WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., April 2, 2003 (PRIMEZONE) — United Online, Inc.
(Nasdaq:UNTD), a leading provider of value-priced Internet access through
its NetZero, Juno and BlueLight Internet consumer brands, today announced
the availability of a Mac version of its NetZero Platinum value-priced
Internet access service. The release of NetZero for Mac OS X follows on the
heels of the company’s earlier announcement of a Mac product for its Juno
brand of Internet access. NetZero developed a Mac version of its software
based on strong demand and feedback from the Mac user community.
NetZero Platinum for Mac offers Mac OS X users easy-to-use, reliable
Internet service with thousands of access numbers nationwide, fast
connections, compatibility with all of the most popular instant messaging
programs, and Web-based e-mail that is accessible from any Internet

Mac OS X is downloadable in 2 minutes by going to www.netzero.com.
“United Online now offers two brands of Internet access for Mac OS X users
creating greater selection and availability for consumers,” stated Brian
Woods, EVP and Chief Marketing Officer of United Online. “We have found
that the Mac community is loyal and technologically savvy when it comes to
Internet access. Offering a NetZero branded service strongly supports the
company’s position as the emerging leader in the value-priced ISP segment
of the Mac market.”
