6. TWC may not require the subscription to any tier, other than the
BST, as a condition for subscribing to an MPT, and may not require subscription
to an MPT as a condition for subscribing to a CPST. Because the restructuring
involved in the creation of MPT(s) as described herein does not fundamentally
change the service provided to subscribers, TWC will not be required to re-
market any of the affected services to existing subscribers. Any services
migrated may be offered on an a la carte basis as well as in a package.
7. For the period prior to April 1, 1997, the price of any MPT
established pursuant to this Section III.D. may be adjusted solely to reflect
unrecovered inflation and external cost increases, including that currently
accrued but uncharged, in the manner permitted by the Commission's rules for
CPSTs. There will be no limitation on the number of new services TWC may add to
an MPT. The price of any such MPT may be increased to reflect new services
added to the MPT by an amount not to exceed $.20 per added channel, plus the
actual license fee(s) for the added channel(s).
8. On or after April 1, 1997, TWC may convert any MPT into an NPT, as
defined in 47 C.F.R. (S) 76.987, including subsequent clarifications or
amendments. Because customers will be able to subscribe to CPST(s) and an MPT
on a stand-alone basis, as of April 1, 1997 the Commission will regulate MPT
rates in the same manner in which the Commission currently regulates NPT prices.
Such NPTs will be treated as all other NPTs under the Commission's rules,
provided such NPT is offered without a buy-through requirement of any tier other
than the BST.
E. CUSTOMER REFUNDS AND CPST RATE REDUCTIONS. Pursuant to the settlement
of TWC's existing CPST rate cases as described in this section, TWC will provide
