Fuse Offers New Downloadable Content for PSP

E3 (LOS ANGELES, CA, May 18, 2005) – Fuse, the nation's only viewer-driven, all-music network, today announced that it will offer Play Station Portable (PSP) users free pre-formatted, downloadable content for Sony's new hand held through its Web site www.fuse.tv.

Starting this week, PSP owners will have access to exclusive interviews, behind the scenes footage and more from some of Fuse's most popular shows including Daily Download and Steven's Untitled Rock Show. These video clips can easily be downloaded and viewed on the PSP, similar to content popular with owners of MP3 players.

"Fuse is very excited to support this new platform with dynamic PSP content," said Robert Weiss, Head of Entertainment and Digital Media for Fuse. "Because of our relationships and access to both popular and emerging bands, exclusive artist interviews and music videos, we will be able to provide unique, fresh and compelling materials to PSP owners on a regular basis."

Some of the first PSP offerings from Fuse will include:

DAILY DOWNLOAD: Slipknot interview
Hosted by Fuse VJs Dylan and Marianela, Daily Download is a fresh take on the perennial "countdown concept" show and provides free downloads of the most popular songs of the day, along with the most buzz-worthy content circulating on the Internet, from games to animations.

STEVEN'S UNTITLED ROCK SHOW: Me First and the Gimme Gimmes interviews
Fuse's Steven's Untitled Rock Show, hosted by Fuse VJ Steven is a daily showcase for rock, punk, indie music, and more.

As Fuse will frequently refresh content, stay tuned for the first episode in a 6-part series of interviews with today's hottest graphic artists from Fuse's Framed Masters of Music Art feature.
