Liberty Global, Inc. Research Report

In the fourth quarter of 2012, Liberty Global achieved its strongest
subscriber growth ever. The company also added 465,000 organic RGUs during the
quarter, summing up to 1.6 million for the full year. The positive results
were driven by the success of its triple-play bundles, leveraging superior
broadband speeds and resulting in record yearly broadband internet and
telephony subscriber additions. The introduction of Horizon TV in the Dutch
and Swiss market also made significant progress on Liberty Global's product
roadmap. Because of the solid subscriber additions, revenue grew seven percent
in the fourth quarter to $2.7 billion. Considering the solid fourth quarter,
Liberty Global is optimistic regarding its 2013 prospects and began the year
with strong operating momentum. The company's optimistic outlook is also
fueled by the pending acquisition of Virgin Media, expected to be completed in
the second quarter. First quarter results are scheduled to be released on May
6. The Full Research Report on Liberty Global, Inc. - including full detailed

momentum, thanks to its highest fourth quarter domestic viewership results.
For the year ahead, the company will continue investing in strategic growth
initiatives to deliver long-term financial results and shareholder value. In

Cablevision Systems Corporation Research Report

With a federal antitrust lawsuit against Viacom on the way, Cablevision posted
higher fourth quarter earnings, slightly offset by superstorm Sandy. Viacom
allegedly was illegally forcing cable providers to purchase programming
services. The entertainment content company forced Cablevision to carry and
pay for 14 lesser-watched ancillary networks in order to carry must-have
networks. If ever Cablevision wins this case, it may put an end to forced
bundling altogether, opening an opportunity for cable providers to reach
households that refuse to pay for expensive packages, resulting to a larger
customer base. The opportunity would also allow premium channels to become
more accessible. The company's fourth quarter cable advertising revenue grew
17.6 percent. On April 29 Cablevision will release its fort quarter results
for 2013. The Full Research Report on Cablevision Systems Corporation -
