   Revenues for the six months ended June 30, 1998 were approximately $3.3
million, an increase of $287,000, or 9.6%, as compared to revenues of
approximately $3.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 1997. This
increase was primarily due to the effects of rate increases implemented in the
first quarters of 1997 and 1998 and an increase in the average number of basic
subscribers of approximately 1.3% during the six months ended June 30, 1998.
 
   Costs and expenses excluding depreciation and amortization and corporate
overhead were approximately $1.7 million for the six months ended June 30,
1998, an increase of $75,000, or 4.7%, as compared to $1.6 million for the six
months ended June 30, 1997. This increase was primarily due to higher
programming costs resulting from contractual rate increases from programming
suppliers, increases in the number of channels provided to customers and
increases in the number of basic subscribers.
 
   Operating income before depreciation and amortization and corporate overhead
was approximately $1.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 1998, an

first quarter of 1997, which together increased average revenue per subscriber.

$166,000, or 5.5%, as compared $3.0 million for the year ended December 31,

from contractual rate increases from programming suppliers and the introduction
of a new tier of programming.

was $3.0 million for the year ended December 31, 1997, an increase of $250,000,

of 1996.

overhead were $3.0 million for the year ended December 31, 1996, an increase of
$420,000, or 16.2%, as compared to $2.6 million for the year ended December 31,
1995. This increase was primarily due to an increase in the number of channels
per subscriber associated with the restructuring of its basic service described

from programming suppliers.
