On 6 May 2005, UTV announced a cash offer with a Partial Share Alternative and
an Additional Share Facility to acquire the entire issued and to be issued
ordinary share capital of Wireless which was recommended by the Wireless
Independent Directors.

Offer Wholly Unconditional

On 6 June 2005, UTV declared the Offer unconditional as to acceptances.  All of
the remaining conditions of the Offer have now been satisfied or waived and

in all respects.

The Offer will remain open until further notice.  As described in the Offer

Share Facility will close on 17 June 2005.

Compulsory Acquisition

UTV announces that it has acquired, or contracted to acquire, not less than
nine-tenths in value of the Wireless Shares to which the Offer relates and,
accordingly, is now entitled and intends to compulsorily acquire the remaining
Wireless Shares pursuant to sections 428 to 430F of the Companies Act 1985.  The
appropriate compulsory acquisition notices pursuant to s429(4) of the Companies
Act 1985 will be issued later today.

Cancellation of Listing and Trading

As stated in the Offer Document, it is UTV's intention to procure that Wireless
will apply for cancellation of the listing of the Wireless Shares on the
Official List and for the cessation of trading on the London Stock Exchange's
market for listed securities.  It is anticipated that the cancellation of
listing and trading will take effect on 13 July 2005, being not less than 20
Business Days following this announcement.
