 President Clinton has called for a coast-to-coast electronic fiber "superhighway" that will bring voice, data, video and entertainment and computer services into U.S. homes. Much of "The Infostructure Network" is already in place, or will be completed by the middle of this decade by Tele-Communications Inc. (TCI). This plan aims to bring a whole new array of home entertainment benefits to the consumer, including: interactive video services, multiplexed movie offerings ("movies on demand"), "video shopping malls," two-way educational programming, time- shifted programs (enabling the viewer to watch their favorite programs when they want to), enhanced picture and sound quality and the potential for up to 500 channels. By 1996, TCI plans to pass 90 percent of the homes in the communities it serves with fiber, paving the way for this wide range of new advanced services.
 NOTE: National and regional maps of this project will be available at the press conferences along with a video news release, fact sheets and other statistics.
