     Renaissance Media Group LLC ("Group") was formed by Renaissance Media
Holdings LLC on March 13, 1998.  Group was formed to acquire, operate and
develop cable television systems through its subsidiaries in markets within the
United States.  Group and its wholly-owned subsidiaries are collectively
referred to as (the "Company").  Prior to March 13, 1998 the Company's start-up
activities were conducted by Renaissance Media Holdings LLC and Renaissance
Media LLC.

     On April 9, 1998, the Company completed its first acquisition.  Pursuant to
the Asset Purchase Agreement dated November 14, 1997 with TWI Cable, the Company
acquired cable television systems which are clustered in southern Louisiana,
western Mississippi and western Tennessee and, as of September 30, 1998, passed
181,137 homes, served 127,919 basic subscribers and had 59,831 premium service
units.  The Company is the 4th largest cable television system operator in
Louisiana and the 5th largest cable television system operator in Tennessee
based upon the Systems' numbers of subscribers at September 30, 1998.

     The Company intends to increase its subscriber base and operating cash flow
by pursuing cable television system acquisitions, improving and upgrading its
technical plant and expanding its service offerings.  The Company will pursue
selective acquisitions in markets which are contiguous to the Systems and in
non-contiguous mid-sized markets serving more than 30,000 subscribers where
local or regional clusters can be formed.  The Company believes that by
clustering systems it will be able to realize economies of scale, such as
reduced payroll, reduced billing and technical costs per subscriber, reduced
advertising sales costs, increased local advertising sales, more efficient roll-
out and utilization of new technologies and consolidation of  its customer
service functions.  The Company plans to improve and upgrade its technical
plant, which should allow it to provide a wide array of new services and service
tiers, as well as integrate new interactive features into advanced analog and
digital set-top consumer equipment.  The Company also plans to develop and
provide new cable and broadband services and develop ancillary businesses
including digital video and high speed Internet access services.

     Revenues.  The Systems' revenues are primarily attributable to subscription
fees charged to subscribers for basic and premium cable television programming
services.  Basic revenue consists of monthly subscription fees for basic and
CPST satellite services.  Multiple dwelling unit accounts typically are offered
a bulk rate in exchange for single point billing and basic service to all units.
Premium revenue consists of monthly subscription fees for programming provided
on a per-channel basis.  In addition, other revenue is derived from new product
tiers, pay-per-view fees, installation and reconnection fees charged to
subscribers to receive service, monthly equipment rental fees, advertising
revenue and commissions related to the sale of goods by home shopping services
and in home wiring service contracts.
