FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 4, 1996

BELL ATLANTIC RESPONDS TO FCC's OPEN VIDEO SYSTEMS
ORDER


Attribute to Edward D. Young, III,
Vice President-External Affairs, Bell Atlantic
Corp.:

The FCC has done the right thing for consumers and
programmers with
its order on open video systems. The rules adopted by the commission
faithfully follow the spirit and intent of the Telecommunications Act
of 1996. These rules will give Bell Atlantic and other competitors
for video services an alternative to providing traditional
"closed"
cable systems. Open video systems can offer a richness of opportunity
for existing and new programmers as well as consumers, who could enjoy
more choices in who provides their video services.

We're pleased with the direction in which the FCC is currently headed
on open video systems, and we hope the "Cable Guys" won't stand
in the
way of increased competition and consumer choice.
