Live TV to Stop Broadcasting

Trinity Mirror PLC
5 November 1999


                        Trinity Mirror plc ('the Group')

                             STATEMENT RE: LIVE TV
                                   
The Board of Trinity Mirror plc ('Trinity Mirror') has reluctantly reached the
decision that Live TV will cease broadcasting.

The Group has received a total consideration of £10 million for its carriage
agreements and a further £5 million for entering into two further agreements.
One to ensure the surrender of the broadcasting licence utilized by Live TV
and the other a non-compete undertaking.

This agreement has been achieved with CPP1, a consortium of cable operators,
which prior to this had a ten per cent holding in Live TV. Trinity Mirror will
therefore cease broadcasting Live TV as of Friday 5 November and will be
responsible for closure costs in the region of £5 million.

The Group's wholly owned cable advertising sales house which sells cable
advertising to a variety of clients is not part of this agreement.
