AgileTV and SeaChange Jump Navigation Hurdle for On Demand Television

World`s First Voice Activated VOD Solution Available to Cable Industry

Menlo Park, Calif. and Maynard, Mass. - June 7, 2005 - AgileTV, a pioneer in voice enabled search and navigation services, and video -on -demand leader SeaChange International (Nasdaq: SEAC) today announced the first voice -activated VOD solution for the cable industry. Promptu, AgileTV`s voice activated search and navigation service has successfully been integrated with SeaChange`s VOD system and deployed in cable systems in technical and marketing trials.

Cable operators deploying SeaChange`s VOD system with Motorola set -top boxes are now able to offer their customers the industry`s simplest, most consumer friendly navigational service to access and enjoy the full programming line up regardless of where content is located -broadcast, On Demand, or on the DVR. Now those operators who have chosen SeaChange as their VOD solution can deploy the Promptu navigation service and have customers searching for their favorite programs by genre or find a specific show simply by saying the name of the program, network, actor or sports team.

`VOD services are growing with many already offering thousands of hours of programs and movies, so very simple access to preferred content is vital for subscriber satisfaction,` said Yvette Kanouff, corporate vice president of Strategic Planning, SeaChange. `Voice controlled television and intuitive EPGs help provide a compelling viewer experience in on -demand television.`

`AgileTV offers cable operators a competitive advantage with a voice activated navigation service that helps grow and retain digital customers by giving viewers premium search and discover functionality for digital cable, On Demand and DVR programming,` said David Hanson, senior vice president of Business Development, AgileTV. `The integration with SeaChange marks the first time that voice navigation services have been merged with an On Demand platform, giving operators a means to increase the usability of On Demand programming by leveraging technology from the leaders in voice navigation and On Demand.`

AgileTV`s technology scales from thousands to hundreds of thousands of voice -enabled customers from a single cable headend. Promptu, AgileTV`s core product, is a server -centric voice recognition service that allows cable television viewers to search through the wide arrays of cable programming available today. Promptu utilizes an extensive, dynamically managed database exceeding more than 100,000 phrases with higher than 90 percent voice recognition accuracy. The product is currently in market trials with several top cable operators. AgileTV will be demonstrating the integrated Promptu service in SeaChange`s booth at the SCTE convention in San Antonio.

First deployed in 2000 and now supporting over 100 broadband networks delivering video services, SeaChange`s VOD servers and software are the platform for the majority of commercial on -demand television services around the world
