In a busy week signaling the rapid growth of IPTV network and internet product development company, Jack 9 Entertainment Inc, the company announces that they have acquired the video-enabled social networking website, CommunityX.net, hired Craig Cunningham as their CFO, and added new content to their Web TV site, http://www.Jack9.com. The moves follow a report showing that Jack9.com is outpacing top IPTV, Web TV and online video sites such as Veoh.com, Joost.com, CraveOnline.com and more. The report was released to rave reviews at the 2007 OMMA Conference in New York City in July.

The acquisition gives Jack 9 developers access to social networking capabilities that will mesh with their existing Web TV platform that receives over 1 million unique video requests per day. Jack 9 Entertainment Inc. will also inherit CommunityX.net's 6 figure membership base. Jack 9 predicts that current growth rates coupled with the CommunityX.net acquisition will drive their web rankings near that of other internet giants like Google (GOOG), Yahoo (YHOO) and IAC (IACI) by year's end.
