St. Louis, MO, December 27 - Charter Communications Holdings, LLC and Charter
Communications Capital Corporation today announced that they intend to privately
offer Senior Notes due 2008, Senior Notes due 2010 and Senior Discount Notes due
2012 to raise total proceeds of approximately $900,000,000. The issuers plan to

The notes have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended
(the "Securities Act"), and, unless so registered, may not be offered or sold in
the United States except pursuant to an exemption from, or in a transaction not
subject
 to, the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable
state securities laws. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell
or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the notes
in any state in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior
to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state.
