                        Ulster Television plc ('UTV')

                       Acquisition of County Media Ltd

On 29th January 2001, the Independent Radio and Television Commission ('IRTC')
issued its decision regarding UTV's proposed acquisition of County Media Ltd.

The IRTC said that it was 'not prepared to approve the present application'
and the Board of UTV is awaiting a detailed explanation as to the reasons for
this decision. The Board notes the Commission's decision to carry out a full
review of its policy in April. A further statement will be made by UTV as soon
as the situation can be fully and properly assessed.
