Narrowstep(TM) Inc Appoints New CEO; Cable Pioneer Joins Board

LONDON and NEW YORK, March 28

Narrowstep(TM) Inc, the TV on the Internet Company, announced today
that Stephen Beaumont, 49, has been appointed Chief Executive Officer,
effective immediately. He replaces Iolo Jones, the Company's visionary
founder, who will continue as Chief Strategy Officer and a member of the Board
of Directors. The Company also announced that cable pioneer Roger L. Werner,
Jr., 56, has joined its Board, increasing the number of members to eight.

Stephen Beaumont Named CEO
Mr. Beaumont, who has over 20 years of experience running international
businesses, joined the company in October 2005 and was recently appointed to
Narrowstep's Board. Prior to joining Narrowstep, he held several executive
management positions including Area Director, Finance and Administration, for
Europe, Africa, and Middle East with Parker Pen; Managing Director, Eastern
Europe, Africa, Middle East and India for Gillette; and Senior Vice President
Europe, for Sanford, the writing instrument division of Newell Rubbermaid.
Most recently, in 2002, Mr. Beaumont took over ESL plc's bathroom division and
as Managing Director, turned the business around in preparation for its
eventual sale last year.
Commenting on today's announcement, Mr. Jones said, "I am proud to have
led Narrowstep through the early phases of its life, including developing and
commercializing our Internet-based video content delivery products,
successfully taking the Company public, raising the funds necessary to fuel
our expansion and assembling a first-class management team. It is now time
for me to turn control of the day-to-day management of the Company over to the
professional managers we have put into place. I have every confidence that
Steve will be able to lead our company in the next phase of its development
while allowing me to concentrate my energies on the new tools and technologies
that make Narrowstep the leading provider of Internet video applications."

Roger L. Werner, Jr. Joins Board
Mr. Werner, a cable programming pioneer and seasoned network executive,
founded the Speedvision (now Fox's "Speed Channel") and Outdoor Life networks
and served as their President and CEO from 1995-2001. Launched in December
1995, Speedvision and Outdoor Life achieved profitability in 2001 on combined
revenue of over $100 million, and in July 2001 were sold to Fox and Comcast
for a combined $1.4 billion.
Mr. Werner has served as a special advisor to Narrowstep since December
2005 and has assisted primarily in the development of its marketing strategy
and the presentation of the Company's business proposition to leading media
organizations in North America. Mr. Werner will continue to provide advisory
services to Narrowstep following his appointment to the Board of Directors.
Mr. Werner said, "Working with the Company over the past several months I
have become more familiar with its technologies and the potential the
Company's products hold for media organizations around the world. I am please
to be joining the Board of Directors and look forward to working more closely
with management and the other Board members to help the Company penetrate this
potential marketplace."
Commenting on today's announcements, Mr. Beaumont stated, "Iolo Jones has
been instrumental in putting Narrowstep on a solid foundation and I am
grateful that he has agreed to continue his work for the Company. I am
excited about the opportunity to lead the Company in its next growth phase and
expect to capitalize on the hard work of my predecessor and the early success
we have had to date. I am excited to be doing so with Roger onboard. He is a
proven television entrepreneur and we believe that his insights as an
experienced operator and broadcast executive will be invaluable as we seek to
grow our business."
