SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- NBC Internet, Inc. (Nasdaq: NBCI), a leading Internet portal company that brokers information, commercial, and entertainment transactions, today announced an alliance with NBC/Quokka Ventures (NQV) under which NBCi will showcase narrowband and broadband multimedia Olympics content and commerce from NBCOlympics.com. NBCOlympics.com, NBC`s home for Internet coverage of the Olympic Games, is a co-production of NBC Olympics and Quokka Sports (Nasdaq: QKKA).

Under the terms of the agreement, NBCi will receive exclusive content from NBCOlympics.com, which will not be made available to any other Internet portals or content distributors.

Additionally, as part of NBCi`s strategic relationship with Telocity Inc. (Nasdaq: TLCT), a leading nationwide provider of residential broadband services in the United States, Telocity subscribers will be able to view daily broadband Olympic content from the Sydney Games. NBCi and NQV

NBCi and NQV will provide NBCOlympics.com`s content, community applications and e-commerce opportunities to millions of NBCi`s portal users, and will collaborate on targeted direct marketing initiatives. The move builds on NBCi`s core competencies in brokering information and commercial transactions between NBCi`s users and partners, via Web-based and direct email applications. For its part, NQV will receive increased distribution for its digital Olympics coverage and shopping opportunities.

As part of the agreement, NBCi and NQV will build a co-branded Sydney 2000 Center within NBCi`s Snap.com Internet portal, to be transitioned to the new NBCi.com flagship portal service, launching this fall. NBCi will showcase unique NBCOlympics.com content, including interviews from Olympic athletes, NBC sports commentary, and other in-depth Olympics coverage before and during the Games -- covering such sports as diving, swimming, gymnastics, track and field, basketball and more. This narrowband and rich media content also will be featured on NBCi`s broadband destination service.

The NBCi/NQV Sydney 2000 Center will integrate contextual commerce links to NQV`s U.S. Olympics Store, www.usolympicstore.com, where U.S. users can purchase Olympic-related merchandise online.

Additionally, NBCi Direct, NBCi`s e-list management and database marketing division specializing in direct marketing via the Internet, will create and manage a specialized direct e-commerce initiative for NBCi and NBCOlympics.com. This direct e-commerce program will be targeted for NBCi members who have opted-in to receive information about NBC Olympic products and services.

This alliance also demonstrates NBCi`s ability to broker high-quality content and commerce transactions between our users and best-of-breed Internet content providers, leveraging both Web-based and direct e-commerce applications."

"NBCOlympics.com aims to deliver a rich Olympic experience to a wide U.S. Internet audience and today`s exciting deal with NBCi will help us connect with NBCi`s large, valuable audience, expanding our scope throughout the NBC family," said Tom Newell, General Manager of NQV.
