LodgeNet Reveals Top Ten In Room Movies for 2007

Warner Bros. is #1 Studio

SIOUX FALLS, S.D., Feb. 7, 2008 - LodgeNet Interactive Corporation (Nasdaq: LNET), the leading provider of media and connectivity solutions to hospitality, healthcare and other guest-based businesses, today announced the list of top selling on demand theatrical movie titles for hospitality in 2007.

LodgeNet's interactive network of over 9,000 hospitality locations provides more customers with on demand entertainment than any other service focused on the hospitality industry. Over the past year, LodgeNet's platform has grown considerably through organic expansion and the acquisition of On Command. Given the scope of its current room base, LodgeNet is the leader in providing on demand entertainment to the market, and its list of top selling titles is the most accurate gauge of performance in that market.

The most-viewed video on demand movies in properties served by LodgeNet during the year were:

    1.  Knocked Up
    2.  Borat
    3.  Night at the Museum
    4.  Wild Hogs
    5.  300
    6.  The Bourne Ultimatum
    7.  Casino Royale
    8.  The Departed
    9.  Live Free or Die Hard
  10. Ghost Rider
LodgeNet also announced that Warner Bros. was the top performing studio for 2007. The studio edged out Universal, who released the year's top selling title, Knocked Up, and also surpassed last year's winner, Twentieth Century Fox.

"Warner Bros. consistently creates popular, high-quality films, and offered travelers an extraordinary variety of themes and genres with perfect timing this year," said William M. Coleman, Vice President Studio Relations and Film Licensing Worldwide for LodgeNet. "Key titles from Warner Bros. in 2007 included: Academy Award winner The Departed, Happy Feet, 300, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Ocean's 13, and Music & Lyrics. We congratulate Warner Bros. on their success over the past year."

"LodgeNet is a terrific partner; they know how to communicate with hotel guests and consistently deliver the best entertainment experience," said Deanne Lewis, vice president of sales for Warner Bros. Digital Distribution. "We look forward to continuing our successful partnership in 2008."
