Jul 01, 2003

Satellite Newspapers Worldwide has announced that the company has transferred the exclusive rights to market and distribute the Satellite Newspaper KiOSK system in the United States, Canada, Mexico, South America, Central America and the Caribean Islands. The rights were acquired by Satellite Enterprises Corp. The Satellite Newspaper KiOSK is an interactive newspaper-vending machine that digitally prints the original latest editions of publisher's newspapers on customer's demand. Currently the Satellite Newspaper KiOSK offers same day editions of 122 newspapers from 50 countries. Satellite Enterprises Corp. is the exclusive market development and distribution organization for the Satellite Newspaper KiOSK in the North, Middle and South American market. The Company is focused on the business development and promotion of the Satellite Newspaper KiOSK remote newspaper-printing concept in these markets. This newspaper distribution system currently offers the same-day editions of 122 newspapers from 50 countries including US publications such as USA Today, International Herald Tribune, Los Angeles Times, and more. The Satellite Newspaper KiOSK is updated daily with the latest editions of international newspapers through a global satellite network. Satellite Newspapers Worldwide receives digital newspaper files from participating publishers via the Internet as soon as the newspaper is ready to be printed in the country of origin. Satellite Newspapers Worldwide then transfers the newspapers via satellite uplink and multicast satellite transmission. By distributing the news electronically rather than shipping it in printed form, international business and leisure travelers have instant access to their newspapers only minutes after the printing process in the country of origin has commenced. International readers can select and receive their favorite newspaper following four steps on the KiOSK's touch screen. Within two minutes, the latest edition of the newspaper of choice, printed in tabloid format is delivered from the KiOSK.
