THERE'S NO NEED TO BE IN BARCELONA TO WATCH THE SUMMER OLYMPICS -- VCR PLUS+(R) CAPTURES THE MOMENT AS THE U.S. GOES FOR THE GOLD

THERE'S NO NEED TO BE IN BARCELONA TO WATCH THE SUMMER OLYMPICS --
 VCR PLUS+(R) CAPTURES THE MOMENT AS THE U.S. GOES FOR THE GOLD
 LOS ANGELES, July 8 /PRNewswire/ -- This summer there are two ways to ensure not missing a moment of all the exciting coverage from the Summer Olympic Games -- by pitching a tent in front of the TV set for two full weeks or by purchasing VCR Plus+(R), the only one-step VCR programming device.
 With VCR Plus+, consumers have the freedom to take a summer vacation, go to the beach, or watch something else on TV and have confidence that their VCR is recording their favorite Olympic sporting events. VCR Plus+ controls the VCR and changes the channels on the cable box so that consumers can record Olympics coverage as well as other TV and cable TV programs. In addition, consumers can elect to tape Olympic coverage offered through the special cable TV pay-per-view event, the Olympics TripleCast.
 VCR Plus+ is compatible with virtually all VCRs with wireless remotes.
 To record a desired TV or cable TV program, simply punch in the show's VCR PlusCode(TM) number, printed next to individual television program listings found in 400 newspapers nationwide and TV GUIDE -- VCR Plus+ does the rest. When the program is about to start, VCR Plus+ turns on the VCR then sets the VCR or cable box to the correct channel and automatically records the program for the appropriate length of time.
 VCR Plus+ offers three-show recording options: once, weekly or daily and can store up to 14 program choices at a time, which is double or triple the capacity of most VCRs. In addition, VCR Plus+ calculates how much tape is needed in the next 24 hours. Suggested retail price of VCR Plus+ is $59.95.
 VCR Plus+, introduced in November 1990, is currently available in 24,000 retail chains, department stores and mass merchandisers such as Circuit City, KMART, Montgomery Ward, Sears Brand Central, Silo, Radio Shack and Target. With VCR Plus+, 70 million U.S. VCR owners now have the ability to program their VCRs with speed and ease.
 Gemstar Development Corp., a privately held California-based company, was formed to develop and market technological products which simplify life for the consumer. The company is headquartered in Pasadena, Calif.
