For Immediate Release
[Thursday, January 25 2001 – London, St. Thomas, Strathroy, Tillsonburg, Woodstock] London-based Cyberteks Design has successfully secured the bid to design the website component for Rogers Television’s new interactive real-estate TV game show, nopricelikehome.com, premiering Thursday, February 1st @ 6:30 PM on Rogers Television, Cable 13 in London, St. Thomas, Strathroy, Tillsonburg and Woodstock. Cyberteks Design won the contract over design companies from London and Toronto. Internationally recognized and award-winning 12 year-old Keith Peiris is the company’s President, CEO and Chief Creative Director.

The nopricelikehome.com website features Flash technology, streaming video and will house the growing database of new homes listings and contestants. Cyberteks’ expertise in Macromedia Flash and their award-winning recognition across North America made them the candidate of choice.

“We were impressed with Keith’s professionalism, experience and his excitement to be a part of this unique venture,” says Scott Jackson, Station Manager, Rogers Television Woodstock. “ Designing the web element to the TV game show is a large project to undertake. We reviewed and were highly impressed with the websites this young company has developed.”

“Recognition of my talents by one of the leading companies in Canada is great for my company’s credibility. We will do whatever it takes to assure the continued growth of this partnership,” says Keith Peiris, Cyberteks Design. “It is heartening to note that we won this contract over larger design companies from London and Toronto.”

nopricelikehome.com is London’s only game show where the viewer is the contestant and the game is played via television and the Web. The TV game show showcases London and region newly listed homes and asks viewers to play the game of guessing the value of each home. After the show, the viewer is directed to the nopricelikehome.com website to enter their best guesses. Contestants closest to the actual listed price are awarded points and prizes.

London-based Ontario Mortgage Action Centre (OMAC) is the title sponsor of nopricelikehome.com and Rogers Television will kick-off premiere night, Thursday February 1st with an invite only launch party at OMAC’s head office. nopricelikehome.com will then air weekdays @ 3:00 PM, 6:30 PM and 11:30 PM.
