West 175 Media Grp

Chairman's Statement

West 175 Media Group Inc
28 September 2000

                           WEST 175 MEDIA GROUP INC.
                         ('West 175' or 'the Company')
                           CHAIRMAN'S AGM STATEMENT

At  the  Annual  General Meeting of West 175 Media Group Inc., the  AIM-listed
lifestyle media group, held in London today, shareholders approved the  change
of  the  Company's  domicile from California to Delaware, a move  designed  to
facilitate any future potential listing on NASDAQ.

Rohan  Courtney, Chairman of West 175, highlighted the Company's  achievements
in the year ended 31 March 2000, which included:

  * An increase in turnover by 400%
  * An increase in gross profits by 850%
  * The successful launch of MasterChef USA
  * The  broadcast of Series 2 of 'GREAT FOOD' and Series 4 of the 'Chefs  of
    Cucina Amore'
  * The US distribution of World of Wildlife series
  * The purchase of 60% of, New Zealand's leading internet service
  * The  launch  of a live celebrity chef event, ahead of a planned  national
    roll out

Mr  Courtney  also made the following remarks:  'Much has happened  since  the
year-end. In August West 175 has become the first US company listed in  London
to  announce  settlement in CREST.  We also announced the  purchase  of  24.9%
equity  interest in Central Park Interactive Limited, which currently operates
13  stores  across New Zealand, marketing Playstation, Nintendo and Game  Boy.
Central  Park  Interactive provides an important distribution channel  through
which  Actrix will be able to market Internet products and services.  It  will
also provide a platform for both Actrix and West 175 to leverage opportunities
in the emerging on-line gaming market.

The  advantage  of  forging links with Sony and Westfield Group,  one  of  the
world's  largest shopping mall developers with which Central Park  Interactive
has  a key relationship, will be seen in advertising on the Group's television
and radio stations in New Zealand.

Since  the  year-end  we have also raised £11 million from  institutional  and
other  clients  to  fund  both  the  Company's  active  corporate  development
programme  and its future working capital requirements.  We said at the  time,
and  I  would  like  to  emphasise again, that the Company  now  has  adequate
resources  to meet all of its funding requirements, although we will  continue
to review opportunities to enhance shareholder value as and when they arise.

'We  have  built  a  business with significant capabilities  in  broadcasting,
production, events, publishing, fulfilment, merchandising, e-commerce and  the
Internet  and which has operating bases in the United States, New Zealand  and
the United Kingdom. We  are  abreast of the latest technology and are meeting
the increased demand for  all  aspects  of lifestyle. Our strong management
team  is  committed  to delivering to shareholders the real increases in value
that the integration of these businesses is capable of producing.'
