HOME SHOPPING PLEASED WITH FCC'S MUST-CARRY RULING

 ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., July 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Home Shopping Network, Inc. (NYSE: HSN) management announced that it is pleased that the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has extended must-carry protection to shopping formatted television stations. The decision, based on thousands of pages of documents submitted to the Commission, confirms that such stations meet, and in many cases exceed, established guidelines for locally produced issue responsive programming.
 Gerald Hogan, president and chief executive officer of HSN, said, "The FCC decision to grant must-carry protection to TV shopping stations will allow these stations across the country, which have worked so hard to provide superior local public service programming, to continue to serve their communities. We at Home Shopping applaud the decision."
 Home Shopping Club's 41 full-power broadcast affiliates serving broadcast ADIs in the top 150 television markets are affected by the FCC's decision to grant must carry protection to shopping formatted broadcast stations.
