    Stock Symbol: ICH

    MONTREAL, May 20 /CNW Telbec/ - Intercable ICH inc. (Intercable), a
Canadian telecommunications company that seeks broadband telecommunications
opportunities in the international market, is providing its first biweekly
Default Status Report under National Policy 12-203 - Cease Trade Orders for
Continuous Disclosure Defaults ("NP 12-203"). On May 4, 2009, Intercable
announced that its audited annual financial statements, management discussion
and analysis ("MD&A") and CEO and CFO certifications for the year ended
December 31, 2008 would not be released as required by April 30, 2009.
    In accordance with NP 12-203 and as previously announced, Intercable has
voluntarily requested that the Autorité des marchés financiers and other
Canadian securities regulatory authorities issue a temporary order that
prohibits certain directors, officers and insiders of Intercable from trading
in securities of Intercable for as long as the annual financial statements,
related MD&A and CEO and CFO certifications are not filed (the "Management
Cease Trade Order").
    Discussions are still ongoing with the objective to complete, in the
short term, the planned private placement previously announced of 6 million
Euros. Intercable still anticipates that the release of the annual financial
statements, related MD&A and CEO and CFO certifications will occur no later
than June 8, 2009.
    Intercable reports that since announcing the Management Cease Trade Order
of May 4, 2009, there have not been any material changes to the information
contained therein; nor any failure by Intercable to fulfill its intentions as
stated therein with respect to satisfying the provisions of the alternative
information guidelines, and there are no additional defaults or anticipated
defaults subsequent to such announcement. Further, there have been no
additional material changes respecting Intercable and its affairs. Intercable
intends to file, if required, its next Default Status Report by June 3, 2009.
