DENVER, May 18, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Roomlinx, Inc. (OTCBB:RMLX), the innovative developer of hotel interactive TV applications, today announced 2011 first quarter financial performance, which reflect ongoing increased revenues and gross profits, as well as the contribution of Canadian Communications.

First Quarter of 2011 Operating Results:

Roomlinx's revenue for the first quarter of 2011 was $1,423,172. This represents a 262% improvement over first quarter 2010. This improvement is primarily due to revenue resulting from recent property installations and recurring revenue streams of their Interactive TV platform as well as the revenue streams acquired through the acquisition of Canadian Communications, which are not present in the prior year period.

Roomlinx's gross profit for the first quarter of 2011 was $462,031.  This represents a 197% improvement over first quarter 2010 and is primarily due to the increased sales mentioned above.    

Net loss for the first quarter of 2011 was $539,177, compared to a net loss of $376,236 for the first quarter of 2010. This increase was primarily attributable to investments made to enhance their iTV platform. The enhancements included integration of internet apps such as Netflix and Hulu, as well as a development effort to integrate traditional TV programming into their exiting iTV platform.    

"It is clear hotel guests want a broad selection of entertainment options, including Internet based content, games, and information," stated Mike Wasik CEO of Roomlinx. "Roomlinx has the unique ability to satisfy these evolving habits while creating new streams of revenue. We will continue to prove these revenue streams extend far beyond traditional video on demand," stated Wasik.
