$8,000, or 1.8%, as compared to $435,000 for the period ended May 28, 1997.
This increase was primarily due to higher programming costs resulting from
contractual rate increases from programming suppliers.

 Year Ended December 31, 1997 Compared with Year Ended December 31, 1996

   Revenues for the year ended December 31, 1997 were approximately $1.9
million, an increase of $95,000, or 5.3%, as compared to revenues of
approximately $1.8 million for the year ended December 31, 1996. This increase
was primarily due to an increase in the average number of basic subscribers of
approximately 2.2% for the year ended December 31, 1997 and a full year's
impact from the launch of pay-per-view channels in the fourth quarter of 1996.

overhead were $1.0 million for the year ended December 31, 1997, a decrease of
$7,000, or 0.7%, for the year ended December 31, 1996. This decrease was
primarily due to the elimination of a management position in the first quarter
of 1997, which was partially offset by higher programming costs resulting from
contractual rate increases from programming suppliers and increases in the
number of basic subscribers.
