Item 5.  Other Events.

         On January 7, 1994, Viacom Inc., a Delaware
corporation (the "Company"), and Blockbuster Entertainment
Corporation, a Delaware corporation ("Blockbuster"), entered
into an Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of January 7,
1994 (the "Merger Agreement"), providing for the merger of
Blockbuster with and into the Company, with the Company as the
surviving corporation (the "Merger").  The Merger is intended
to qualify as a tax-free reorganization for federal income tax
purposes.

         The Merger Agreement provides that, at the effective
time of the Merger, each share of common stock, par value $.10
per share, of Blockbuster ("Blockbuster Common Stock"), will be
converted into the right to receive (i) .08 of one share of
Class A common stock, par value $.01 per share, of the Company
("Class A Common Stock"), (ii) .60615 of one share of Class B
common stock, par value $.01 per share, of the Company ("Class B
 Common Stock") and (iii) up to an additional .13829 of one
share of Class B Common Stock, with such amount to be
determined in accordance with, and the right to receive such
shares to be evidenced by, one variable common right (a "VCR")
issued by the Company and having the terms described in the
Merger Agreement.

         Consummation of the Merger is subject to certain
conditions, including, among other things, approval of the
Merger by the stockholders of the Company and Blockbuster, the
expiration or termination of the waiting period under the
Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, receipt
of certain regulatory approvals and confirmation that the
Merger qualifies as a tax-free reorganization for federal
income tax purposes.  In addition, the Merger Agreement
provides that Blockbuster will reimburse the Company for its
transaction-related expenses if the Merger Agreement is
terminated and certain other conditions are met, up to a
maximum of $50 million.

         A copy of the Merger Agreement is attached hereto as
Exhibit 2.1 and the summary of the Merger Agreement set forth
herein is qualified in its entirety by reference thereto.

         In connection with the execution of the Merger
Agreement, the Company and certain stockholders of Blockbuster
entered into a Stockholders Stock Option Agreement, dated as of
January 7, 1994 (the "Stock Option Agreement"), pursuant to
which such stockholders granted to the Company irrevocable
options to purchase up to 15,004,970 shares of Blockbuster
Common Stock (the "Option Shares") at an exercise price of
$30.125 per share (the "Options").  The Options will become
exercisable if the Merger Agreement is




                                    Page   2

terminated under certain circumstances.  In addition, such
stockholders granted to the Company proxies to vote the Option
Shares in favor of the Merger and against any competing
business combination proposal.  Also, the Company and certain
additional stockholders of Blockbuster entered into a Proxy
Agreement, dated as of January 7, 1994 (the "Proxy Agreement"),
pursuant to which such stockholders granted to the Company
proxies to vote the shares of Blockbuster Common Stock held by
such stockholders in favor of the Merger and against any
competing business combination proposal.

         Copies of the Stock Option Agreement and the Proxy
Agreement are attached hereto as Exhibits 99.1 and 99.2,
respectively, and the summaries of the Stock Option Agreement
and the Proxy Agreement set forth herein are qualified in their
entirety by reference thereto.

         In addition, Blockbuster and National Amusements,
Inc., the majority stockholder of the Company ("NAI"), have
entered into a Voting Agreement, dated as of January 7, 1994
(the "Voting Agreement"), pursuant to which NAI has agreed to
vote the shares of Class A Common Stock held by it in favor of
the Merger and the Merger Agreement at any meeting of the
stockholders of the Company and in any action by consent of the
stockholders of the Company.

         A copy of the Voting Agreement is attached hereto as
Exhibit 99.3 and the summary of the Voting Agreement set forth
herein is qualified in its entirety by reference thereto.

         Also on January 7, 1994, Blockbuster and the Company
entered into an agreement (the "Subscription Agreement")
pursuant to which Blockbuster has subscribed for and agreed to
purchase, and the Company has agreed to issue and sell to
Blockbuster, on the terms and subject to the conditions set
forth in the Subscription Agreement, 22,727,273 shares of Class
B Common Stock for an aggregate purchase price of
$1,250,000,015.  The Subscription Agreement provides for the
payment to Blockbuster, in certain circumstances, of a
Make-Whole Amount (as defined in the Subscription Agreement) of
up to $275 million in the event of termination of the Merger
Agreement (except termination pursuant to Section 8.01(b)
thereof).

         NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing and
the respective representations, warranties, covenants and
agreements set forth in this Agreement, the parties hereto
agree as follows:


                           ARTICLE I

                           THE MERGER

         SECTION 1.01.  The Merger.  Upon the terms and subject
to the conditions set forth in this Agreement, and in
accordance with Delaware Law, at the Effective Time (as defined
in Section 1.03), Blockbuster shall be merged with and into
Viacom.  As a result of the Merger, the separate corporate
existence of Blockbuster shall cease and Viacom shall continue
as the surviving corporation of the Merger (the "Surviving
Corporation").

         SECTION 1.02.  Closing.  Unless this Agreement shall
have been terminated and the transactions herein contemplated
shall have been abandoned pursuant to Section 8.01 and subject
to the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions set forth in
Article VII, the consummation of the Merger will take place as
promptly as practicable (and in any event within two business
days) after satisfaction or waiver of the conditions set forth
in Article VII at the offices of Shearman & Sterling, 599
Lexington Avenue, New York, New York, unless another date, time
or place is agreed to in writing by the parties hereto.

         SECTION 1.03.  Effective Time.  As promptly as
practicable after the satisfaction or, if permissible, waiver
of the conditions set forth in Article VII, the parties hereto
shall cause the Merger to be consummated by filing a
certificate of merger (the "Certificate of Merger") with the
Secretary of State of the State of Delaware in such form as
required by, and executed in accordance with the relevant
provisions of, Delaware Law (the date and time of such filing,
or such later date or time as set forth therein,  being the
"Effective Time").

         SECTION 1.04.  Effect of the Merger.  At the Effective
Time, the effect of the Merger shall be as provided in the
applicable provisions of Delaware Law.  Without limiting the
generality of the foregoing, and subject thereto, at the
Effective Time, except as otherwise provided herein, all the
property, rights, privileges, powers and franchises of Viacom
and Blockbuster shall vest in the Surviving Corporation, and
all debts, liabilities and duties
















<PAGE>

of Viacom and Blockbuster shall become the debts, liabilities
and duties of the Surviving Corporation.

         SECTION 1.05.  Certificate of Incorporation; By-Laws.
At the Effective Time the Certificate of Incorporation and the
By-Laws of Viacom, as in effect immediately prior to the
Effective Time, shall be the Certificate of Incorporation and
the By-Laws of the Surviving Corporation.


                           ARTICLE II

       CONVERSION OF SECURITIES; EXCHANGE OF CERTIFICATES

         SECTION 2.01.  Conversion of Securities.  At the
Effective Time, by virtue of the Merger and without any action
on the part of Viacom, Blockbuster or the holders of any of the
following securities:

         (a)  Each share of common stock, par value $.10 per
    share, of Blockbuster ("Blockbuster Common Stock"), issued
    and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time
    (other than any shares of Blockbuster Common Stock to be
    canceled pursuant to Section 2.01(b) and any Dissenting
    Shares (if applicable and as defined in Section 2.05)),
    shall be converted, subject to Section 2.02(d), into the
    right to receive (x) .08 of one share of Viacom Class A
    Common Stock (the "Class A Exchange Ratio"), (y) .60615 of
    one share of Class B Common Stock, par value $.01 per share
    ("Viacom Class B Common Stock", and together with the
    Viacom Class A Common Stock, the "Viacom Common Stock"), of
    Viacom (the "Class B Exchange Ratio") and (z) up to an
    additional .13829 of one share of Viacom Class B Common
    Stock, with such amount to be determined in accordance
    with, and the right to receive such shares to be evidenced
    by, one  variable  common   right (a "VCR")  issued  by
    Viacom having the principal terms described in Annex A (the
    "VCR Exchange Ratio"; together with the Class A and Class B
    Exchange Ratios, the "Exchange Ratios"); provided, however,
    that, in any event, if between the date of this Agreement
    and the Effective Time the outstanding shares of Viacom
    Common Stock or Blockbuster Common Stock shall have been
    changed into a different number of shares or a different
    class, by reason of any stock dividend, subdivision,
    reclassification, recapitalization, split, combination or
    exchange of shares, the Exchange Ratios shall be
    correspondingly adjusted to reflect such stock dividend,
    subdivision, reclassification, recapitalization, split,

















<PAGE>

    combination or exchange of shares.  All such shares of
    Blockbuster Common Stock shall no longer be outstanding and
    shall automatically be canceled and retired and shall cease
    to exist, and each certificate previously evidencing any
    such shares shall thereafter represent the right to
    receive, upon the surrender of such certificate in
    accordance with the provisions of Section 2.02,
    certificates evidencing (i) such number of whole shares of
    Viacom Common Stock into which such Blockbuster Common
    Stock was converted in accordance with the Class A and
    Class B Exchange Ratios and (ii) such number of VCRs into
    which such Blockbuster Common Stock was converted in
    accordance with the VCR Exchange Ratio.  The holders of
    such certificates previously evidencing such shares of
    Blockbuster Common Stock outstanding immediately prior to
    the Effective Time shall cease to have any rights with
    respect to such shares of Blockbuster Common Stock except
    as otherwise provided herein or by law.  No fractional
    share of Viacom Common Stock shall be issued; and, in lieu
    thereof, a cash payment shall be made pursuant to Section
    2.02(d).

         (b)  Each share of Blockbuster Common Stock held in
    the treasury of Blockbuster and each share of Blockbuster
    Common Stock owned by Viacom or any direct or indirect
    wholly owned subsidiary of Viacom or of Blockbuster
    immediately prior to the Effective Time shall automatically
    be canceled and extinguished without any conversion thereof
    and no payment shall be made with respect thereto.

         SECTION 2.02.  Exchange of Certificates and Cash.  (a)
Exchange Agent.  Viacom shall deposit, or shall cause to be
deposited, with or for the account of a bank or trust company
designated by Viacom, which shall be reasonably satisfactory to
Blockbuster (the "Exchange Agent"), for the benefit of the
holders of shares of Blockbuster Common Stock (other than
Dissenting Shares, if applicable), for exchange in accordance
with this Article II, through the Exchange Agent, at the
Effective Time, (i) certificates evidencing the shares of
Viacom Common Stock and the VCRs issuable pursuant to
Section 2.01 in exchange for outstanding shares of Blockbuster
Common Stock and (ii) upon the request of the Exchange Agent,
cash in an amount sufficient to make any cash payment due under
Section 2.02(d) (such certificates for shares of Viacom Common
Stock, together with any dividends or distributions with
respect thereto, the VCRs and cash being hereafter collectively
referred to as the "Exchange Fund").  The Exchange Agent shall,
pursuant to irrevocable instructions, deliver the Viacom Common
Stock and VCRs
















<PAGE>

contemplated to be issued pursuant to Section 2.01 out of the
Exchange Fund to holders of shares of Blockbuster Common Stock.
Except as contemplated by Section 2.02(d) hereof, the Exchange
Fund shall not be used for any other purpose.  Any interest,
dividends or other income earned on the investment of cash or
other property held in the Exchange Fund shall be for the
account of Viacom.

         (b)  Exchange Procedures.  As soon as reasonably
practicable after the Effective Time, Viacom will instruct the
Exchange Agent to mail to each holder of record of a
certificate or certificates which immediately prior to the
Effective Time evidenced outstanding shares of Blockbuster
Common Stock (other than Dissenting Shares, if applicable) (the
"Certificates") (i) a letter of transmittal (which shall
specify that delivery shall be effected, and risk of loss and
title to the Certificates shall pass, only upon proper delivery
of the Certificates to the Exchange Agent and shall be in such
form and have such other provisions as Viacom may reasonably
specify) and (ii) instructions to effect the surrender of the
Certificates in exchange for the certificates evidencing shares
of Viacom Common Stock and the VCRs and cash (if any).  Upon
surrender of a Certificate for cancellation to the Exchange
Agent together with such letter of transmittal, duly executed,
and such other customary documents as may be required pursuant
to such instructions, the holder of such Certificate shall be
entitled to receive in exchange therefor (A) certificates
evidencing that number of whole shares of Viacom Common Stock
and VCRs that such holder has the right to receive in
accordance with the Exchange Ratios in respect of the shares of
Blockbuster Common Stock formerly evidenced by such
Certificate, (B) any dividends or other distributions to which
such holder is entitled pursuant to Section 2.02(c) and (C)
cash in lieu of fractional shares of Viacom Common Stock to
which such holder is entitled pursuant to Section 2.02(d) (the
shares of Viacom Common Stock, the VCRs and the dividends,
distributions and cash described in clauses (A), (B) and (C)
being, collectively, the "Merger Consideration"), and the
Certificate so surrendered shall forthwith be canceled.  In the
event of a transfer of ownership of shares of Blockbuster
Common Stock that is not registered in the transfer records of
Blockbuster, shares of Viacom Common Stock and VCRs may be
issued and paid in accordance with this Article II to a
transferee if the Certificate evidencing such shares of
Blockbuster Common Stock is presented to the Exchange Agent,
accompanied by all documents required to evidence and effect
such transfer and by evidence that any applicable stock
transfer taxes have been paid.  Until surrendered as
contemplated by this Section 2.02, each Certificate shall be
















<PAGE>

deemed at any time after the Effective Time to evidence only
the right to receive upon such surrender the Merger
Consideration.

         (c)  Distributions with Respect to Unexchanged Shares
of Viacom Common Stock.  No dividends or other distributions
declared or made after the Effective Time with respect to
Viacom Common Stock with a record date after the Effective Time
shall be paid to the holder of any unsurrendered Certificate
with respect to the shares of Viacom Common Stock they are
entitled to receive until the holder of such Certificate shall
surrender such Certificate.

         (d)  Fractional Shares.  No fraction of a share of
Viacom Common Stock shall be issued in the Merger.  In lieu of
any such fractional shares, each holder of Blockbuster Common
Stock upon surrender of a Certificate for exchange pursuant to
this Section 2.02 shall be paid an amount in cash (without
interest), rounded to the nearest cent, determined by
multiplying (i) the per share closing price on the American
Stock Exchange ("AMEX") of Viacom Class A Common Stock or
Viacom Class B Common Stock, as the case may be, on the date of
the Effective Time (or, if shares of Viacom Class A Common
Stock or Viacom Class B Common Stock, as the case may be, do
not trade on the AMEX on such date, the first date of trading
of such Viacom Common Stock on the AMEX after the Effective
Time) by (ii) the fractional interest to which such holder
would otherwise be entitled (after taking into account all
shares of Blockbuster Common Stock then held of record by such
holder).

         (e)  Termination of Exchange Fund.  Any portion of the
Exchange Fund that remains undistributed to the holders of
Blockbuster Common Stock for six months after the Effective
Time shall be delivered to Viacom, upon demand, and any holders
of Blockbuster Common Stock who have not theretofore complied
with this Article II shall thereafter look only to Viacom for
the Merger Consideration to which they are entitled pursuant to
this Article II.

         (f)  No Liability.  Neither Viacom nor Blockbuster
shall be liable to any holder of shares of Blockbuster Common
Stock for any such shares of Viacom Common Stock (or dividends
or distributions with respect thereto) or VCRs from the
Exchange Fund delivered to a public official pursuant to any
applicable abandoned property, escheat or similar law.

         (g)  Withholding Rights.  Viacom or the Exchange Agent
shall be entitled to deduct and withhold from the consideration
otherwise payable pursuant to this Agreement to















<PAGE>

any holder of shares of Blockbuster Common Stock such amounts
as Viacom or the Exchange Agent is required to deduct and
withhold with respect to the making of such payment under the
Code, or any provision of state, local or foreign tax law.  To
the extent that amounts are so withheld by Viacom or the
Exchange Agent, such withheld amounts shall be treated for all
purposes of this Agreement as having been paid to the holder of
the shares of Blockbuster Common Stock in respect of which such
deduction and withholding was made by Viacom or the Exchange
Agent.

         SECTION 2.03.  Stock Transfer Books.  At the Effective
Time, the stock transfer books of Blockbuster shall be closed,
and there shall be no further registration of transfers of
shares of Blockbuster Common Stock thereafter on the records of
Blockbuster.  On or after the Effective Time, any Certificates
presented to the Exchange Agent or Viacom for any reason shall
be converted into the Merger Consideration.

         SECTION 2.04.  Stock Options.  At the Effective Time,
Blockbuster's obligations with respect to each outstanding
Blockbuster Stock Option (as defined in Section 3.03) to
purchase shares of Blockbuster Common Stock, as amended in the
manner described in the following sentence, shall be assumed by
Viacom.  The Blockbuster Stock Options so assumed by Viacom
shall continue to have, and be subject to, the same terms and
conditions as set forth in the stock option plans and
agreements pursuant to which such Blockbuster Stock Options
were issued as in effect immediately prior to the Effective
Time, except that each such Blockbuster Stock Option shall be
exercisable for (A) that number of whole shares of (i) Viacom
Class A Common Stock equal to the product of the number of
shares of Blockbuster Common Stock covered by such Blockbuster
Stock Option immediately prior to the Effective Time multiplied
by the Class A Exchange Ratio and rounded up to the nearest
whole number of shares of Viacom Class A Common Stock and (ii)
Viacom Class B Common Stock equal to the product of the number
of shares of Blockbuster Common Stock covered by such
Blockbuster Stock Option immediately prior to the Effective
Time multiplied by the Class B Exchange Ratio and rounded up to
the nearest whole number of shares of Viacom Class B Common
Stock and (B) that number of VCRs equal to the product of the
number of shares of Blockbuster Common Stock covered by such
Blockbuster Stock Option immediately prior to the Effective
Time multiplied by the VCR Exchange Ratio.  Each warrant held by
employees or directors of Blockbuster shall be converted into a
Viacom warrant on the same terms and conditions except that each
such warrant shall be exercisable for (A) that number of whole
shares of (i) Viacom Class A Common Stock equal to the product
of the number of shares of Blockbuster Common Stock covered by
such warrant immediately prior to the Effective Time multiplied by
the Class A Exchange Ratio and rounded up to the nearest whole
number of shares of Viacom Class A Common Stock and (ii) Viacom
Class B Common Stock equal to the product of the number of shares
of Blockbuster Common Stock covered by such warrant immediately prior
to the Effective Time multiplied by the Class B Exchange Ratio and
rounded up to the nearest whole number of shares of Viacom Class B
Common Stock and (B) that number of VCRs equal to the product of the
number of shares of Blockbuster Common Stock covered by such warrant
immediately prior to the Effective Time multiplied by the VCR Exchange
Ratio.  Viacom shall (i) reserve for issuance the number of shares
of Viacom Common Stock that will become issuable upon the exercise
of such Blockbuster Stock Options pursuant to this Section 2.04

















<PAGE>

and (ii) promptly after the Effective Time issue to each holder
of an outstanding Blockbuster Stock Option a document
evidencing the assumption by Viacom of Blockbuster's
obligations with respect thereto under this Section 2.04.
Nothing in this Section 2.04 shall affect the schedule of
vesting with respect to the Blockbuster Stock Options to be
assumed by Viacom as provided in this Section 2.04; provided,
however, that Blockbuster and Viacom shall use their best
efforts to secure from each of the executives previously
identified by mutual agreement of Blockbuster and Viacom (the
"Designated Executives"), as promptly as practicable following
the execution of this Agreement, a waiver of (i) the
accelerated vesting of Blockbuster Stock Options held by such
Designated Executive (such waiver to lapse (and vesting of such
Blockbuster Stock Option to occur if such option has not
already vested in accordance with the applicable vesting
schedule) upon the termination of such Designated Executive's
employment with Blockbuster or Viacom for any reason) and (ii)
the triggering of the right of such Designated Executive to
cause Blockbuster to acquire his Blockbuster Stock Options for
cash, in each case resulting from the execution of this
Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby, in
consideration for Blockbuster entering into an employment
agreement acceptable to Blockbuster and Viacom with such
Designated Executive.  In addition to the adjustment provided
by Section 2.04, effective as of the Effective Time, the
terms of each Blockbuster Stock Option held by a Blockbuster
employee who as of the date hereof is not subject to the
reporting requirements of Section 16(a) of the Exchange Act,
and, subject, at Blockbuster's discretion, to any stockholder
approvals it determines are necessary, any non employee director,
shall be amended to provide that, if such Blockbuster
employee's employment is terminated without cause, or such
directorship shall cease, such  Blockbuster Stock Option shall not
expire prior to the second  anniversary of the Effective Time;
provided, however, that in no event shall the maximum term of such
Blockbuster Stock Option be extended.

         SECTION 2.05.  Dissenting Shares.  (a)  If provided
for under Delaware Law, notwithstanding any other provision of
this Agreement to the contrary, shares of Blockbuster Common
Stock that are outstanding immediately prior to the Effective
Time and which are held by stockholders who shall have not
voted in favor of the Merger or consented thereto in writing
and who shall have demanded properly in writing appraisal for
such shares in accordance with Section 262 of Delaware Law and
who shall not have withdrawn such demand or otherwise have
forfeited appraisal rights (collectively, the "Dissenting
Shares") shall not be converted into or represent the right to
receive the Merger Consideration.  Such stockholders shall be
entitled to receive payment of the appraised value of such
shares of Blockbuster Common Stock held by them in accordance
with the provisions of such















<PAGE>

Section 262, except that all Dissenting Shares held by
stockholders who shall have failed to perfect or who
effectively shall have withdrawn or lost their rights to
appraisal of such shares of Blockbuster Common Stock under such
Section 262 shall thereupon be deemed to have been converted
into and to have become exchangeable, as of the Effective Time,
for the right to receive, without any interest thereon, the
Merger Consideration, upon surrender, in the manner provided in
Section 2.02, of the certificate or certificates that formerly
evidenced such shares of Blockbuster Common Stock.

         (b)  Blockbuster shall give Viacom (i) prompt notice
of any demands for appraisal received by Blockbuster,
withdrawals of such demands, and any other instruments served
pursuant to Delaware Law and received by Blockbuster and (ii)
the opportunity to direct all negotiations and proceedings with
respect to demands for appraisal under Delaware Law.
Blockbuster shall not, except with the prior written consent of
Viacom, make any payment with respect to any demands for
appraisal, or offer to settle, or settle, any such demands.


                          ARTICLE III

         REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES OF BLOCKBUSTER

         Blockbuster hereby represents and warrants to Viacom
that:

         SECTION 3.01.  Organization and Qualification;
Subsidiaries.  (a)  Each of Blockbuster and each Material
Blockbuster Subsidiary (as defined below) is a corporation,
partnership or other legal entity duly organized, validly
existing and in good standing under the laws of the
jurisdiction of its incorporation or organization and has the
requisite power and authority and all necessary governmental
approvals to own, lease and operate its properties and to carry
on its business as it is now being conducted, except where the
failure to be so organized, existing or in good standing or to
have such power, authority and governmental approvals would
not, individually or in the aggregate, have a Blockbuster
Material Adverse Effect (as defined below).  Blockbuster and
each Material Blockbuster Subsidiary are duly qualified or
licensed as foreign corporations to do business, and are in
good standing, in each jurisdiction where the character of the
properties owned, leased or operated by them or the nature of
their business makes such qualification or licensing necessary,
except for such failures to be so qualified or licensed and in
good standing that would not,
















<PAGE>

individually or in the aggregate, have a Blockbuster Material
Adverse Effect.  The term "Blockbuster Material Adverse Effect"
means any change or effect that is or would be materially
adverse to the business, results of operations or financial
condition of Blockbuster and the Blockbuster Subsidiaries,
taken as a whole; provided that from and after the date on
which the issuance and sale of shares of Viacom Class B Common
Stock contemplated by the Subscription Agreement (the
"Subscription Agreement") dated as of the date of this
Agreement between Viacom and Blockbuster is consummated (the
"Subscription Date"), the term "Blockbuster Material Adverse
Effect", for purposes of Article III and Section 7.02(a) only,
shall be changed to mean any change or effect that is or would
be materially adverse to the financial condition of Blockbuster
and the Blockbuster Subsidiaries, taken as a whole, excluding
any changes or effects caused by changes in general economic
conditions or changes generally affecting Blockbuster's
industry..

         (b)  Each subsidiary of Blockbuster (a "Blockbuster
Subsidiary") that constitutes a Significant Subsidiary of
Blockbuster within the meaning of Rule 1-02 of Regulation S-X
of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") is
referred to herein as a "Material Blockbuster Subsidiary".

         SECTION 3.02.  Certificate of Incorporation and
By-Laws.  Blockbuster has heretofore made available to Viacom a
complete and correct copy of the Certificate of Incorporation
and the By-Laws or equivalent organizational documents, each as
amended to date, of Blockbuster and each Material Blockbuster
Subsidiary.  Such Certificates of Incorporation, By-Laws and
equivalent organizational documents are in full force and
effect.  Neither Blockbuster nor any Material Blockbuster
Subsidiary is in violation of any provision of its Certificate
of Incorporation, By-Laws or equivalent organizational
documents, except for such violations that would not,
individually or in the aggregate, have a Blockbuster Material
Adverse Effect.

         SECTION 3.03.  Capitalization.  The authorized capital
stock of Blockbuster consists of 300,000,000 shares of
Blockbuster Common Stock and 500,000 shares of Preferred Stock,
par value $1.00 per share ("Blockbuster Preferred Stock").  As
of December 31, 1993, (i) 247,487,375 shares of Blockbuster
Common Stock were issued and outstanding, all of which were
validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable, (ii) no shares

Stock Option Plan, as amended, 1990 Stock Option Plan, as
amended, 1991 Employee Director Stock Option Plan, 1991
Non-Employee Director Stock Option Plan and any other employee
stock option plan or program (any employee or director stock
option issued under any such plan being a "Blockbuster Stock
Option") and (iv) 7,138,859 shares were reserved for future
issuance pursuant to the terms of outstanding warrants to
purchase shares of Blockbuster Common Stock.  As of the date
hereof, no shares of Blockbuster Preferred Stock are issued
and  outstanding.  Except  as  set  forth  in Section 3.03
of  the  Disclosure  Schedule  previously  delivered  by
Blockbuster  to  Viacom  (the  "Blockbuster  Disclosure
Schedule"), or except as set forth in this Section 3.03, there
are no options, warrants or other rights, agreements,
arrangements or commitments of any character relating to the
issued or unissued capital stock of Blockbuster or any Material
Blockbuster Subsidiary or obligating Blockbuster or any
Material Blockbuster Subsidiary to issue or sell any shares of
capital stock of, or other equity interests in, Blockbuster or
any Material Blockbuster Subsidiary.  All shares of Blockbuster
Common Stock subject to issuance as aforesaid, upon issuance on
the terms and conditions specified in the instruments pursuant
to which they are issuable, will be duly authorized, validly
issued, fully paid and nonassessable.  Except as set forth in
Section 3.03 of the Blockbuster Disclosure Schedule, there are
no material outstanding contractual obligations of Blockbuster
or any Blockbuster Subsidiary to repurchase, redeem or
otherwise acquire any shares of Blockbuster Common Stock or any
capital stock of any Material Blockbuster Subsidiary, or make
any material investment (in the form of a loan, capital
contribution or otherwise) in, any Blockbuster Subsidiary or
any other person.  Each outstanding share of capital stock of
each Material Blockbuster Subsidiary is duly authorized,
validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable and each such
share owned by Blockbuster or another Blockbuster Subsidiary is
free and clear of all security interests, liens, claims,
pledges, options, rights of first refusal, agreements,
limitations on Blockbuster's or such other Blockbuster
Subsidiary's voting rights, charges and other encumbrances of
any nature whatsoever.

         SECTION 3.04.  Authority Relative to this Agreement.
Blockbuster has all necessary power and authority to execute
and deliver this Agreement, to perform its obligations
hereunder and to consummate the transactions















                               12



<PAGE>


contemplated hereby.  The execution and delivery of this
Agreement by Blockbuster and the consummation by Blockbuster of
the transactions contemplated hereby have been duly and validly
authorized by all necessary corporate action and no other
corporate proceedings on the part of Blockbuster are necessary
to authorize this Agreement or to consummate the transactions
contemplated herein (other than, with respect to the Merger,
the approval and adoption of this Agreement by the holders of a
majority of the then outstanding shares of Blockbuster Common
Stock and the filing and recordation of appropriate merger
documents as required by Delaware Law).  This Agreement has
been duly and validly executed and delivered by Blockbuster
and, assuming the due authorization, execution and delivery by
Viacom, constitutes a legal, valid and binding obligation of
Blockbuster, enforceable against Blockbuster in accordance with
its terms, subject to the effect of any applicable bankruptcy,
reorganization, insolvency, moratorium or similar laws
affecting creditors' rights generally and subject, as to
enforceability, to the effect of general principles of equity
(regardless of whether such enforceability is considered in a
proceeding in equity or at law).  Blockbuster has taken all
appropriate actions so that the restrictions on business
combinations contained in Section 203 of Delaware Law and
Article 6 of Blockbuster's Certificate of Incorporation will
not apply with respect to or as a result of the transactions
contemplated herein or related hereto.

         SECTION 3.05.  No Conflict; Required Filings and
Consents.  (a)  Except as set forth in Section 3.05 of the
Blockbuster Disclosure Schedule, the execution and delivery of
this Agreement by Blockbuster do not, and the performance of
the transactions contemplated herein by Blockbuster will not,
(i) conflict with or violate the Certificate of Incorporation
or By-Laws or equivalent organizational documents of
Blockbuster or any Material Blockbuster Subsidiary, (ii)
conflict with or violate any law, rule, regulation, order,
judgment or decree applicable to Blockbuster or any Blockbuster
Subsidiary or by which any property or asset of Blockbuster or
any Blockbuster Subsidiary is bound or affected, or (iii)
result in any breach of or constitute a default (or an event
which with notice or lapse of time or both would become a
default) under, result in the loss of a material benefit under,
or give to others any right of termination, amendment,
acceleration or cancellation of, or result in the creation of a
lien or other encumbrance on any property or asset of
Blockbuster or any Blockbuster Subsidiary pursuant to, any
note, bond, mortgage, indenture, contract, agreement, lease,
license, permit, franchise or other instrument or obligation












                               13

to which Blockbuster or any Blockbuster Subsidiary is a party
or by which Blockbuster or any Blockbuster Subsidiary or any
property or asset of Blockbuster or any Blockbuster Subsidiary
is bound or affected, except, in the case of clauses (ii) and
(iii), for any such conflicts, violations, breaches, defaults
or other occurrences which would not prevent or delay
consummation of the Merger in any material respect, or
otherwise prevent Blockbuster from performing its obligations
under this Agreement in any material respect, and would not,
individually or in the aggregate, have a Blockbuster Material
Adverse Effect.

         (b)  The execution and delivery of this Agreement by
Blockbuster do not, and the performance of this Agreement by
Blockbuster will not, require any consent, approval,
authorization or permit of, or filing with or notification to,
any governmental or regulatory authority, domestic or foreign
(each a "Governmental Entity"), except (i) for (A) applicable
requirements, if any, of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934,
as amended (the "Exchange Act"), the Securities Act of 1933, as
amended (the "Securities Act"), state securities or "blue sky"
laws ("Blue Sky Laws") and state takeover laws, (B) the
pre-merger notification requirements of the Hart-Scott-Rodino
Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended, and the rules
and regulations thereunder (the "HSR Act"), (C) applicable
requirements of the Investment Canada Act of 1985 and the
Competition Act (Canada), (D) filing and recordation of
appropriate merger documents as required by Delaware Law and
(E) any non-United States competition, antitrust and investment
laws and (ii) where failure to obtain such consents, approvals,
authorizations or permits, or to make such filings or
notifications, would not prevent or delay consummation of the
Merger in any material respect, or otherwise prevent
Blockbuster from performing its obligations under this
Agreement in any material respect, and would not, individually
or in the aggregate, have a Blockbuster Material Adverse
Effect.

         SECTION 3.06.  Compliance.  Except as set forth in
Section 3.06 of the Blockbuster Disclosure Schedule, neither
Blockbuster nor any Blockbuster Subsidiary is in conflict with,
or in default or violation of, (i) any law, rule, regulation,
order, judgment or decree (including, without limitation, laws,
rules and regulations relating to franchises) applicable to
Blockbuster or any Blockbuster Subsidiary or by which any
property or asset of Blockbuster or any Blockbuster Subsidiary
is bound or affected, or (ii) any note, bond, mortgage,
indenture, contract, agreement, lease, license, permit,
franchise or other instrument or












                               14



<PAGE>


obligation to which Blockbuster or any Blockbuster Subsidiary
is a party or by which Blockbuster or any Blockbuster
Subsidiary or any property or asset of Blockbuster or any
Blockbuster Subsidiary is bound or affected, except for any
such conflicts, defaults or violations that would not,
individually or in the aggregate, have a Blockbuster Material
Adverse Effect.

         SECTION 3.07.  SEC Filings; Financial Statements.  (a)
Blockbuster has filed all forms, reports and documents required
to be filed by it with the SEC since December 31, 1990 and has
heretofore made available to Viacom, in the form filed with the
SEC (excluding any exhibits thereto), (i) its Annual Reports on
Form 10-K for the years ended December 31, 1990, 1991 and 1992,
respectively, (ii) its Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the
periods ended March 30, 1993, June 30, 1993 and September 30,
1993, (iii) all proxy statements relating to Blockbuster's
meetings of stockholders (whether annual or special) held since
January 1, 1991 and (iv) all other forms, reports and other
registration statements (other than Quarterly Reports on Form
10-Q not referred to in clause (ii) above and preliminary
materials) filed by Blockbuster with the SEC since December 31,
1990 (the forms, reports and other documents referred to in
clauses (i), (ii), (iii) and (iv) above being referred to
herein, collectively, as the "Blockbuster SEC Reports").  The
Blockbuster SEC Reports and any forms, reports and other
documents filed by Blockbuster with the SEC after the date of
this Agreement (x) were or will be prepared in accordance with
the requirements of the Securities Act and the Exchange Act, as
the case may be, and the rules and regulations thereunder and
(y) did not at the time they were filed, or will not at the
time they are filed, contain any untrue statement of a material
fact or omit to state a material fact required to be stated
therein or necessary in order to make the statements made
therein, in the light of circumstances under which they were
made, not misleading.  No Material Blockbuster Subsidiary,
except for Spelling Entertainment Group Inc., a Florida
corporation ("Spelling"), is required to file any form, report
or other document with the SEC.

         (b)  Spelling has filed all forms, reports and
documents required to be filed by it with the SEC since
June 30, 1992 and Blockbuster has heretofore made available to
Viacom, in the form filed with the SEC (excluding any exhibits
thereto), (i) Spelling's Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the
periods ended June 30, 1993 and September 30, 1993,
(ii) all proxy statements relating to Spelling's meetings of
stockholders (whether annual or special) held since May 1, 1993
and (iii) all other forms, reports and











                               15


<PAGE>



other registration statements (other than Quarterly Reports on
Form 10-Q not referred to in clause (ii) above and preliminary
materials) filed by Spelling with the SEC since May 1, 1992
(the forms, reports and other documents referred to in clauses
(i), (ii) and (iii) above being referred to herein,
collectively, as the "Spelling SEC Reports").  The Spelling SEC
Reports and any forms, reports and other documents filed by
Spelling with the SEC after the date of this Agreement (x) were
or will be prepared in accordance with the requirements of the
Securities Act and the Exchange Act, as the case may be, and
the rules and regulations thereunder and (y) did not at the
time they were filed, or will not at the time they are filed,
contain any untrue statement of a material fact or omit to
state a material fact required to be stated therein or
necessary in order to make the statements made therein, in
light of the circumstances under which they were made, not
misleading.

         (c)  Each of the consolidated financial statements
(including, in each case, any notes thereto) contained in the
Blockbuster SEC Reports and Spelling SEC Reports was prepared
in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles
applied on a consistent basis throughout the periods indicated
(except as may be indicated in the notes thereto) and each
fairly presented the financial position, results of operations
and cash flows of Blockbuster and the consolidated Blockbuster
Subsidiaries or Spelling and its subsidiaries, as the case may
be, as at the respective dates thereof and for the respective
periods indicated therein (subject, in the case of unaudited
statements, to normal and recurring year-end adjustments which
were not and are not expected, individually or in the
aggregate, to be material in amount).

         (d)  Except as set forth in Section 3.07 of the
Blockbuster Disclosure Schedule or except as and to the extent
set forth in the Blockbuster SEC Reports filed with the SEC
prior to the date of this Agreement, Blockbuster and the
Blockbuster Subsidiaries do not have any liability or
obligation of any nature (whether accrued, absolute, contingent
or otherwise) other than liabilities and obligations which
would not, individually or in the aggregate, have a Blockbuster
Material Adverse Effect.

         SECTION 3.08.  Absence of Certain Changes or Events.
Since December 31, 1992, except as set forth in Section 3.08 of
the Blockbuster Disclosure Schedule, contemplated by this
Agreement or disclosed in any Blockbuster SEC Report filed
since December 31, 1992 and prior to the date of this
Agreement, Blockbuster and the Blockbuster Subsidiaries have
conducted their businesses only







                               16


<PAGE>



in the ordinary course and in a manner consistent with past
practice and, since December 31, 1992, there has not been (i)
any Blockbuster Material Adverse Effect, (ii) any damage,
destruction or loss (whether or not covered by insurance) with
respect to any property or asset of Blockbuster or any
Blockbuster Subsidiary and having, individually or in the
aggregate, a Blockbuster Material Adverse Effect, (iii) any
change by Blockbuster in its accounting methods, principles or
practices, (iv) any declaration, setting aside or payment of
any dividend or distribution in respect of any capital stock of
Blockbuster or any Blockbuster Subsidiary or any redemption,
purchase or other acquisition of any of their respective
securities other than (A) regular quarterly dividends on the
shares of Blockbuster Common Stock not in excess of $0.025 per
share, (B) regular quarterly dividends on the shares of the
common stock of Spelling not in excess of $.020 per share, (C)
dividends by a Blockbuster Subsidiary to Blockbuster and (D) to
fund pre-established dividend reinvestment plans or (v) other
than as set forth in Section 3.03 and pursuant to the plans,
programs or arrangements referred to in Section 3.10 and other
than in the ordinary course of business consistent with past
practice, any increase in or establishment of any bonus,
insurance, severance, deferred compensation, pension,
retirement, profit sharing, stock option (including, without
limitation, the granting of stock options, stock appreciation
rights, performance awards, or restricted stock awards), stock
purchase or other employee benefit plan, or any other increase
in the compensation payable or to become payable to any
officers or key employees of Blockbuster or any Blockbuster
Subsidiary.

         SECTION 3.09.  Absence of Litigation.  Except as set
forth in Section 3.09 of the Blockbuster Disclosure Schedule or
except as disclosed in the Blockbuster SEC Reports filed with
the SEC prior to the date of this Agreement, there is no claim,
action, proceeding or investigation pending or, to the best
knowledge of Blockbuster, threatened against Blockbuster or any
Blockbuster Subsidiary, or any property or asset of Blockbuster
or any Blockbuster Subsidiary, before any court, arbitrator or
administrative, governmental or regulatory authority or body,
domestic or foreign, which, individually or in the aggregate,
would have a Blockbuster Material Adverse Effect.  Except as
disclosed in the Blockbuster SEC Reports filed with the SEC
prior to the date of this Agreement, neither Blockbuster nor
any Blockbuster Subsidiary nor any property or asset of
Blockbuster or any Blockbuster Subsidiary is subject to any
order, writ, judgment, injunction, decree, determination or
award which would have, individually or in the aggregate, a
Blockbuster Material Adverse Effect.











                               17


<PAGE>





         SECTION 3.10.  Employee Benefit Plans.  With respect
to all the employee benefit plans, programs and arrangements
maintained or contributed to by Blockbuster or any Blockbuster
Subsidiary for the benefit of any current or former employee,
officer or director of Blockbuster or any Blockbuster
Subsidiary (the "Blockbuster Plans"), except as set forth in
Section 3.10 of the Blockbuster Disclosure Schedule or the
Blockbuster SEC Reports and except as would not, individually
or in the aggregate, have a Blockbuster Material Adverse
Effect:  (i) each Blockbuster Plan intended to be qualified
under Section 401(a) of the Code has received a favorable
determination letter from the Internal Revenue Service (the
"IRS") that it is so qualified and nothing has occurred since
the date of such letter that could reasonably be expected to
affect the qualified status of such Blockbuster Plan; (ii) each
Blockbuster Plan has been operated in all material respects in
accordance with its terms and the requirements of applicable
law; (iii) neither Blockbuster nor any Blockbuster Subsidiary
has incurred any direct or indirect liability under, arising
out of or by operation of Title IV of the Employee Retirement
Income Security Act of 1974, as amended ("ERISA"), in
connection with the termination of, or withdrawal from, any
Blockbuster Plan or other retirement plan or arrangement, and
no fact or event exists that could reasonably be expected to
give rise to any such liability; and (iv) Blockbuster and the
Blockbuster Subsidiaries have not incurred any liability under,
and have complied in all material respects with, the Worker
Adjustment Retraining Notification Act ("WARN"), and no fact or
event exists that could give rise to liability under such act.
Except as set forth in Section 3.10 of the Blockbuster
Disclosure Schedule, none of the Blockbuster Plans currently
maintained by or contributed to by Blockbuster nor any Plan
maintained by any entity that together with Blockbuster or the
Blockbuster Subsidiaries would be deemed a "single employer"
within the meaning of Section 4001(b) of ERISA (a "Blockbuster
Affiliate Plan") is subject to Title IV of ERISA.  No
Blockbuster Plan or Blockbuster Affiliate Plan has incurred any
"accumulated funding deficiency" (as defined in Section 302 of
ERISA and Section 412 of the Code), whether or not waived as of
the most recently completed plan year of such plan.

         SECTION 3.11.  Trademarks, Patents and Copyrights.
Blockbuster and the Blockbuster Subsidiaries own, or possess
adequate licenses or other valid rights to use, all material
patents, patent rights, trademarks, trademark rights, trade
names, trade name rights, copyrights, service marks, service
mark rights, trade secrets, applications to register, and












                               18



<PAGE>


registrations for, the foregoing trademarks, service marks,
know-how and other proprietary rights and information used in
connection with the business of Blockbuster and the Blockbuster
Subsidiaries as currently conducted, and no assertion or claim
has been made in writing challenging the validity of any of the
foregoing which, individually or in the aggregate, would have a
Blockbuster Material Adverse Effect.  To the best knowledge of
Blockbuster, the conduct of the business of Blockbuster and the
Blockbuster Subsidiaries as currently conducted does not
conflict in any way with any patent, patent right, license,
trademark, trademark right, trade name, trade name right,
service mark or copyright of any third party that, individually
or in the aggregate, would have a Blockbuster Material Adverse
Effect.

         SECTION 3.12.  Taxes.  Except as set forth in Section
3.12 of the Disclosure Schedule, Blockbuster and the
Blockbuster Subsidiaries have timely filed all federal, state,
local and foreign tax returns and reports required to be filed
by them through the date hereof and shall timely file all
returns and reports required on or before the Effective Time,
except for such returns and reports the failure of which to
file timely would not, individually or in the aggregate, have a
Blockbuster Material Adverse Effect.  Such reports and returns
are and will be true, correct and complete, except for such
failures to be true, correct and complete as would not,
individually or in the aggregate, have a Blockbuster Material
Adverse Effect.  Blockbuster and the Blockbuster Subsidiaries
have paid and discharged all federal, state, local and foreign
taxes due from them, other than such taxes that are being
contested in good faith by appropriate proceedings and are
adequately reserved as shown in the audited consolidated
balance sheet of Blockbuster dated December 31, 1992 (the
"Blockbuster 1992 Balance Sheet") and its most recent quarterly
financial statements, except for such failures to so pay and
discharge which would not, individually or in the aggregate,
have a Blockbuster Material Adverse Effect.  Neither the IRS
nor any other taxing authority or agency, domestic or foreign,
is now asserting or, to the best knowledge of Blockbuster,
threatening to assert against Blockbuster or any Blockbuster
Subsidiary any deficiency or material claim for additional
taxes or interest thereon or penalties in connection therewith
which, if such deficiencies or claims were finally resolved
against Blockbuster and the Blockbuster Subsidiaries would,
individually or in the aggregate, have a Blockbuster Material
Adverse Effect.  The accruals and reserves for taxes (including
interest and penalties, if any, thereon) reflected in the
Blockbuster 1992 Balance Sheet and the most recent quarterly
financial statements are adequate in accordance











                               19


<PAGE>



with generally accepted accounting principles, except where the
failure to be adequate would not have a Blockbuster Material
Adverse Effect.  Blockbuster and the Blockbuster Subsidiaries
have withheld or collected and paid over to the appropriate
governmental authorities or are properly holding for such
payment all taxes required by law to be withheld or collected,
except for such failures to have so withheld or collected and
paid over or to be so holding for payment which would not,
individually or in the aggregate, have a Blockbuster Material
Adverse Effect.  There are no material liens for taxes upon the
assets of Blockbuster or the Blockbuster Subsidiaries, other
than liens for current taxes not yet due and payable and liens
for taxes that are being contested in good faith by appropriate
proceedings.  Neither Blockbuster nor any Blockbuster
Subsidiary has agreed to or is required to make any adjustment
under Section 481(a) of the Code.  Neither Blockbuster nor any
Blockbuster Subsidiary has made an election under Section
341(f) of the Code.  For purposes of this Section 3.12, where a
determination of whether a failure by Blockbuster or a
Blockbuster Subsidiary to comply with the representations
herein has a Blockbuster Material Adverse Effect is necessary,
such determination shall be made on an aggregate basis with all
other failures within this Section 3.12.

         SECTION 3.13.  Opinion of Financial Advisor.
Blockbuster has received the opinion of Merrill Lynch, Pierce,
Fenner & Smith Incorporated ("Merrill Lynch"), dated January 7,
1994, to the effect that, as of such date, the Exhange Ratios,
taken as a whole, are fair to the stockholders of Blockbuster
from a financial point of view, a copy of which opinion has
been delivered to Viacom.

         SECTION 3.14.  Vote Required.  The affirmative vote of
the holders of a majority of the outstanding shares of
Blockbuster Common Stock is the only vote of the holders of any
class or series of Blockbuster capital stock necessary to
approve the Merger.

         SECTION 3.15.  Brokers.  No broker, finder or
investment banker (other than Merrill Lynch) is entitled to any
brokerage, finder's or other fee or commission in connection
with the transactions contemplated herein based upon
arrangements made by or on behalf of Blockbuster.  Blockbuster
has heretofore furnished to Viacom a complete and correct copy
of all agreements between Blockbuster and Merrill Lynch
pursuant to which such firm would be entitled to any payment
relating to the transactions contemplated herein.

                           ARTICLE IV

            REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES OF VIACOM

         Viacom hereby represents and warrants to Blockbuster
that:

         SECTION 4.01.  Organization and Qualification;
Subsidiaries.  (a)  Each of Viacom and each Material Viacom
Subsidiary (as defined below) is a corporation, partnership or
other legal entity duly organized, validly existing and in good
standing under the laws of the jurisdiction of its
incorporation or organization and has the requisite power and
authority and all necessary governmental approvals to own,
lease and operate its properties and to carry on its business
as it is now being conducted, except where the failure to be so
organized, existing or in good standing or to have such power,
authority and governmental approvals would not, individually or
in the aggregate, have a Viacom Material Adverse Effect (as
defined below).  Viacom and each Material Viacom Subsidiary is
duly qualified or licensed as a foreign corporation to do
business, and is in good standing, in each jurisdiction where
the character of the properties owned, leased or operated by it
or the nature of its business makes such qualification or
licensing necessary, except for such failures to be so
qualified or licensed and in good standing that would not,
individually or in the aggregate, have a Viacom Material
Adverse Effect.  The term "Viacom Material Adverse Effect"
means any change or effect that is or would be materially
adverse to the business, results of operations or financial
condition of Viacom and the Viacom Subsidiaries, taken as a
whole; provided that from and after the Subscription Date, the
term "Viacom Material Adverse Effect", for purposes of Article
IV and Section 7.03(a) only, shall be changed to mean any
change or effect that is or would be materially adverse to the
financial condition of Viacom and the Viacom Subsidiaries,
taken as a whole, excluding any changes or effects caused by
changes in general economic conditions or changes generally
affecting Viacom's industry.

         (b)  Each subsidiary of Viacom (a "Viacom Subsidiary")
that constitutes a Significant Subsidiary of Viacom within the
meaning of Rule 1-02 of Regulation S-X of the SEC is referred
to herein as a "Material Viacom Subsidiary".

         SECTION 4.02.  Certificate of Incorporation and
By-Laws.  Viacom has heretofore made available to Blockbuster












                               21



<PAGE>


a complete and correct copy of the Certificate of Incorporation
and the By-Laws or equivalent organizational documents, each as
amended to date, of Viacom and each Material Viacom Subsidiary.
Such Certificates of Incorporation, By-Laws and equivalent
organizational documents are in full force and effect.  Neither
Viacom nor any Material Viacom Subsidiary is in violation of
any provision of its Certificate of Incorporation, By-Laws or
equivalent organizational documents, except for such violations
that would not, individually or in the aggregate, have a Viacom
Material Adverse Effect.

         SECTION 4.03.  Capitalization.  The authorized capital
stock of Viacom consists of 100,000,000 shares of Viacom
Class A Common Stock, 150,000,000 shares of Viacom Class B
Common Stock and 100,000,000 shares of Preferred Stock, par
value $.01 per share ("Viacom Preferred Stock"), of which
24,000,000 shares have been designated Series A Preferred Stock
(the "Series A Preferred Stock") and 24,000,000 shares have
been designated Series B Preferred Stock (the "Series B
Preferred Stock").  As of November 30, 1993, (i) 53,449,125
shares of Viacom Class A Common Stock and 67,345,982 shares of
Viacom Class B Common Stock were issued and outstanding, all of
which were validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable, (ii)
no shares were held in the treasury of Viacom, (iii) no shares
were held by the Viacom Subsidiaries, and (iv) 224,610 shares
of Viacom Class A Common Stock and 3,760,297 shares of Viacom
Class B Common Stock were reserved for future issuance pursuant
to outstanding employee stock options or stock incentive rights
granted pursuant to Viacom's 1989 Long-Term Management
Incentive Plan, the Viacom Inc. Stock Option Plan for Outside
Directors and any other employee stock option plan or program.
Since December 1, 1993 to the date of this Agreement, stock
options were granted pursuant to which no shares of Viacom Class
A Common Stock and no shares of Viacom Class B Common Stock are
subject to issuance.  As of the date hereof, 24,000,000 shares
of Viacom Series A Preferred Stock and 24,000,000 shares of

of capital stock of each Material Viacom Subsidiary is duly
authorized, validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable and
each such share owned by Viacom or another Viacom Subsidiary is
free and clear of all security interests, liens, claims,
pledges, options, rights of first refusal, agreements,

and binding obligations of Viacom, enforceable against Viacom
in accordance with their terms, subject to the effect of any
applicable bankruptcy, reorganization, insolvency, moratorium
or similar laws affecting creditors' rights generally and
subject, as to enforceability, to the effect of general
principles of equity (regardless of whether such enforceability
is considered in a proceeding in equity or at law).

asset of Viacom or any Viacom Subsidiary is bound or affected,
except in the case of clauses (ii) and (iii), for any such
conflicts, violations, breaches, defaults or other occurrences
which would not prevent or delay consummation of the Merger in
any material respect, or otherwise prevent Viacom from
performing its obligations under this Agreement in any material
respect, and would not, individually or in the aggregate, have a
Viacom Material Adverse Effect.

         (b)  The execution and delivery of this Agreement by
Viacom do not, and the performance of this Agreement by Viacom
will not, require any consent, approval, authorization or
permit of, or filing with or notification to, any Governmental

notifications, would not prevent or delay consummation of the
Merger in any material respect, or otherwise prevent Viacom
from performing its obligations under this Agreement in any
material respect, and would not, individually or in the
aggregate, have a Viacom Material Adverse Effect.

         SECTION 4.06.  Compliance.  Neither Viacom nor any
Viacom Subsidiary is in conflict with, or in default or
violation of, (i) any law, rule, regulation, order, judgment or
decree applicable to Viacom or any Viacom Subsidiary or by
which any property or asset of Viacom or any Viacom Subsidiary
is bound or affected, or (ii) any note, bond, mortgage,
indenture, contract, agreement, lease, license, permit,
franchise or other instrument or obligation to which Viacom or

such conflicts, defaults or violations that would not,
individually or in the aggregate, have a Viacom Material
Adverse Effect.

         SECTION 4.07.  SEC Filings; Financial Statements.  (a)
Viacom has filed all forms, reports and documents required to
be filed by it with the SEC since December 31, 1990, and has
heretofore made available to Blockbuster, in the form filed
with the SEC (excluding any exhibits thereto), (i) its Annual
Reports on Form 10-K for the fiscal years ended December 31,
1990, 1991 and 1992, respectively, (ii) its Quarterly Reports
on Form 10-Q for the periods ended March 31, 1993, June 30,
1993 and September 30, 1993, (iii) all proxy statements
relating to Viacom's meetings of stockholders (whether annual
or special) held since January 1, 1991 and (iv) all other
forms, reports and other registration statements (other than
Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q not referred to in clause (ii)
above and preliminary materials) filed by Viacom with the SEC
since December 31, 1990 (the forms, reports and other documents
referred to in clauses (i), (ii), (iii), and (iv) above being
referred to herein, collectively, as the "Viacom SEC Reports").
The Viacom SEC Reports and any other forms, reports and other
documents filed by Viacom with the SEC after the date of this
Agreement (x) were or will be prepared in accordance with the
requirements of the Securities Act and the Exchange Act, as the
case may be, and the rules and regulations thereunder and (y)
did not at the time they were filed, or will not at the time
they are filed, contain any untrue statement of a material fact
or omit to state a material fact required to be stated therein
or necessary in order to make the statements made therein, in
the light of the circumstances under which they were made, not
misleading.  No Material Viacom Subsidiary (other than Viacom
International Inc., a Delaware corporation
("Viacom International")) is required to file any form, report
or other document with the SEC.

         (b)  Viacom International has filed all forms, reports
and documents required to be filed by it with the SEC since
December 31, 1992 and Viacom has heretofore made available to
Blockbuster, in the form filed with the SEC (excluding any
exhibits thereto), (i) Viacom International's Annual Report on
Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 1992, (ii) Viacom
International's Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the periods
ended March 31, 1993, June 30, 1993 and September 30, 1993,
(iii) all proxy statements relating to Viacom International's
meetings of stockholders (whether annual or special) held since
January 1, 1993 and (iv) all other forms, reports and other
registration statements (other than Quarterly Reports on Form
10-Q not referred to in clause










                               26

(ii) above and preliminary materials) filed by Viacom
International with the SEC since December 31, 1992 (the forms,
reports and other documents referred to in clauses (i), (ii),
(iii) and (iv) above being referred to herein, collectively, as
the "Viacom International SEC Reports").  The Viacom
International SEC Reports and any forms, reports and other
documents filed by Viacom International with the SEC after the
date of this Agreement (x) were or will be prepared in
accordance with the requirements of the Securities Act and the
Exchange Act, as the case may be, and the rules and regulations
thereunder and (y) did not at the time they were filed, or will
not at the time they are filed, contain any untrue statement of
a material fact or omit to state a material fact required to be
stated therein or necessary in order to make the statements
made therein, in the light of the circumstances under which
they were made, not misleading.

         (c)  Each of the consolidated financial statements
(including, in each case, any notes thereto) contained in the
Viacom SEC Reports and the Viacom International SEC Reports was
prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting
principles applied on a consistent basis throughout the periods
indicated (except as may be indicated in the notes thereto) and
each fairly presented the consolidated financial position,
results of operations and cash flows of Viacom and the
consolidated Viacom Subsidiaries or Viacom International or the
subsidiaries of Viacom International, as the case may be, as at
the respective dates thereof and for the respective periods
indicated therein (subject, in the case of unaudited
statements, to normal and recurring year-end adjustments which
were not and are not expected, individually or in the
aggregate, to be material in amount).

         (d)  Except as and to the extent set forth in the
Viacom SEC Reports filed with the SEC prior to the date of this
Agreement, Viacom and the Viacom Subsidiaries do not have any
liability or obligation of any nature (whether accrued,
absolute, contingent or otherwise) other than liabilities and
obligations which would not, individually or in the aggregate,
have a Viacom Material Adverse Effect.

         SECTION 4.08.  Absence of Certain Changes or Events.
Since December 31, 1992, except as contemplated by this
Agreement, as set forth in Section 4.08 of the Disclosure
Schedule or disclosed in any Viacom SEC Report filed since
December 31, 1992 and prior to the date of this Agreement,
Viacom and the Viacom Subsidiaries have conducted their
businesses only in the ordinary course and in a manner
consistent with past practice and, since December 31, 1992











                               27



<PAGE>


there has not been (i) any Viacom Material Adverse Effect, (ii)
any damage, destruction or loss (whether or not covered by
insurance) with respect to any property or asset of Viacom or
any Viacom Subsidiary and having, individually or in the
aggregate, a Viacom Material Adverse Effect, (iii) any change
by Viacom in its accounting methods, principles or practices,
(iv) any declaration, setting aside or payment of any dividend
or distribution in respect of any capital stock of Viacom or
any Viacom Subsidiary or any redemption, purchase or other
acquisition of any of their respective securities other than
dividends by a Viacom Subsidiary to Viacom or (v) other than as
set forth in Section 4.03 and pursuant to the plans, programs
or arrangements referred to in Section 4.10, other than in the
ordinary course of business consistent with past practice, any
increase in or establishment of any bonus, insurance,
severance, deferred compensation, pension, retirement, profit
sharing, stock option (including, without limitation, the
granting of stock options, stock appreciation rights,
performance awards, or restricted stock awards), stock purchase
or other employee benefit plan, or any other increase in the
compensation payable or to become payable to any officers or
key employees of Viacom or any Viacom Subsidiary, except for
the establishment of the Viacom Inc. Stock Option Plan for
Outside Directors and the grant of options to purchase an
aggregate of 25,000 shares thereunder.

         SECTION 4.09.  Absence of Litigation.  Except as
disclosed in the Viacom SEC Reports filed with the SEC prior to
the date of this Agreement, there is no claim, action,
proceeding or investigation pending or, to the best knowledge
of Viacom, threatened against Viacom or any Viacom Subsidiary,
or any property or asset of Viacom or any Viacom Subsidiary,
before any court, arbitrator or administrative, governmental or
regulatory authority or body, domestic or foreign, which,
individually or in the aggregate, would have a Viacom Material
Adverse Effect.  Except as disclosed in the Viacom SEC Reports
filed with the SEC prior to the date of this Agreement, neither
Viacom nor any Viacom Subsidiary nor any property or asset of
Viacom or any Viacom Subsidiary is subject to any order, writ,
judgment, injunction, decree, determination or award which
would have, individually or in the aggregate, a Viacom Material
Adverse Effect.

         SECTION 4.10.  Employee Benefit Plans.  With respect
to all the employee benefit plans, programs and arrangements
maintained or contributed to by Viacom or any Viacom Subsidiary
for the benefit of any current or former employee, officer or
director of Viacom or any Viacom Subsidiary (the "Viacom
Plans"), except as set forth in Section 4.10 of the








                               28



<PAGE>


Viacom Disclosure Schedule or the Viacom SEC Reports and except
as would not, individually or in the aggregate, have a Viacom
Material Adverse Effect:  (i) none of the Viacom Plans is a
multiemployer plan within the meaning of ERISA; (ii) none of
the Viacom Plans promises or provides retiree medical or life
insurance benefits to any person; (iii) each Viacom Plan
intended to be qualified under Section 401(a) of the Code has
received a favorable determination letter from the IRS that it
is so qualified and nothing has occurred since the date of such
letter that could reasonably be expected to affect the
qualified status of such Viacom Plan; (iv) each Viacom Plan has
been operated in all material respects in accordance with its
terms and the requirements of applicable law; (v) neither
Viacom nor any Viacom Subsidiary has incurred any direct or
indirect liability under, arising out of or by operation of
Title IV of ERISA in connection with the termination of, or
withdrawal from, any Viacom Plan or other retirement plan or
arrangement, and no fact or event exists that could reasonably
be expected to give rise to any such liability; and (vi) Viacom
and the Viacom Subsidiaries have not incurred any liability
under, and have complied in all respects with, WARN, and no
fact or event exists that could give rise to liability under
such act.  Except as set forth in Section 4.10 of the Viacom
Disclosure Schedule or the Viacom SEC Reports, the aggregate
accumulated benefit obligations of each Viacom Plan subject to
Title IV of ERISA (as of the date of the most recent actuarial
valuation prepared for such Viacom Plan) do not exceed the fair
market value of the assets of such Viacom Plan (as of the date
of such valuation).

         SECTION 4.11.  Trademarks, Patents and Copyrights.
Viacom and the Viacom Subsidiaries own, or possess adequate
licenses or other valid rights to use, all material patents,
patent rights, trademarks, trademark rights, trade names, trade
name rights, copyrights, service marks, service mark rights,
trade secrets, applications to register, and registrations for,
the foregoing trademarks, service marks, know-how and other
proprietary rights and information used in connection with the
business of Viacom and the Viacom Subsidiaries as currently
conducted, and no assertion or claim has been made in writing
challenging the validity of any of the foregoing which,
individually or in the aggregate, would have a Viacom Material
Adverse Effect.  To the best knowledge of Viacom, the conduct
of the business of Viacom and the Viacom Subsidiaries as
currently conducted does not conflict in any way with any
patent, patent right, license, trademark, trademark right,
trade name, trade name right, service mark or copyright of any
third party that,











                               29


<PAGE>



individually or in the aggregate, would have a Viacom Material
Adverse Effect.

         SECTION 4.12.  Taxes.  Viacom and the Viacom
Subsidiaries have timely filed all federal, state, local and
foreign tax returns and reports required to be filed by them
through the date hereof and shall timely file all returns and
reports required on or before the Effective Time, except for
such returns and reports the failure of which to file timely
would not, individually or in the aggregate, have a Viacom
Material Adverse Effect.  Such reports and returns are and will
be true, correct and complete, except for such failures to be
true, correct and complete as would not, individually or in the
aggregate, have a Viacom Material Adverse Effect.  Viacom and
the Viacom Subsidiaries have paid and discharged all federal,
state, local and foreign taxes due from them, other than such
taxes that are being contested in good faith by appropriate
proceedings and are adequately reserved as shown in the audited
consolidated balance sheet of Viacom dated December 31, 1992
(the "Viacom 1992 Balance Sheet") and its most recent quarterly
financial statements, except for such failures to so pay and
discharge which would not, individually or in the aggregate,
have a Viacom Material Adverse Effect.  Neither the IRS nor any
other taxing authority or agency, domestic or foreign, is now
asserting or, to the best knowledge of Viacom, threatening to
assert against Viacom or any Viacom Subsidiary any deficiency
or material claim for additional taxes or interest thereon or
penalties in connection therewith which, if such deficiencies
or claims were finally resolved against Viacom and the Viacom
Subsidiaries, would, individually or in the aggregate, have a
Viacom Material Adverse Effect.  The accruals and reserves for
taxes (including interest and penalties, if any, thereon)
reflected in the Viacom 1992 Balance Sheet and the most recent
quarterly financial statements are adequate in accordance with
generally accepted accounting principles, except where the
failure to be adequate would not have a Viacom Material Adverse
Effect.  Viacom and the Viacom Subsidiaries have withheld or
collected and paid over to the appropriate governmental
authorities or are properly holding for such payment all taxes
required by law to be withheld or collected, except for such
failures to have so withheld or collected and paid over or to
be so holding for payment which would not, individually or in
the aggregate, have a Viacom Material Adverse Effect.  There
are no material liens for taxes upon the assets of Viacom or
the Viacom Subsidiaries, other than liens for current taxes not
yet due and payable and liens for taxes that are being
contested in good faith by appropriate proceedings.  Neither
Viacom nor any Viacom Subsidiary has agreed to or is required
to make any











                               30



<PAGE>


adjustment under Section 481(a) of the Code.  Neither Viacom
nor any Viacom Subsidiary has made an election under Section
341(f) of the Code.  For purposes of this Section 4.12, where a
determination of whether a failure by Viacom or a Viacom
Subsidiary to comply with the representations herein has a
Viacom Material Adverse Effect is necessary, such determination
shall be made on an aggregate basis with all other failures
within this Section 4.12.

         SECTION 4.13.  Opinion of Financial Advisor.  Viacom
has received the opinion of Smith Barney Shearson Inc. ("Smith
Barney"), dated January 6, 1994, to the effect that, as of such
date, the Merger is fair to the stockholders of Viacom from a
financial point of view, a copy of which opinion has been
delivered to Blockbuster.

         SECTION 4.14.  Vote Required.  The affirmative vote of
the holders of a majority of the outstanding shares of Viacom
Class A Common Stock is the only vote of the holders of any
class or series of Viacom capital stock necessary to approve
the Viacom Vote Matter.

         SECTION 4.15.  Brokers.  No broker, finder or
investment banker (other than Smith Barney) is entitled to any
brokerage, finder's or other fee or commission in connection
with the transactions contemplated herein based upon
arrangements made by or on behalf of Viacom.  Viacom has
heretofore furnished to Blockbuster a complete and correct copy
of all agreements between Viacom and Smith Barney pursuant to
which such firm would be entitled to any payment relating to
the transactions contemplated herein.


                           ARTICLE V

            CONDUCT OF BUSINESSES PENDING THE MERGER

         SECTION 5.01.  Conduct of Respective Businesses by
Blockbuster and Viacom Pending the Merger.  Each of Blockbuster
and Viacom covenants and agrees that, between the date of this
Agreement and the Effective Time, unless the other party shall
have consented in writing (such consent not to be unreasonably
withheld), the businesses of each of Blockbuster and Viacom and
their respective subsidiaries shall, in all material respects,
be conducted in, and each of Blockbuster and Viacom and their
respective subsidiaries shall not take any material action
except in, the ordinary course of business, consistent with
past practice; and each of Blockbuster and Viacom shall use its
reasonable best efforts to preserve substantially intact its

to the proposed acquisition by Viacom of Paramount
Communications Inc., a Delaware corporation ("Paramount"),
(iii) for any actions taken by Blockbuster in its capacity as
the controlling stockholder of Spelling that are necessary due
to the applicable fiduciary duties to Spelling and the other
stockholders of Spelling, as determined by Blockbuster in good
faith after consultation with and based upon the advice of
independent legal counsel (who may be Blockbuster's regularly
engaged independent legal counsel) or (iv) as set forth on
Section 5.01 of the Blockbuster Disclosure Schedule or Section
5.01 of the Viacom Disclosure Schedule, neither Viacom nor
Blockbuster nor any of their respective subsidiaries shall,
between the date of this Agreement and the Effective Time,

    or authorize the issuance, sale, pledge, disposition, grant

    the grant of options in the ordinary course of business
    consistent with past practice to employees who are not
    executive officers of Blockbuster or Viacom or the grant of
    options previously disclosed by Blockbuster to Viacom prior
    to the date of this Agreement), warrants, convertible
    securities or other rights of any kind to acquire any shares
    of such capital stock, or any other ownership interest

    Agreement or (D) any acquisition by Blockbuster permitted

    do not exceed $10,000,000 or which, in the aggregate, do
    not exceed $25,000,000;

    dividend payable on or about April 1, 1994 in an amount not
    to exceed $.025 per share of Blockbuster Common Stock, (ii)

agents, properties, offices, plants and other facilities, books
and records, and shall furnish such Respective Representatives
with all financial, operating and other data and information as

         (c)  No investigation pursuant to this Section 6.01
shall affect any representation or warranty in this Agreement
of any party hereto or any condition to the obligations of the

Indemnification and Insurance.  (a)  The Certificate of
Incorporation and By-Laws of the Surviving Corporation shall
contain the provisions with respect to indemnification set
forth in the Certificate of Incorporation and By-Laws of Viacom
on the date of this Agreement, which provisions shall not be
amended, repealed or otherwise modified for a period of six
years after the Effective Time in any manner that would
adversely affect the rights thereunder of individuals who at
any time prior to the Effective Time were directors or officers
of Blockbuster in respect of actions or omissions occurring at
or prior to the Effective Time (including, without limitation,
the transactions contemplated by this Agreement), unless such
modification is required by law.

         (b)  From and after the Effective Time, the Surviving

Corporation (which approval shall not unreasonably be
withheld), or otherwise in connection with any claim, action,
suit, proceeding or investigation (a "Claim"), based in whole
or in part on the fact that such person is or was a director or
officer of Blockbuster and arising out of actions or omissions
occurring at or prior to the Effective Time (including, without

<PAGE>


Delaware Law, upon receipt from the Indemnified Party to whom
expenses are advanced of the undertaking to repay such advances
contemplated by Section 145(e) of Delaware Law).

Indemnified Party wishing to claim indemnification under this
Section 6.02 upon learning of any such Claim shall notify the
Surviving Corporation (although the failure so to notify the
Surviving Corporation shall not relieve the Surviving
Corporation from any liability which the Surviving Corporation

failure materially prejudices the Surviving Corporation's
position with respect to such claim), and shall deliver to the
Surviving Corporation the undertaking contemplated by Section
145(e) of Delaware Law.  The Indemnified Parties as a group may
retain no more than one law firm (in addition to local counsel)

more Indemnified Parties, in which event such additional
counsel as may be required may be retained by the Indemnified
Parties.

Time, the Surviving Corporation shall cause to be maintained in
effect the current policies of directors' and officers'
liability insurance maintained by Blockbuster (provided that
the Surviving Corporation may substitute therefor policies of
at least the same coverage and amounts containing terms and
conditions which are no less advantageous to former officers
and directors of Blockbuster) with respect to claims arising
from facts or events which occurred before the Effective Time;
provided, however, that in no event shall the Surviving
Corporation be required to expend pursuant to this Section











                               36

as to form with the requirements of the Exchange Act and the
rules and regulations thereunder.

         (e)  Blockbuster represents and warrants to Viacom

such stockholder in the Merger pursuant to Rule 145(d)(1) in
the three month period immediately following the Effective
Time, Viacom agrees, if requested by such stockholder, to
either, at Viacom's option, (i) take such actions reasonably
necessary to register the Stockholder Shares for resale
pursuant to the Registration Statement or (ii) promptly after

eligible to sell all of the Stockholder Shares then owned by
the Stockholder pursuant to Rule 145(d)(1) in the three month
period immediately following the termination of the
effectiveness of the applicable registration statement.
Viacom's obligations contained in this paragraph (b) shall
terminate on the second anniversary of the Effective Time.

similar taxes which become payable in connection with the

         SECTION 6.15.  Assumption of Debt and Leases.  With
respect to debt issued by Blockbuster under indentures
qualified under the Trust Indenture Act of 1939 ("Indentures"),
Viacom shall execute and deliver to the trustees, under the
respective Indentures, Supplemental Indentures, in form
satisfactory to the respective trustees, expressly assuming the
obligations of Blockbuster with respect to the due and punctual
payment of the principal of (and premium, if any) and interest,
if any, on all debt securities issued by Blockbuster under the
respective Indentures and the due and punctual performance of
all the terms, covenants and conditions of the respective
Indentures to be kept or performed by Blockbuster, and shall
deliver such Supplemental Indentures to the respective trustees
under the Indenture.  Viacom shall similarly deliver
instruments of assumption to the holders of any debt
obligations of, holders of warrants of, and the lessors of any
real property to, Blockbuster, which debt obligations, warrants
or leases expressly require such assumption in order for the
Merger to comply with the debt instrument, warrant or lease.

         SECTION 6.16.  Transactions with Significant
Stockholder After the Effective Time.  From and after the
Effective Time and until the tenth anniversary of the Effective
Time, the Surviving Corporation shall not enter into any
agreement with any stockholder (the "Significant Stockholder")
who beneficially owns more than 35% of the then outstanding
securities entitled to vote at a meeting of the stockholders of
Viacom that would constitute a Rule 13e-3 (as such rule is in
effect today) transaction under the Exchange Act with respect
to any class of common stock of Viacom (any such transaction
being a "Going Private Transaction"), unless Viacom provides in
any agreement pursuant to which such Going Private Transaction
shall be effected that, as a condition to the consummation of
such Going Private Transaction, (a) the holders of a majority
of the shares not beneficially owned by the Significant
Stockholder that are voted and present (whether in person or by
proxy) at the meeting of stockholders called to vote on such
Going Private Transaction shall have voted in favor thereof and
(b) a special committee (the "Special Committee") of the Board
of Directors of Viacom comprised solely of the independent
directors of Viacom shall have (i) approved the terms and
conditions of the Going Private Transaction and shall have
recommended that the stockholders vote in favor thereof and
(ii) received from its financial advisor a written opinion
addressed to the Special Committee, for inclusion in the proxy
statement to be delivered to the stockholders, and dated the
date thereof, substantially to the effect that the
consideration to be received by the stockholders (other than
the majority











                               43


<PAGE>



stockholder) in the Going Private Transaction is fair to them
from a financial point of view.  Notwithstanding anything to
the contrary in this Section 6.16, the restrictions contained
in this Section 6.16 shall not apply to any Significant
Stockholder if there exists another stockholder who
beneficially owns a greater percentage of outstanding
securities entitled to vote at the meeting than the Significant
Stockholder.

    only as of a particular date shall remain true and correct

    correct as of the Effective Time, as though made on and as

    permitted by this Agreement and (ii) that those
    representations and warranties which address matters only
    as of a particular date shall remain true and correct as of

    and correct that would not, individually or in the
    aggregate, have a Viacom Material Adverse Effect.

    Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer of Viacom to
    such effect.

         (b)  Agreements and Covenants.  Viacom shall have

    shall be in form and substance satisfactory to each of
    Shearman & Sterling and Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher &
    Flom, and each such representation letter shall be dated on

         SECTION 8.01.  Termination.  This Agreement may be
terminated at any time prior to the Effective Time, whether
before or after approval of this Agreement and the Merger by
the stockholders of Blockbuster or the approval by the
stockholders of Viacom of the issuance of the shares of Viacom
Common Stock in accordance with Article II:

         (a)  by mutual consent of Blockbuster and Viacom;

         (b)  by Viacom, upon a breach of any representation,
    warranty, covenant or agreement on the part of Blockbuster
    set forth in this Agreement, or if any representation or
    warranty of Blockbuster shall have become untrue, in either
    case such that the conditions set forth in Section 7.02(a)
    or Section 7.02(b), as the case may be, would be incapable
    of being satisfied by September 30, 1994 (or as otherwise
    extended); provided











                               47


<PAGE>



    that, in any case, a wilful breach shall be deemed to cause
    such conditions to be incapable of being satisfied for
    purposes of this Section 8.01(b);

         (c)  by Blockbuster, upon a breach of any
    representation, warranty, covenant or agreement on the part

    untrue, in either case such that the conditions set forth
    in Section 7.03(a) or Section 7.03(b), as the case may be,
    would be incapable of being satisfied by September 30, 1994
    (or as otherwise extended); provided that, in any case, a
    wilful breach shall be deemed to cause such conditions to
    be incapable of being satisfied for purposes of this
    Section 8.01(c);

         (d)  by either Viacom or Blockbuster, if any permanent
    injunction or action by any Governmental Entity preventing
    the consummation of the Merger shall have become final and
    nonappealable;

         (e)  by either Viacom or Blockbuster, if the Merger
    shall not have been consummated before September 30, 1994;
    provided, however, that this Agreement may be extended by
    written notice of either Viacom or Blockbuster to a date
    not later than November 30, 1994, if the Merger shall not
    have been consummated as a direct result of Viacom or
    Blockbuster having failed, by September 30, 1994, to
    receive all required regulatory approvals or consents with
    respect to the Merger;

         (f)  by either Viacom or Blockbuster, if this
    Agreement and the Merger shall fail to receive the
    requisite vote for approval and adoption by the
    stockholders of Blockbuster or, with respect to Blockbuster
    only, Viacom at the Stockholders' Meetings;

         (g)  by Viacom, if (i) the Board of Directors of
    Blockbuster shall withdraw, modify or change its
    recommendation of this Agreement or the Merger in a manner
    adverse to Viacom or shall have resolved to do any of the
    foregoing; (ii) the Board of Directors of Blockbuster shall
    have recommended to the shareholders of Blockbuster a
    Competing Transaction (as defined below); (iii) a tender
    offer or exchange offer for 25% or more of the outstanding
    shares of capital stock of Blockbuster is commenced, and
    the Board of Directors of Blockbuster recommends that the
    stockholders of Blockbuster tender their shares in such
    tender or exchange offer; or (iv) any person shall have
    acquired beneficial ownership










                               48


<PAGE>



    or the right to acquire beneficial ownership of or any
    "group" (as such term is defined under Section 13(d) of the
    Exchange Act and the rules and regulations promulgated
    thereunder) shall have been formed which beneficially owns,
    or has the right to acquire beneficial ownership of, more
    than 25% of the then outstanding shares of capital stock of
    Blockbuster; and

         (h)  by Blockbuster, if the Board of Directors of
    Blockbuster (x) fails to make or withdraws or modifies its
    recommendation referred to in Section 6.05(a) if there
    exists at such time a tender offer or exchange offer or a
    proposal by a third party to acquire Blockbuster pursuant
    to a merger, consolidation, share exchange, business
    combination, tender or exchange offer or other similar
    transaction or (y) recommends to Blockbuster's stockholders
    approval or acceptance of any of the foregoing, in each
    case only if the Board of Directors of Blockbuster, after
    consultation with and based upon the advice of independent
    legal counsel (who may be such party's regularly engaged
    independent legal counsel), determines in good faith that
    such action is necessary for the Board of Directors of
    Blockbuster to comply with its fiduciary duties to
    stockholders under applicable law.

         The right of any party hereto to terminate this
Agreement pursuant to this Section 8.01 shall remain operative
and in full force and effect regardless of any investigation
made by or on behalf of any party hereto, any person
controlling any such party or any of their respective officers
or directors, whether prior to or after the execution of this
Agreement.  For purposes of this Agreement, "Competing
Transaction" shall mean any of the following (other than the
transactions contemplated under the Agreement) involving a
party hereto or any of its subsidiaries:  (i) any merger,
consolidation, share exchange, business combination, or other
similar transaction; (ii) any sale, lease, exchange, mortgage,
pledge, transfer or other disposition of 25% or more of the
assets of such party and its subsidiaries, taken as a whole, in
a single transaction or series of transactions; (iii) any
tender offer or exchange offer for 25% or more of the
outstanding shares of capital stock of such party or the filing
of a registration statement under the Securities Act in
connection therewith; (iv) any person having acquired
beneficial ownership or the right to acquire beneficial
ownership of, or any "group" (as such term is defined under
Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations
promulgated thereunder) having been formed which beneficially
owns or has the right to acquire











                               49



<PAGE>


beneficial ownership of, 25% or more of the then outstanding
shares of capital stock of such party; or (v) any public
announcement of a proposal, plan or intention to do any of the
foregoing or any agreement to engage in any of the foregoing.

         SECTION 8.02.  Effect of Termination.  Except as
provided in Section 8.05 or Section 9.01, in the event of the
termination of this Agreement pursuant to Section 8.01, this
Agreement shall forthwith become void, there shall be no
liability on the part of Blockbuster or Viacom or any of their
respective officers or directors to the other and all rights
and obligations of any party hereto shall cease; provided,
however, that nothing herein shall relieve any party from
liability for the wilful breach of any of its representations,
warranties, covenants or agreements set forth in this
Agreement.

         SECTION 8.03.  Amendment.  This Agreement may be
amended by the parties hereto by action taken by or on behalf
of their respective Boards of Directors at any time prior to
the Effective Time; provided, however, that, after approval of
the Merger by the stockholders of Blockbuster or Viacom, no
amendment, which under applicable law may not be made without
the approval of the stockholders of Blockbuster or Viacom, may
be made without such approval.  This Agreement may not be
amended except by an instrument in writing signed by the
parties hereto.

         SECTION 8.04.  Waiver.  At any time prior to the
Effective Time, either party hereto may (a) extend the time for
the performance of any of the obligations or other acts of the
other party hereto, (b) waive any inaccuracies in the
representations and warranties of the other party contained
herein or in any document delivered pursuant hereto and
(c) waive compliance by the other party with any of the
agreements or conditions contained herein.  Any such extension
or waiver shall be valid only if set forth in an instrument in
writing signed by the party or parties to be bound thereby.

         SECTION 8.05.  Fees, Expenses and Other Payments.  (a)
Subject to paragraph (b) of this Section 8.05, all
out-of-pocket costs and expenses, including, without
limitation, fees and disbursements of counsel, financial
advisors and accountants, incurred by the parties hereto shall
be borne solely and entirely by the party which has incurred
such costs and expenses (with respect to such party, its
"Expenses"); provided, however, that all costs and expenses
related to printing, filing and mailing the












                               50




<PAGE>

Registration Statement and the Proxy Statement and all SEC and
other regulatory filing fees incurred in connection with the
Registration Statement and the Proxy Statement shall be borne
equally by Blockbuster and Viacom.

         (b)  Blockbuster agrees that if this Agreement shall
be terminated pursuant to (i) Section 8.01(b); (ii)
Section 8.01(f) because this Agreement and the Merger shall
fail to receive the requisite vote for approval and adoption by
the stockholders of Blockbuster at the meeting of stockholders
of Blockbuster called to vote thereon and at the time of such
meeting there shall exist a Competing Transaction; or (iii)
Section 8.01(g)(i), (ii) or (iii) or Section 8.01(h) and at the
time of such termination there shall exist a Competing
Transaction and the terms of such Competing Transaction provide
that Blockbuster's stockholders shall receive consideration
having a higher per share value than the consideration per
share payable to Blockbuster's stockholders under this
Agreement then in any such event Blockbuster shall pay to
Viacom an amount equal to Viacom's Expenses; provided, however,
that in no event shall Blockbuster be obligated to pay any of
Viacom's Expenses exceeding $50,000,000.  For purposes of this
Section 8.05(b), the per share value of the consideration
payable to the Blockbuster stockholders under this Agreement
and under the terms of the Competing Transaction shall be the
blended weighted average price per share determined as of the
close of business on the business day prior to the date this
Agreement is terminated.

         (c)  Any payment required to be made pursuant to
Section 8.05(b) shall be made as promptly as practicable but
not later than five business days after the delivery by Viacom
to Blockbuster of a statement setting forth any of Viacom's
Expenses in reasonable detail and shall be made by wire
transfer of immediately available funds to an account
designated by Viacom.

                             options.

Maturity:                    First anniversary of Merger.

Trading/Listing:             VCRs will be certificated and
                             trade separately from Viacom
                             Common Shares.  Viacom will use
                             best efforts to list VCRs on AMEX
                             or such other exchange on which
                             its shares are then listed.

Payout:                      In the ninety trading day period
                             immediately preceding Maturity
                             (the "Valuation Period"), a value
                             for Viacom B Common Shares ("B
                             Share Value") will be determined.
                             The B Share Value will equal the
                             average closing price on the AMEX
                             (or such other exchange on which
                             such shares are then listed) for a
                             Viacom B Common Share during any
                             30 consecutive trading days in the
                             Valuation Period which yield the
                             highest such average closing
                             price.

                             Subject to the dilution protection
                             mentioned below, each VCR will
                             represent a fraction of one Viacom
                             B Common Share, such fraction to
                             be determined based upon the B
                             Share Value, as set forth below:

Limitation on Payout:        Notwithstanding the table above, if at
                             any time during the period from the
                             Merger to Maturity the average closing
                             price for a Viacom B Common Share on
                             AMEX (or such other exchange on which
                             such shares are then listed) for any 30
                             consecutive trading days is:

                             (a) above $40, then the maximum payout,
                             if any, for each VCR will equal .05929
                             of one Viacom B Common Share; or

                             (b) above $52, then the VCRs will have
                             no value and will automatically
                             terminate.

                    FORM OF AFFILIATE LETTER





Viacom Inc.
1515 Broadway
New York, New York 10036

Gentlemen:

         I have been advised that as of the date of this letter
I may be deemed to be an "affiliate" of Blockbuster
Entertainment Corporation, a Delaware corporation (the
"Company"), as the term "affiliate" is defined for purposes of
paragraphs (c) and (d) of Rule 145 of the rules and regulations
(the "Rules and Regulations") of the Securities and Exchange
Commission (the "Commission") under the Securities Act of 1933,
as amended (the "Act").  Pursuant to the terms of the Agreement
and Plan of Merger dated as of January 7, 1994 (the
"Agreement"), between Viacom Inc., a Delaware corporation
("Viacom"), and the Company, the Company will be merged with
and into Viacom (the "Merger").

         As a result of the Merger, I may receive (A) shares of
(i) Class A Common Stock, par value $.01 per share, of Viacom
(the "Viacom Class A Common Stock") and (ii) Class B Common
Stock, par value $.01 per share, of Viacom (the "Viacom Class B
Common Stock"; and, together with the Viacom Class A Common
Stock, the "Viacom Common Stock") and (B) VCRs (as defined in
the Agreement) (the VCRs, together with the Viacom Common
Stock, being the "Viacom Securities").  I would receive such
Viacom Securities in exchange for, respectively, shares (or
options for shares) owned by me of common stock, par value $.10
per share, of the Company (the "Company Common Stock").

         I represent, warrant and covenant to Viacom that in
the event I receive any Viacom Securities as a result of the
Merger:

         A.  I shall not make any sale, transfer or other
    disposition of the Viacom Securities in violation of the
    Act or the Rules and Regulations.









                               60

                               2


         B.  I have carefully read this letter and the
    Agreement and discussed the requirements of such documents
    and other applicable limitations upon my ability to sell,
    transfer or otherwise dispose of Viacom Common Stock to the
    extent I felt necessary, with my counsel or counsel for the
    Company.

         C.  I have been advised that the issuance of Viacom
    Securities to me pursuant to the Merger has been registered
    with the Commission under the Act on a Registration
    Statement Form S-4.  However, I have also been advised
    that, because at the time the Merger is submitted for a
    vote of the stockholders of the Company, (a) I may be
    deemed to be an affiliate of the Company and (b) the
    distribution by me of the Viacom Securities has not been
    registered under the Act, I may not sell, transfer or
    otherwise dispose of Viacom Securities issued to me in the
    Merger unless (i) such sale, transfer or other disposition
    is made in conformity with the volume and other limitations
    of Rule 145 promulgated by the Commission under the Act,
    (ii) such sale, transfer or other disposition has been
    registered under the Act or (iii) in the opinion of counsel
    reasonably acceptable to Viacom, such sale, transfer or
    other disposition is otherwise exempt from registration
    under the Act.

         D.  I understand that Viacom is under no obligation to
    register the sale, transfer or other disposition of the
    Viacom Securities by me or on my behalf under the Act or to
    take any other action necessary in order to make compliance
    with an exemption from such registration available solely
    as a result of the Merger.

         E.  I also understand that there will be placed on the
    certificates for the Viacom Securities issued to me, or any
    substitutions therefor, a legend stating in substance:

         "THE [SHARES] [RIGHTS] REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE
         WERE ISSUED IN A TRANSACTION TO WHICH RULE 145
         PROMULGATED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933 APPLIES.
         THE [SHARES] [RIGHTS] REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE
         MAY ONLY BE TRANSFERRED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE TERMS
         OF AN AGREEMENT

    DATED           , 1994 BETWEEN THE REGISTERED HOLDER HEREOF
    AND VIACOM INC., A COPY OF WHICH AGREEMENT IS ON FILE AT
    THE PRINCIPAL OFFICES OF VIACOM INC."

         F.  I also understand that unless a sale or transfer
    is made in conformity with the provisions of Rule 145, or
    pursuant to a registration statement, Viacom reserves the
    right to put the following legend on the certificates
    issued to my transferee:

         "THE [SHARES] [RIGHTS] REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE
         HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF
         1933 AND WERE ACQUIRED FROM A PERSON WHO RECEIVED SUCH
         SHARES IN A TRANSACTIONTO WHICH RULE 145 PROMULGATED
         UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933 APPLIES.  THE
         [SHARES] [RIGHTS] HAVE BEEN ACQUIRED BY THE HOLDER NOT
         WITH A VIEW TO, OR FOR RESALE IN CONNECTION WITH, ANY
         DISTRIBUTION THEREOF WITHIN THE MEANING OF THE
         SECURITIES ACT OF 1933 AND MAY NOT BE SOLD, PLEDGED OR
         OTHERWISE TRANSFERRED EXCEPT IN ACCORDANCE WITH AN
         EXEMPTION FROM THE REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS OF THE
         SECURITIES ACT OF 1933."

         It is understood and agreed that the legends set forth
in paragraphs E and F above shall be removed by delivery of
substitute certificates without such legend if the undersigned
shall have delivered to Viacom a copy of a letter from the
staff of the Commission, or an opinion of counsel reasonably
satisfactory to Viacom, in form and substance reasonably
satisfactory to Viacom, to the effect that such legend is not
required for purposes of the Act.

         Execution of this letter should not be considered an
admission on my part that I am an "affiliate" of the Company as
described in the first paragraph of this letter, nor as a
waiver of any rights I may have to object to any claim that I
am such an affiliate on or after the date of this letter.


                                    Very truly yours,




                                    Name:

Stockholder, enforceable against such Stockholder in accordance
with its terms, subject to the effect of any applicable
bankruptcy, reorganization, insolvency, moratorium or similar
laws affecting creditors' rights generally and subject, as to
enforceability, to the effect of general principles of equity
(regardless of whether such enforceability is considered in a
proceeding in equity or at law).

Consents.  (a)  The execution and delivery of this Agreement by
such Stockholder do not, and the performance of this Agreement

entity), (ii) conflict with or violate any law, rule,
regulation, order, judgment or decree applicable to such

would become a default) under, or give to others any rights of
termination, amendment, acceleration or cancellation of, or
result in the creation of a lien or encumbrance on any of the
property or assets of such Stockholder or (if such Stockholder

permit, franchise or other instrument or obligation to which
such Stockholder is a party or by which such Stockholder or any
of its properties is bound or affected, except for any such
breaches, defaults or other occurrences that would not cause or
create a material risk of non-performance or delayed
performance by such Stockholder of its obligations under this
Agreement.

         (b)  The execution and delivery of this Agreement by
such Stockholder do not, and the performance of this Agreement
by such Stockholder will not, require any consent, approval,

regulations thereunder (the "Exchange Act"), and the HSR Act
and (ii) where the failure to obtain such consents, approvals,
authorizations or permits, or to make such filings or
notifications, would not prevent or delay the performance by
such Stockholder of its obligations under this Agreement.

         SECTION 2.03.  Title to Shares.  At the Closing such
Stockholder will deliver good and valid title to its Shares
free and clear of any pledge, lien, security interest, charge,

Viacom do not, and the performance of this Agreement by Viacom
will not, (i) conflict with or violate the Certificate of

Viacom do not, and the performance of this Agreement by Viacom

Merger Agreement, during such periods as the Options are
exercisable), as its true and lawful attorney and proxy, for
and in its name, place and stead, to vote each of such Shares
as its proxy, at every annual, special or adjourned meeting of
the stockholders of Blockbuster (including the right to sign

document relating to Blockbuster that the law of the State of
Delaware may permit or require) (i) in favor of the adoption of
the Merger Agreement and approval of the Merger and the other
transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement, (ii) against
any proposal for any recapitalization, merger, sale of assets
or other business combination between Blockbuster and any
person or entity (other than the Merger) or any other action or
agreement that would result in a breach of any covenant,
representation or warranty or any other obligation or agreement
of Blockbuster under the Merger Agreement or which could result
in any of the conditions to Blockbuster's




                                 7

         PROXY AGREEMENT, dated as of January 7, 1994, among
VIACOM INC., a Delaware corporation ("Viacom"), and each other

         WHEREAS, as of the date hereof each Stockholder owns
(either beneficially or of record) the number of shares of
common stock, par value $0.10 per share ("Blockbuster Common
Stock"), of Blockbuster Entertainment Corporation, a Delaware
corporation ("Blockbuster"), set forth opposite such
Stockholder's name on Exhibit A hereto (all such shares owned
by the Stockholders and any shares hereafter acquired by the
Stockholders prior to the termination of this Agreement being
referred to herein as the "Shares");

         WHEREAS, Viacom and Blockbuster propose to enter into
an Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of the date hereof
(as the same may be amended from time to time, the "Merger
Agreement"), which provides, upon the terms and subject to the
conditions thereof, for the merger of Blockbuster with and into
Viacom (the "Merger"); and

         WHEREAS, as a condition to the willingness of Viacom
to enter into the Merger Agreement, Viacom has requested that
each Stockholder agree, and, in order to induce Viacom to enter
into the Merger
 Agreement, each Stockholder has agreed,
severally and not jointly, to grant Viacom proxies to vote such
Stockholder's Shares;

         NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises and
of the mutual agreements and covenants set forth herein and in
the Merger Agreement, the parties hereto agree as follows:

         Each Stockholder, severally and not jointly, hereby
represents and warrants to Viacom as follows:

<PAGE>

         SECTION 1.01.  Due Organization, etc.  Such
Stockholder (if it is a corporation, partnership or other legal
entity) is duly organized and validly existing under the laws
of the jurisdiction of its incorporation or organization.  Such

otherwise) to execute and deliver this Agreement and to
consummate the transactions contemplated hereby.  The execution
and delivery of this Agreement and the consummation of the
transactions contemplated hereby have been duly authorized by
all necessary action (corporate or otherwise) on the part of
such Stockholder.  This Agreement has been duly executed and
delivered by or on behalf of such Stockholder and, assuming its
due authorization, execution and delivery by Viacom,
constitutes a legal, valid and binding obligation of such
Stockholder, enforceable against such Stockholder in accordance
with its terms, subject to the effect of any applicable
bankruptcy, reorganization, insolvency, moratorium or similar
laws affecting creditors' rights generally and subject, as to
enforceability, to the effect of general principles of equity
(regardless of whether such enforceability is considered in a
proceeding in equity or at law).

         SECTION 1.02.  Title to Shares.  Such Stockholder is
the record or beneficial owner of its Shares free and clear of
any proxy or voting restriction other than pursuant to this
Agreement.


                           ARTICLE II

                 TRANSFER AND VOTING OF SHARES

         SECTION 2.01.  Transfer of Shares.  During the Proxy

herein, each Stockholder shall not (a) sell, pledge (other than
Permitted Liens (as defined below)) or otherwise dispose of any
of its Shares, (b) deposit its Shares into a voting trust or
enter into a voting agreement or arrangement with respect to
such Shares or grant any proxy with respect thereto or
(c) enter into any contract, option or other arrangement or
undertaking with respect to the direct or indirect acquisition
or sale, assignment, transfer or other disposition of any
Blockbuster Common Stock.  Exercise of rights or remedies
pursuant to bona fide pledges of Shares to banks or other
financial institutions ("Permitted Liens") are not restricted
by this Agreement.

         SECTION 2.02.  Voting of Shares; Further Assurances.
(a)  Each Stockholder, by this Agreement, with respect to those
Shares that it owns of record, does hereby

<PAGE>

constitute and appoint Viacom, or any nominee of Viacom, with
full power of substitution, during and for the Proxy Term, as
its true and lawful attorney and proxy, for and in its name,
place and stead, to vote each of such Shares as its proxy, at
every annual, special or adjourned meeting of the stockholders
of Blockbuster (including the right to sign its name (as
stockholder) to any consent, certificate or other document
relating to Blockbuster that the law of the State of Delaware
may permit or require) (i) in favor of the adoption of the
Merger Agreement and approval of the Merger and the other
transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement, (ii) against
any proposal for any recapitalization, merger, sale of assets
or other business combination between Blockbuster and any
person or entity (other than the Merger) or any other action or
agreement that would result in a breach of any covenant,
representation or warranty or any other obligation or agreement
of Blockbuster under the Merger Agreement or which could result
in any of the conditions to Blockbuster's obligations under the
Merger Agreement not being fulfilled, and (iii) in favor of any
other matter relating to consummation of the transactions
contemplated by the Merger Agreement.  Each Stockholder further
agrees to cause the Shares owned by it beneficially to be voted
in accordance with the foregoing.

         (b)  For the purposes of this Agreement, "Proxy Term"
shall mean the period from the execution of this Agreement
until the termination of the Merger Agreement, and following
termination of the Merger Agreement (other than a termination
pursuant to Section 8.01(c) thereof), during such time as a
Competing Transaction (as defined in the Merger Agreement)
exists with respect to Blockbuster; provided that in no event
shall the Proxy Term extend beyond the close of business on the
120th day following termination of the Merger Agreement.

         (c)  Each Stockholder shall perform such further acts
and execute such further documents and instruments as may
reasonably be required to vest in Viacom the power to carry out
the provisions of this Agreement.

with the Viacom Class A Common Stock, the "Viacom Common

         WHEREAS, as a condition to the willingness of
Blockbuster to enter into the Merger Agreement, Blockbuster has
required that the Stockholder agree, and in order to induce

         NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing and

intending to be legally bound hereby, the parties hereto hereby
agree as follows:

Certificate of Incorporation of Viacom contemplated thereby,
and (b) against any proposal for any recapitalization, merger,
sale of assets or other business combination between Viacom and
any person or entity (other than the Merger) or any other

acknowledges receipt and review of a copy of the Merger

                           ARTICLE II

       REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES OF THE STOCKHOLDER

         The Stockholder hereby represents and warrants to

         SECTION 2.01.  Authority Relative to This Agreement.
The Stockholder has all necessary power and authority to
execute and deliver this Agreement, to perform its obligations
hereunder and to consummate the transactions contemplated
hereby.  The execution and delivery of this Agreement by the
Stockholder and the consummation by the Stockholder of the
transactions contemplated hereby have been duly and validly
authorized by the Board of Directors of the Stockholder, and no
other corporate proceedings on the part of the Stockholder are
necessary to authorize this Agreement or to consummate such

executed and delivered by the Stockholder and, assuming the due
authorization, execution and delivery by Blockbuster,
constitutes a legal, valid and binding obligation of the
Stockholder, enforceable against the Stockholder in accordance
with its terms.

amendment, acceleration or cancellation of, or result in the
creation of a lien or encumbrance on any of the

<PAGE>

Shares pursuant to, any note, bond, mortgage, indenture,
contract, agreement, lease, license, permit, franchise or other
instrument or obligation to which the Stockholder is a party or
by which the Stockholder or the Shares are bound or affected,
except, in the case of clauses (ii) and (iii), for any such
conflicts, violations, breaches, defaults or other occurrences
which would not prevent or delay the performance by the
Stockholder of its obligations under this Agreement.

         (b)  The execution and delivery of this Agreement by
the Stockholder do not, and the performance of this Agreement
by the Stockholder shall not, require any consent, approval,
authorization or permit of, or filing with or notification to,
any Governmental Entity (as such term is defined in the Merger
Agreement) except for applicable requirements, if any, of the
Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and except where
the failure to obtain such consents, approvals, authorizations
or permits, or to make such filings or notifications, would not
prevent or delay the performance by the Stockholder of its
obligations under this Agreement.

hereof, the Stockholder is the record and beneficial owner of
45,547,214 shares of Viacom Class A Common Stock.  Other than

granted any proxy, which appointment or grant is still
effective, with respect to the Shares.

constitutes the entire agreement between Blockbuster and the

supersedes all prior agreements and understandings, both
written and oral, between Blockbuster and the Stockholder with

         SECTION 4.04.  Amendment.  This Agreement may not be
amended except by an instrument in writing signed by the

materially adverse to any party.  Upon such determination that
any term or other provision is invalid, illegal or incapable or
being enforced, the parties hereto shall negotiate in good
faith to modify this Agreement so as to effect the original
intent of the parties as closely as possible to the fullest
extent permitted by applicable law in a mutually acceptable

hereof.

thereunder and (B) did not at the time they were filed, or will

<PAGE>


to which the Company or any Subsidiary is a party or by which
the Company or any Subsidiary or any property or asset of the

representation or warranty, covenant or agreement of the

<PAGE>


         (c)  Notwithstanding any other provision of this
Agreement, if the Company shall accept shares of common stock
of Paramount Communications Inc. for payment pursuant to its
tender offer therefor but following the Closing shall not
purchase such shares in accordance with the terms of such
offer, then the Purchaser may return the Shares to the Company,
by delivering to the Company the certificates representing the
Shares, duly endorsed in blank, or accompanied by stock powers
duly executed in blank, whereupon the Company shall return the
purchase price therefor, by wire transfer in immediately
available funds to an account of the Purchaser designated by
the Purchaser by notice to the Company.

         6.  (a) The Purchaser acknowledges that the Shares
have not been registered under the 1933 Act or any state
securities law, and hereby agrees not to offer, sell or
otherwise transfer, pledge or hypothecate such Shares unless
and until registered under the 1933 Act and any applicable
state securities law or unless, in the opinion of counsel
reasonably satisfactory to the Company, such offer, sale,
transfer, pledge or hypothecation is exempt from registration
or is otherwise in compliance with the 1933 Act and such laws.

         (b)  Upon issuance of the Shares, and until such time
as the same is no longer required under the applicable
requirements of the 1933 Act, the certificates evidencing the
Shares (and all securities issued in exchange therefor or
substitution thereof) shall bear the following legend:

    THE SECURITIES EVIDENCED BY THIS CERTIFICATE HAVE NOT BEEN
    REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED
    (THE "ACT"), OR ANY STATE SECURITIES LAWS AND MAY NOT BE
    OFFERED, SOLD OR OTHERWISE TRANSFERRED, PLEDGED OR
    HYPOTHECATED UNLESS AND UNTIL REGISTERED UNDER THE ACT AND
    ANY APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS OR UNLESS, IN THE
    OPINION OF COUNSEL REASONABLY SATISFACTORY TO THE ISSUER,
    IN FORM AND SUBSTANCE REASONABLY SATISFACTORY TO THE
    ISSUER, SUCH OFFER, SALE, TRANSFER, PLEDGE OR HYPOTHECATION
    IS EXEMPT FROM REGISTRATION OR IS OTHERWISE IN COMPLIANCE
    WITH THE ACT AND SUCH LAWS.

         7.  In addition to the provisions of paragraph 6, the
Purchaser agrees that prior to the earlier of the termination
of the Merger Agreement and September 30, 1994 it shall not
offer, sell, transfer, pledge or hypothecate any of the Shares,
except that the Shares may be pledged in connection with the
financing of the purchase price specified in paragraph 2,
subject to the same restrictions on alienation applicable to
the Purchaser hereunder.















<PAGE>


         8.  Following the Closing, the Purchaser shall have
the registration rights, and the Company shall have the
obligations, set forth in Annex I.  Such registration rights
shall be assignable by the Purchaser to any party purchasing
Shares directly from the Purchaser, but shall not be further
assignable by such subsequent purchaser or purchasers.

         9.  (a)   The representations and warranties contained
in this Agreement shall survive the Closing until the first
anniversary of the Closing Date.

         (b)  The Purchaser and its Affiliates, officers,
directors, employees, agents, successors and assigns shall be
indemnified and held harmless by the Company for any and all
liabilities, losses, damages, claims, costs and expenses,
interest, awards, judgments and penalties (including, without
limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees and expenses) (a "Loss")
actually suffered or incurred by them, arising out of or
resulting from the breach of any representation or warranty or
covenant of the Company contained in this Agreement.

         (c)  The Company and its Affiliates, officers,
directors, employees, agents, successors and assigns shall be
indemnified and held harmless by the Purchaser for any and all
Losses actually suffered or incurred by them, arising out of or
resulting from the breach of any representation or warranty or
covenant of the Purchaser contained in this Agreement.

         10.  (a)  The Purchaser agrees that neither the
Purchaser nor any of its Affiliates shall participate in any
transaction that, directly or indirectly, would have the effect
of precluding or competing with the Paramount Transaction.

         (b)  The Company agrees that it shall not make any
material change in the aggregate amount or forms of
consideration to be paid in, or in any other material terms and
conditions of, the Paramount Transaction from the aggregate
amount and forms of consideration described in the amendment to
be filed on the date hereof to the Company's Tender Offer
Statement on Schedule 14D-1, without the prior consent of the
Purchaser, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld.

         (c)  The Company agrees that prior to consummation of
the Paramount Transaction, the Company shall receive an opinion
from Smith Barney Shearson Inc. that the consideration actually
to be paid by the Company in such


















<PAGE>


transaction is fair, from a financial point of view, to the
Company and the stockholders of the Company, which opinion
shall not have been withdrawn at the time the Company accepts
shares of common stock of Paramount Communications Inc. for
payment pursuant to its tender offer therefor.

         11.  The Purchaser, on the one hand, and the Company,
on the other, acknowledge and agree that irreparable damage
would occur in the event that any of the provisions of this
Agreement were not performed in accordance with their specific
terms or were otherwise breached.  It is accordingly agreed
that the parties shall be entitled to equitable relief
(including injunction and specific performance) in any action
instituted in any court of the United States or any state
thereof having subject matter jurisdiction, as a remedy for any
such breach or to prevent any breach of this Agreement.  Such
remedies shall not be deemed to be the exclusive remedies for a
breach or anticipatory breach of this Agreement, but shall be
in addition to all other remedies available at law or equity to
the parties hereto.  To the extent permitted by applicable law,
the parties hereto irrevocably submit to the exclusive
jurisdiction of the courts of the State of New York and the
United States of America located in the State of New York for
any suits, actions or proceedings arising out of or relating to
this Agreement.

         12.  This Agreement, its Annexes and Exhibits contain
the entire understandings of the parties with respect to the
subject matter hereof, thereby superseding all prior agreements
of the parties relating to the subject matter hereof (other
than the Confidentiality Agreement entered into between the
Purchaser and Viacom International Inc. dated July 1, 1993),
and may not be amended except by a writing signed by the
parties.  Except as otherwise provided herein, this Agreement
is not assignable by any of the parties; provided that the
Purchaser may assign its rights and obligations under this
Agreement to a wholly owned subsidiary of the Purchaser, so
long as the Purchaser shall remain liable for all financial and
performance obligations of the Purchaser hereunder.  This
Agreement shall be binding upon, and inure to the benefit of,
the respective successors of the parties.  This Agreement may
be executed in counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an
original, but all of which together will constitute one and the
same instrument.

         13.  Any notices and other communications required to
be given pursuant to this Agreement shall be in writing and
shall be given by delivery by hand, by mail (registered or
certified mail, postage prepaid, return receipt requested) or
by facsimile transmission or telex, as follows:

respect to the Asset Purchase Transaction, such period of time

         (b)  For the purposes of this paragraph 17, the
following terms shall have the following meanings:

    (i)  "Measurement Period" shall mean the period commencing

    $55 and the Class B Trading Price, up to, but in no event
    exceeding for the purpose of such calculation, a difference
    of $4.40 and (B) 50% of the aggregate of (1) the number of
    Shares Beneficially Owned by the Purchaser (and not subject
    to contracts of sale) on the First Anniversary and (2) the
    Sold Shares multiplied by the difference between $55 and
    the Class B Trading Price, up to, but in no event exceeding

    $19.80.

    (v) "Marketable Security" shall mean any debt or equity
    security, or a combination of debt and equity securities,
    issued by the Company with such terms, as agreed by
    SmithBarney Shearson Inc. on behalf of the Company and by
















<PAGE>


    Merrill Lynch & Co. on behalf of the Purchaser, as would
    cause such security to trade on a fully distributed basis
    after the date of its issuance at the value attributed to
    such security in satisfying the Make-Whole Amount as
    provided in paragraph 17(c) below.  If Smith Barney
    Shearson Inc. and Merrill Lynch & Co. are unable to agree
    on such terms within 10 Business Days after the First
    Anniversary, the Purchaser shall select one investment bank
    from a list of at least five investment banks of national
    standing supplied to the Purchaser by the Company, which
    investment bank shall, not later than 5 Business Days after

    Shares, and only up to the first 4,547,454 Shares, of any
    Shares sold by the Purchaser after the Termination Date and
    prior to the First Anniversary; provided that Sold Shares
    shall not include any of such Shares sold by the Purchaser
    for gross proceeds equal to or greater than $55 per Share.

    (vi)  "Asset Purchase Transaction" shall mean the
    transaction with the material terms described in Annex II.

         (c)  The Company shall be entitled to satisfy its
obligation with respect to the Make-Whole Amount, at the option
of the Company through written notice to the Purchaser no later
than  5 Business Days following the First Anniversary, by any
of the following means:

    (i)  Delivery to the Purchaser of cash in an amount equal
    to the Make-Whole Amount by wire transfer of immediately
    available funds to an account specified by the Purchaser;
    or

    (ii)  Delivery to the Purchaser of Marketable Securities
    with an aggregate value (determined as specified above)

    the Make-Whole Amount; or

    (iv)  Consummation of the Asset Purchase Transaction;

















<PAGE>


provided that in the event the Company has given notice to the
Purchaser as provided above of its intent to satisfy all or a
portion of the Make-Whole Amount with Marketable Securities and
the Company determines, in its sole discretion, that the terms
of the Marketable Securities are unacceptable to the Company,
the Company shall be entitled to satisfy the Make-Whole Amount
through any of the other means specified above in lieu of using
Marketable Securities.

                            ANNEX I

                      Registration Rights


         (a)  From time to time after the earlier of the
termination of the Merger Agreement and September 30, 1994, the
Purchaser shall have the right to make six requests of the
Company in writing: with respect to the first such request to
register under the 1933 Act at least $100 million in market
value of the Shares beneficially owned by the Purchaser (the
Shares subject to any such request hereunder being referred to
as the "Subject Stock"), and with each subsequent such request
being at least 6 months following such prior request which
resulted in a registration statement with respect to the
Subject Stock which was effective until the earlier of the
completion of the offering of such Subject Stock or three
months.  The Company shall use all reasonable efforts to cause
the Subject Stock to be registered under the 1933 Act as soon
as reasonably practicable after receipt of a request so as to
permit promptly the sale thereof, and in connection therewith,
the Company shall prepare and file, on such appropriate form as
the Company in its discretion shall determine, a registration
statement under the 1933 Act to effect such registration.  The
Company shall use all reasonable efforts to list all Subject
Stock covered by such registration statement on any national
securities exchange on which the Class B Common Stock is then
listed or, if such listing cannot be made, to list such Subject
Stock on the National Association of Securities Dealers
Automated Quotation System or National Market System.  The
Purchaser hereby undertakes to provide all such information and
materials and take all such action as may be required in order
to permit the Company to comply with all applicable
requirements of the Commission and to obtain any desired
acceleration of the effective date of such registration
statement.  Any registration statement filed at the Purchaser's
request hereunder will not count as a requested registration
(i) unless effectiveness is maintained until the earlier of
completion of the offering and three months or (ii) if the
Purchaser is required to reduce the number of Shares as to
which registration was requested hereunder as a result of the
inclusion in such registration of securities of a third party
without the consent of the Purchaser.  Notwithstanding the
foregoing, the Company (i) shall not be obligated to cause any
special audit to be undertaken in connection with any such
registration (provided that this provision shall not relieve
the Company of its obligation to obtain any required consents
with respect to financial statements in prior periods) and
(ii) shall be entitled to postpone for a reasonable period of
time (not to exceed 180 days) the filing of any registration
statement otherwise





                               2


<PAGE>


required to be prepared and filed by the Company if the Company
is, at such time, either (A) conducting or in active
preparation to conduct an underwritten public offering of
equity securities (or securities convertible into equity
securities) or is subject to a contractual obligation not to
engage in a public offering and is advised in writing by its
managing underwriter or underwriters (with a copy to the
Purchaser) that such offering would in its or their opinion be
adversely affected by the registration so requested or (B)
subject to an existing contractual obligation to its
underwriters not to engage in a public offering; provided,
however, that the Company may not exercise such right to
postpone the filing of a registration statement for more than
180 days in any 365-day period.

         The Purchaser may use one or more of the registration
requests to which it is entitled pursuant to the preceding
paragraph to require the Company to register Shares on a
registration statement also covering securities of the
Purchaser convertible into or exchangeable for Shares and may
assume primary responsibility for the preparation of such
registration statement.  In such event, in which each of the
Company and the Purchaser shall be registrants of securities
registered, in addition to the indemnification provided herein,
the Company shall be entitled to receive indemnifications from
the Purchaser consistent with the indemnifications provided
herein to be granted by the Company to the Purchaser and the
Purchaser shall reimburse the Company for one half of any fees,
expenses and disbursements referred to in the second sentence
of paragraph (c) below for which the Company is otherwise
responsible.

         At any time after the earlier of the termination of
the Merger Agreement and September 30, 1994, if the Company
proposes to file a registration statement under the 1933 Act
with respect to an offering of shares of its equity securities
(i) for its own account (other than a registration statement on
Form S-4 or S-8 (or any substitute form that may be adopted by
the Commission)) or (ii) for the account of any holders of its
securities (including any pursuant to a demand registration),
then the Company shall give written notice of such proposed
filing to the Purchaser as soon as practicable (but in any
event not less than 5 Business Days before the anticipated
filing date), and such notice shall offer the Purchaser the
opportunity to register such number of Shares as the Purchaser
requests.  If the Purchaser wishes to register Shares, such
registration shall be on the same terms and conditions as the
registration of the Company's or such holders' shares of Class B
Common Stock (a "Piggyback Registration").  Notwithstanding
anything contained herein,











                               3

<PAGE>



if the lead underwriter of an offering involving a Piggyback
Registration delivers a written opinion to the Company that the
success of such offering would be materially and adversely
affected by inclusion of all the securities requested to be
included, then the number of securities to be registered by
each party requesting registration rights shall be reduced in
proportion to the number of securities originally requested to
be registered by each of them.  Nothing contained herein shall
require the Company to reduce the number of shares proposed to
be issued by the Company.

         Other than as required by contractual obligations of
the Company existing on the date of this Agreement, no
securities may be registered on a registration statement
requested by the Purchaser under this Agreement without the
Purchaser's express written consent.  The Company agrees that
following the date of this Agreement it shall not grant to any
person any rights to compel inclusion of securities in any
registration statement requested by the Purchaser under this
Agreement without the Purchaser's express written consent.

         (b)  In connection with any offering of shares of
Subject Stock registered pursuant to this Annex I, the Company
(i) shall furnish to the Purchaser such number of copies of any
prospectus (including any preliminary prospectus) as it may
reasonably request in order to effect the offering and sale of
the Subject Stock to be offered and sold, but only while the
Company shall be required under the provisions hereof to cause
the registration statement to remain current and (ii) take such
action as shall be necessary to qualify the shares covered by
such registration statement under such "blue sky" or other
state securities laws for offer and sale as the Purchaser shall
request; provided, however, that the Company shall not be
obligated to qualify as a foreign corporation to do business
under the laws of any jurisdiction in which it shall not then
be qualified or to file any general consent to service of
process in any jurisdiction in which such a consent has not
been previously filed.  If applicable, the Company shall enter
into an underwriting agreement with a managing underwriter or
underwriters selected by the Purchaser (reasonably satisfactory
to the Company) containing representations, warranties,
indemnities and agreements then customarily included by an
issuer in underwriting agreements with respect to secondary
distributions; provided, however, that such underwriter or
underwriters shall agree to use their best efforts to ensure
that the offering results in a distribution of the Subject
Stock sold in accordance with the terms of the agreement.  In
connection with any offering of












                               4



<PAGE>


Subject Stock registered pursuant to this Annex I, the Company
shall (x) furnish to the underwriter, at the Company's expense,
unlegended certificates representing ownership of the Subject
Stock being sold in such denominations as requested and (y)
instruct any transfer agent and registrar of the Subject Stock
to release any stop transfer orders with respect to such
Subject Stock.  Upon any registration becoming effective
pursuant to this Annex I, the Company shall use all reasonable
efforts to keep such registration statement current for such
period as shall be required for the disposition of all of said
Subject Stock; provided, however, that such period need not
exceed three months.

         (c)  The Purchaser shall pay all underwriting
discounts and commissions related to shares of Subject Stock
being sold by the Purchaser.  The Company shall pay all other
fees and expenses in connection with any registration
statement, including, without limitation, all registration and
filing fees, all fees and expenses of complying with securities
or "blue sky" laws, fees and disbursements of the Company's
counsel, the counsel of the Purchaser, accountants (including
the expenses of "cold comfort" letters required by or incident
to such performance and compliance) and any fees and
disbursements of underwriters customarily paid by issuers in
secondary offerings.

         (d)  In the case of any offering registered pursuant
to this Annex I, the Company agrees to indemnify and hold the
Purchaser, each underwriter of Shares under such registration
and each person who controls any of the foregoing within the
meaning of Section 15 of the 1933 Act and the directors and
officers of the Purchaser, harmless against any and all losses,
claims, damages, liabilities or actions to which they or any of
them may become subject under the 1933 Act or any other statute
or common law or otherwise, and to reimburse them for any legal
or other expenses reasonably incurred by them in connection
with investigating any claims and defending any actions,
insofar as any such losses, claims, damages, liabilities or
actions shall arise out of or shall be based upon (i) any
untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of a material fact
contained in the registration statement relating to the sale of
such Subject Stock, or the omission or alleged omission to
state therein a material fact required to be stated therein or
necessary to make the statements therein, in light of the
circumstances under which they were made, not misleading or
(ii) any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of a
material fact contained in any preliminary prospectus (as
amended or supplemented if the Company shall have filed with
the Commission any amendment












                               5


<PAGE>


thereof or supplement thereto), if used prior to the effective
date of such registration statement, or contained in the
prospectus (as amended or supplemented if the Company shall
have filed with the Commission any amendment thereof or
supplement thereto), or the omission or alleged omission to
state therein a material fact necessary in order to make the
statements therein, in light of the circumstances under which
they were made, not misleading; provided, however, that the
indemnification agreement contained in this paragraph (d) shall
not apply to such losses, claims, damages, liabilities or
actions which shall arise from the sale of Subject Stock by the
Purchaser if such losses, claims, damages, liabilities or
actions shall arise out of or shall be based upon any such
untrue statement or alleged untrue statement, or any such
omission or alleged omission, if such statement or omission
shall have been (x) made in reliance upon and in conformity
with information furnished in writing to the Company by the
Purchaser or any such underwriter specifically for use in
connection with the preparation of the registration statement
or any preliminary prospectus or prospectus contained in the
registration statement or any such amendment thereof or
supplement thereto or (y) made in any preliminary prospectus,
and the prospectus contained in the registration statement in
the form filed by the Company with the Commission pursuant to
Rule 424(b) under the 1933 Act shall have corrected such
statement or omission and a copy of such prospectus shall not
have been sent or given to such person at or prior to the
confirmation of such sale to him.

         (e)  In the case of each offering registered pursuant
to this Annex I, the Purchaser and each underwriter
participating therein shall agree, in the same manner and to
the same extent as set forth in paragraph (d) of this Annex I
severally to indemnify and hold harmless the Company and each
person, if any, who controls the Company within the meaning of
Section 15 of the 1933 Act, and the directors and officers of
the Company, and in the case of each such underwriter, the
Purchaser, each person, if any, who controls the Purchaser
within the meaning of Section 15 of the 1933 Act and the
directors, officers and partners of the Purchaser, with respect
to any statement in or omission from such registration
statement or any preliminary prospectus (as amended or as
supplemented, if amended or supplemented as aforesaid) or
prospectus contained in such registration statement (as amended
or as supplemented, if amended or supplemented as aforesaid),
if such statement or omission shall have been made in reliance
upon and in conformity with information furnished in writing to
the Company by the Purchaser or such underwriter specifically
for use in connection with the preparation of such registration












                               6


<PAGE>


statement or any preliminary prospectus or prospectus contained
in such registration statement or any such amendment thereof or
supplement thereto.

         (f)  Each party indemnified under paragraph (d) or (e)
of this Annex I shall, promptly after receipt of notice of the
commencement of any action against such indemnified party in
respect of which indemnity may be sought hereunder, notify the
indemnifying party in writing of the commencement thereof.  The
omission of any indemnified party to so notify an indemnifying
party of any such action shall not relieve the indemnifying
party from any liability in respect of such action which it may
have to such indemnified party on account of the indemnity
agreement contained in paragraph (d) or (e) of this Annex I,
unless the indemnifying party was prejudiced by such omission,
and in no event shall relieve the indemnifying party from any
other liability which it may have to such indemnified party.
In case any such action shall be brought against any
indemnified party and it shall notify an indemnifying party of
the commencement thereof, the indemnifying party shall be
entitled to participate therein and, to the extent that it may
desire, jointly with any other indemnifying party similarly
notified, to assume the defense thereof, and after notice from
the indemnifying party to such indemnified party of its
election so to assume the defense thereof, the indemnifying
party shall not be liable to such indemnified party under
paragraph (d) or (e) of this Annex I for any legal or other
expenses subsequently incurred by such indemnified party in
connection with the defense thereof, other than reasonable
costs of investigation.

         (g)  If the indemnification provided for under
paragraph (d) or (e) shall for any reason be held by a court to
be unavailable to an indemnified party under paragraph (d) or
(e) hereof in respect of any loss, claim, damage or liability,
or any action in respect thereof, then, in lieu of the amount
paid or payable under paragraph (d) or (e) hereof, the
indemnified party and the indemnifying party under paragraph
(d) or (e) hereof shall contribute to the aggregate losses,
claims, damages and liabilities (including legal or other
expenses reasonably incurred in connection with investigating
the same), (i) in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect
the relative fault of the Company and the prospective seller of
Securities covered by the registration statement which resulted
in such loss, claim, damage or liability, or action in respect
thereof, with respect to the statements or omissions which
resulted in such loss, claim, damage or liability, or action in
respect thereof, as well as any other relevant equitable
considerations or (ii) if the allocation provided by clause












                               7


<PAGE>


(i) above is not permitted by applicable law, in such
proportion as shall be appropriate to reflect the relative
benefits received by the Company and such prospective seller
from the offering of the securities covered by such
registration statement.  No Person guilty of fraudulent
misrepresentation (within the meaning of Section 11(f) of the
1933 Act) shall be entitled to contribution from any Person who
was not guilty of such fraudulent misrepresentation.  In
addition, no Person shall be obligated to contribute hereunder
any amounts in payment for any settlement of any action or
claim effected without such Person's consent, which consent
shall not be unreasonably withheld.

the Company and the Purchaser agrees to act in good faith and
use all reasonable best efforts to take all steps necessary and
advisable to effect the transaction consistent with the terms
set forth in this Annex II as soon as practicable after such
election is made.

2.  Unless the parties otherwise agree and so long as such
structure would be consistent with the intent of the
transaction as expressed in this Annex II, the acquisition of
the Parks Business by the Purchaser shall be effected through
the acquisition of all of the capital stock of Patriot Parks
Inc. and the Option of the Company to acquire a 50% equity
interest in the Parks Business, if exercised, shall be effected
through the acquisition of 50% of the capital stock of Patriot
Parks Inc.

Asset Purchase Transaction pursuant to paragraph 17 and the
Purchaser does not Beneficially Own sufficient shares of Class B
Common Stock to pay the full Parks Purchase Price with such
shares, the Purchaser shall have the right, at its option,
either (a) to pay in cash such amount of the Parks Purchase
Price not paid in Class B Common Stock and thereby still
purchase 100% of the Parks Business or (b) to purchase only
such percentage of the equity of the Parks Business as equals
the percentage of the Parks Purchase Price that the Purchaser
pays with all of the shares of Class B Common Stock
Beneficially Owned by the Purchaser.

    In the event that the Purchaser elects to purchase less

the following adjustments to the Asset Purchase Transaction
shall be made:

    (A) The Company and the Purchaser shall enter into a
    stockholders' or other similar agreement containing such

    the Company and the Purchaser would own the Parks Business;
    provided that in the event the Purchaser acquires less than
    a 50% equity interest in the Parks Business, the Company
    shall retain the right to elect a majority of the board of
    directors or other governing body of the Parks Business and

    (B) The Purchaser shall grant the Option to the Company
    only in the event that the Purchaser acquires an equity
    interest in the Parks Business of greater than 50% and the
    equity interest for which the Option may be exercised by
    the Company shall be equal only to such percentage as would
    result in the Purchaser, after exercise of the Option by
    the Company, owning a 50% equity interest in the Parks
    Business.  In such event, the Option Price shall be
    decreased in proportion to the percentage decrease from a
    50% equity interest to the percentage interest for which

BLOCKBUSTER AND VIACOM ANNOUNCE $8.4 BILLION MERGER

VIACOM INC. INCREASES ITS TENDER OFFER TO $105 PER SHARE FOR
50.1% OF PARAMOUNT STOCK

- - Market Capitalization of Combined
Viacom/Blockbuster/Paramount
Valued at $26 Billion -


New York, New York, January 7, 1993 --  Viacom Inc. (ASE: VIA
and VIAB) and Blockbuster Entertainment Corporation (NYSE: BV)
today announced they have entered into a definitive merger
agreement under which Blockbuster will merge into Viacom.
Under the terms of the agreement, which was unanimously
approved by the Boards of Directors of both companies,
Blockbuster shareholders will receive .08 of a share of Viacom
Class A Common Stock, and .60615 of a share of Viacom Class B
Common Stock, and one variable common right (VCR) for each
share of Blockbuster.  The transaction is valued at $8.4
billion, based on the closing market prices of Viacom stock on
January 6, 1994.  The combined Viacom/Blockbuster company will
be named Viacom-Blockbuster Inc.

Viacom also announced an increase to $105 per share, or $6.5
billion, for the 50.1% in cash consideration to be paid to
shareholders of Paramount Communications Inc. (NYSE: PCI)
under its revised tender offer.

Viacom and Blockbuster together announced that, subject
 to the
consummation of Viacom's tender offer for Paramount,
Blockbuster has agreed to invest $1.25 billion in Viacom by
purchasing approximately 23 million shares of Viacom Class B
Common Stock at $55.00 per share.  The shares purchased by
Blockbuster will reduce the number of shares previously

offered to existing Paramount shareholders, placing shares
that would otherwise have been distributed to public
shareholders in the hands of Blockbuster.  The additional cash
component of this transaction, provided by the Blockbuster
investment, will provide Paramount shareholders with increased
monetary consideration and added value, with virtually no
dilution to shareholders.  In the context of the ultimate
combination of Viacom, Blockbuster and Paramount, the
resulting company will enjoy a significantly strengthened
capital structure.  Upon the completion of the Paramount
acquisition, the company will be renamed.

"The combination of Viacom with Blockbuster and Paramount
creates a uniquely diversified portfolio of global
entertainment assets and operations with extraordinary
capacity to exploit worldwide opportunities.  The potential
for the exploitation and expansion of brand names and
franchises will be dramatic," said Sumner M. Redstone,
Chairman of the Board of Viacom.

"Blockbuster's established relationships with customers and
large presence in the retail video and music markets provide
Viacom with important access and distribution to consumers of
entertainment products.

"We look forward to welcoming Blockbuster and its employees to
the Viacom family.  Blockbuster's headquarters will be
maintained in Ft. Lauderdale.

"From the very beginning, Viacom's strategic rationale for
joining forces with Paramount was the creation of a new global
entertainment powerhouse with an array of complementary,
world-class assets in a wide variety of entertainment and
communication businesses,"  Mr. Redstone stated.

H. Wayne Huizenga, Chairman of the Board of Blockbuster, said,
"This transaction is an exciting development for our company
and our shareholders, reflecting the vision we share with
Viacom related to building a global integrated entertainment
company.  Blockbuster's retail distribution systems and our
programming and production business together with Viacom's
entertainment franchises represent a formidable combination."

William C. Ferguson, Chairman of NYNEX Corporation, expressing
strong support for today's announcement, said, "We initially












<PAGE>







joined forces with Viacom in our belief that Viacom presented
numerous opportunities to leverage our existing businesses by
pursuing joint opportunities.  We continue to believe that a
combined Viacom/Blockbuster/ Paramount will bring value to
NYNEX."

With the completion of the merger, Mr. Redstone will become
Chairman of the Board of the combined company and will own 61%
of the combined company's voting stock.  With the completion
of the Blockbuster merger, Mr. Huizenga will

become Vice Chairman of the combined company.  This new entity
will have a mutually agreed upon Board of Directors consisting
of six Directors designated by Viacom, three Directors
designated by Blockbuster, including Mr. Huizenga and Steven
R. Berrard, Blockbuster's Vice Chairman, two Directors
designated by NYNEX Corporation, including William C.
Ferguson, Chairman of NYNEX Corporation and a current Director
of Viacom's board, and one independent Director.

The Tender Offer for Paramount and Related Merger
Viacom's tender offer has been extended to Friday, January 21,
1994.  Under the terms of the Exemption Agreement between
Viacom and Paramount and the Agreement and Plan of Merger
between QVC Network Inc. and Paramount, Viacom said that QVC
would also be required to extend its offer to expire no
earlier than that date.  As permitted by the terms of the
Exemption Agreement, Viacom's amended tender offer is for
50.1% of the outstanding shares of the common stock of
Paramount.  Viacom's offer contemplates the execution of a
definitive merger agreement with Paramount providing for the
conversion of each share of Paramount that is not acquired
pursuant to the offer into the right to receive .93065 shares
of Viacom Class B Common Stock and .30408 of a share of
Viacom's convertible preferred stock.  Viacom said that as of
the close of business on Thursday, January 6, 1994,
approximately 2,305,900 shares of Paramount stock had been
tendered and not withdrawn.

Under the Exemption Agreement, Paramount is required to
execute the definitive merger agreement if 50.1% of the












<PAGE>







outstanding shares of Paramount are validly tendered for
Viacom's offer and not withdrawn by its expiration date.
Other terms of Viacom's offer, including the terms of the
convertible preferred stock in the merger with Paramount, are
substantially unchanged from Viacom's existing offer.

The Blockbuster/Viacom Merger
The merger of Blockbuster into Viacom, which is intended to be
tax-free, is subject to customary conditions, including
approval of shareholders of both companies.  However, the
merger is not conditioned upon consummation of Viacom's tender
offer or any other transaction involving Paramount.

Viacom said that certain Blockbuster shareholders holding
approximately 22.7% of the outstanding Blockbuster shares,
including Mr. Huizenga and Mr. Berrard, had granted Viacom
proxies to vote in favor of the proposed merger.  Viacom also
said that certain Blockbuster shareholders granted Viacom
options to purchase a portion of such shares amounting to 6.1%
of Blockbuster's outstanding shares at a price of $30.125 per
share.  Mr. Huizenga and Mr. Berrard were among the
Blockbuster stockholders who provided Viacom with stock
options and proxies with respect to their personal holdings of
shares.

The variable common rights (VCRs) to be issued in connection
with this transaction convert into Viacom Class B shares under
certain circumstances.  The number of Viacom Class B shares
into which the VCRs will convert will
- -more-
- -6-

generally be based upon the highest 30 consecutive trading day
average price for Viacom Class B Common Stock during the 90
trading days prior to the conversion date, which occurs on the
first anniversary of the completion of the Blockbuster merger.
In the event that such value is less than $48 per share and
more than $40 per share, the VCRs will convert into the right
to receive .05929 of a share of Viacom Class B Common Stock.
If such value is below $40 per share, such number of shares
will increase ratably to the maximum of .13829 of a share of
Viacom Class B Common Stock at a value of $36 per share or, if
such value is above $48 per share, the number of shares into
