(a) Charter Communications, Inc. provided corporate management and consulting
    services on behalf of Charter Communications Holdings, LLC for 1998 and on
    behalf of Marcus Cable Holdings, LLC beginning in October 1998. See "Certain
    Relationships and Related Transactions."
    
 
(b) Operating cash flow means EBITDA, as defined below, before corporate
    expenses and management fees.
 
(c) EBITDA represents income (loss) before interest expense, income taxes,
    depreciation, amortization, gain (loss) on sale of assets and other income
    (expense). EBITDA is presented because it is a widely accepted financial
    indicator of a company's ability to service indebtedness. However, EBITDA
    should not be considered as an alternative to income from operations or to
    cash flows from operating activities (as determined in accordance with
    generally accepted accounting principles) and should not be construed as an
    indication of a company's operating performance or as a measure of
    liquidity.
 
(d) EBITDA margin represents EBITDA as a percentage of revenues.
 
(e) Earnings include net income (loss) plus fixed charges. Fixed charges consist
    of interest expense and an estimated interest component of rent expense.
 
(f) Basic penetration represents basic customers as a percentage of homes
    passed.
 
(g) Premium penetration represents premium units as a percentage of basic
    customers.
 
(h) Average monthly revenue per basic customer represents revenues divided by
    the number of months in the period divided by the number of basic customers
    at December 31, 1998.
