RA'anana, Israel - 26 March, 2007 - Orca Interactive (LSE: ORCA), a global
market leader in developing middleware and applications for IPTV, announces
today that ON Telecoms, an alternative telecoms provider, is utilising Orca's
RiGHTv middleware in a pioneering Greek IPTV deployment.

Powered by Orca's latest version of RiGHTv middleware, the ON Telecoms IPTV
service includes live TV (a hybrid of DVB-T and IP channels), on-demand services
such as video on demand (VOD) and super fast broadband up to 10 Mbps. The
service uses MPEG-4 technology and can provide channels in Standard Definition

innovative operators to design their own solutions and launch successful IPTV
rollouts in a short time to market.

Commenting on the announcement, Orca Chief Executive, Haggai Barrel said: 'We
are excited to be working with ON Telecoms.   They have a deep understanding of
the Greek market and have a proven track record in triple play deployments
across Europe such as FastWeb in Italy and Hansenet in Germany. Their decision
to select Orca as a key partner on this project further underlines the
efficiency, suitability and strength of Orca's RiGHTv solution.'

Executive, Ruggero Gramatica said: 'ON Telecoms identified the potential of
Greek market for IPTV, but as an innovative startup we didn't have the luxury of
time in getting the deployment up and running. So we selected a first rate team,
of which Orca Interactive provides the core middleware management, to get us
there quickly as well as meet all of our custom requirements.  With this team we
were able to offer a complete and reliable triple play package in just four
