benefits available to all other holders whose Subordinate Voting Shares are purchased. The commencement and termination dates for this NCIB will be announced once the NCIB has been approved by the TSX.
