-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

          IN
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
(1) Represents the shares of Class A Common Stock of the Issuer into which the
    following interests may be converted: (a) 50,000 shares of Class B Common
    Stock of the Issuer held directly by Paul G. Allen, (b) 106,685,298 Class A
    Common Membership Units of Charter Communications Holding Company, LLC
    ("Charter Holdco") held by Vulcan Cable III Inc. ("Vulcan") and (c)
    217,585,246 Class A Common Membership Units of Charter Holdco held by
    Charter Investment, Inc. ("CII"). Each of Vulcan and CII has an exchange
    option with the Issuer giving it the right, at any time, to exchange its
    Class A Common Membership Units (the "Class B Common Stock Equivalents") for
    shares of Class B Common Stock of the Issuer on a one-for-one basis. Class B
    Common Stock of the Issuer is convertible at any time into Class A Common
    Stock of the Issuer on a one-for-one basis. Mr. Allen is the sole
    stockholder of Vulcan and owns 96.8% of the outstanding capital stock of
    CII. Mr. Allen is therefore deemed to have beneficial ownership of all of
    the Class B Common Stock Equivalents held by Vulcan and CII. As the ultimate
    controlling person of both Vulcan and CII, he is also deemed to have sole
    voting power with respect to the Class B Common Stock Equivalents held by
    each entity. Each entity is deemed to share its respective voting power as
    the direct owner of the Class B Common Stock Equivalents with Mr. Allen
    because of Mr. Allen's controlling interest in such entity.
 
(2) Mr. Allen has beneficial ownership of 59.4% of the Class A Common Stock
    assuming conversion of all Class B Common Stock and Class B Common Stock
    Equivalents. Each share of Class B Common Stock of the Issuer has the right
    to a number of votes determined by multiplying (i) ten, and (ii) the sum of
    (1) the total number of shares of Class B Common Stock outstanding, and (2)
    the aggregate number of outstanding Class B Common Stock Equivalents, and
    dividing the product by the total number of shares of Class B Common Stock
    outstanding. Therefore, assuming no conversion into Class A Common Stock of
    the Class B Common Stock and the Class B Common Stock Equivalents
    beneficially owned by Mr. Allen, Mr. Allen has beneficial ownership of Class
    B Common Stock with a voting power of 93.6% of the Issuer's outstanding
    Class A Common Stock.
