DMX FINE-TUNES CHANNEL LINE-UP; NEW FORMATS OFFER LISTENERS INCREASED VARIETY, MORE MUSICAL CHOICES

 LOS ANGELES, Jan. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Reflecting an enormous appetite for new music among its subscribers, Digital Music Express (DMX(TM)), the nation's leading premium digital audio music service, has fine-tuned its current 30-channel line-up, adding two new music formats -- Big Mix (Channel 9) and R&B Hits (Channel 29) -- and revamping a third.
 "As part of our commitment to provide DMX listeners with the freshest music available, we continually evaluate our programming in response to subscriber feedback and current music trends," said Tom Oliver, president of International Cablecasting Technologies (NASDAQ: TUNE), parent company of DMX. "Our subscribers are passionate about the service and their music. They're listening often and for a long time.
 "These format changes, which substantially deepen our playlist and offer an even wider variety of musical choices, are a direct and positive response to what our subscribers have been telling us," added Oliver.
 DMX has added an urban format, R&B Hits, featuring music popular with younger listeners in markets such as Chicago, Washington, D.C., San Francisco, Seattle and Dallas. This format features the latest singles and CD-cuts by such trend-setting musical artists as Boyz II Men, Bobby Brown, En Vogue, Whitney Houston, Prince, Sade and more.
 For the adult contemporary audience, DMX has added a Big Mix format. Big Mix features familiar soft rock hits of the 70s, 80s, and 90s, and showcases such popular artists as Elton John, Fleetwood Mac, Billy Joel, Whitney Houston, Rod Stewart, the Doobie Brothers, Chicago, Bonnie Raitt, Phil Collins and The Eagles.
 To accommodate these new formats, DMX's two exiting oldies channels, which previously spotlighted separately the music of the 50s and 60s, have been combined into one improved oldies format, now featuring a greater variety of favorites from both decades on a single channel (Channel 8). Although World Beat, a showcase for contemporary international music, is not included in the current DMX channel line-up, it is expected to return to the service when increased channel capacity becomes available later in 1993.
 The flagship product of Los Angeles-based International Cablecasting Technologies Inc. (ICT), DMX provides 30 channels of continuous, commercial-free Sony-Philips CD-quality music programming. Offered by cable operators nationwide, it is now available to homes and businesses in more than 300 cable systems in 41 states.
 Publicly traded on NASDAQ, the company is backed by some of the industry's leading players, including Tele-Communications Inc. (TCI), Scientific-Atlanta, Viacom, KBLCOM, Scripps Howard, Colony Communications, Crown Media Inc. and Shaw Cablesystems of Canada.
