Issue of Equity, etc.

West 175 Media Group Inc
15 August 2000

                           WEST 175 MEDIA GROUP INC:


West  175 Media Group Inc. ('West 175' or the 'Company'), the lifestyle  media
group  listed  on  AIM,  announced today that Altium  Capital,  its  Nominated
StockBroker,  has  placed  7,333,334 new ordinary  shares  in  West  175  with
institutional and other clients at 150p per share, raising net proceeds of £11
million for the Company.

Application  will be made for the new Ordinary Shares, which  will  rank  pari
passu  in all respects with the Company's existing issued Ordinary Shares,  to
be  admitted  to  trading on AIM.  It is expected that admission  will  become
effective,  and  that  dealings in the new Ordinary Shares  will  commence  on
Thursday, 17 August 2000.

The proceeds from the Placing, which completes West 175's current fund-raising
programme,  will  be  used  to  fund West 175's active  corporate  development
programme  as well as its future working capital requirements.  In particular,
the   Company  is  currently  investing  in  the  expansion  of  its  internet
activities,  which include Actrix, New Zealand's longest-established  Internet
Service   Provider,  and  Central  Park  Interactive,  New  Zealand's  leading
interactive   retail  chain,  in  which  West  175  yesterday  announced   the
acquisition of an equity interest.

Although  the  Company  will  continue  to  review  opportunities  to  enhance
shareholder value where available, the Board confirms that it now has adequate
resources to meet all its funding requirements for the foreseeable future.

Commenting on the Placing, Rohan Courtney, Chairman of West 175, said: 'We are
now  in a position to press on with all our exciting development plans without
needing  to  seek more funds.  At the same time I am delighted  to  welcome  a
number of significant new investors, while being very encouraged that many  of
our  existing  institutional shareholders have increased their  commitment  to
West 175.  I look forward with confidence to an exciting twelve months ahead.'
