DIGITAL MUSIC EXPRESS BRINGS HOME A WHOLE NEW WORLD OF ENTERTAINMENT

 Seven Leading New York-Area Cable Companies
 Offer Revolutionary New Music Service
 LOS ANGELES, Feb. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Digital Music Express(R) (DMX(R)), the innovative new digital audio music service that is revolutionizing the sound of home entertainment across the country, is now available to residents of New York and New Jersey.
 Now offered locally by seven leading area cable companies, DMX brings home the ultimate music experience, delivering 30 channels of the highest quality, uninterrupted CD-standard music programming, digitally transmitted via cable directly to home stereo systems. With a wide variety of specially programmed music formats -- from big bands to blues; rock, rap and reggae to soul and symphonies, country to classical -- drawn from the industry's most comprehensive CD library, DMX continuously delivers more of the music today's listeners want, when they want it, all commercial and disc jockey free.
 Already, more than 120,000 households in such cities as Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Seattle, Denver, Philadelphia, Miami, Minneapolis and St. Louis have signed up for DMX through local cable companies since the service began a nationwide rollout in late 1991. Now offered locally by TCI of Northern New Jersey, TCI of Westchester County, TCI of Brookhaven, TKR Cable of Warwick, TKR Tri- System Cable in Piscataway, N.J., and TCI Cable of New York in Kingston and Poughkeepsie, DMX is available to more than 825,000 households in the greater New York/New Jersey metropolitan region.
 "DMX is really on the cutting edge of home entertainment. It truly has the potential to change the way people listen to music," said Jay Kirschner, director of sales and marketing for TCI of Northern New Jersey. "It's like having an endless CD collection at your fingertips, whatever your mood, 24 hours a day."
 To hear the future of home entertainment, interested listeners are invited to contact their local cable system office for a free DMX demonstration that includes the innovative DMX-DJ(R), a remote control unit that instantaneously provides programming information -- including song title, artist, album title and composer -- for all selections on the service.
 Located in Oakland, N.J., TCI of Northern New Jersey serves more than 305,000 households in Oakland, Wayne, Hackensack, Teaneck, Paramus, Ridgewood and other nearby communities, and ranks as the country's 18th largest cable system.
