RadioShack to Offer MovieBeam System; Introductory Rebate Offer Pairs Movies-on-Demand Service With LCD Televisions

    BURBANK, Calif. and FORT WORTH, Texas, Oct. 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/
 -- RadioShack Corporation (NYSE:   RSH) and MovieBeam, Inc. today announced
 an agreement to sell the MovieBeam movies-on-demand system in approximately
 1,700 neighborhood RadioShack stores effective immediately. The rollout
 covers 31 major metropolitan areas across the country in which the
 MovieBeam service is currently offered.
     Making this agreement especially interesting to movie lovers and home
 theater enthusiasts is a special introductory offer -- good through Nov. 5,
 2006 -- for a $50 mail-in rebate with the simultaneous purchase of any
 liquid crystal display (LCD) television and the MovieBeam System at
 participating RadioShack stores.
     The MovieBeam System is composed of a set-top box and small indoor
 antenna that receives, stores, protects and plays movies. A simple remote
 control facilitates navigation of the intuitive user interface. A customer
 does not need cable or satellite to receive the service, although MovieBeam
 is compatible with each. The MovieBeam movies-on-demand service provides
 instant access to an ever-changing lineup of new releases and other popular
 favorites from virtually every major Hollywood studio. There are always 100
 movies immediately available, with up to 10 new titles automatically
 delivered digitally each week -- including select movies in high definition
 (HD). The MovieBeam System sells for $99.99, after which customers pay only
 for the movies they choose to rent ($3.99 for new releases and $1.99 for
 library titles, with a $1 premium for HD movies).
     The MovieBeam service is currently available in 31 metropolitan areas
 across the U.S. reaching more than 41 million households. To determine if
 the service is available in a particular neighborhood, customers should
