NEW YORK -- Tele-TV and its partners are
finalizing a 1997 business plan for Tele-TV focused on supporting the
partners' digital television products. Many important deliverables
were produced in 1996 including key programming agreements and
operating support systems that put Tele-TV in good position for
delivering video packages to its customers, and more work remains for
1997.


Tele-TV and its partners are continuing to discuss the most efficient
way to manage the work activity. Howard Stringer, Chairman and CEO of
Tele-TV and Sandy Grushow, president of Tele-TV Media, continue under
contract to Tele-TV.
