After losing a significant number of customers last quarter
after their feud with CBS blacked out content for millions of users, Time Warner Cable appears interested in spreading a little holiday cheer. According to a post in our forums
, Time Warner Cable customers are being sent mailers giving them three free months of Showtime (assuming they are in good standing and don't already subscribe to the channel). According to users, customers are given a code and are told to enter it at this website
, though users also note customers can call 1-866-444-8937. There's some codes being passed around in our forums, though note Time Warner Cable's response time to the offer appears sluggish due to customer demand.
Free SHO - my experience with it Hi all...
After I entered the code, it said I would get an emailed confirmation. I didn't, so I emailed support the next morning. Funny, yes.. I know.. Regardless, no email, no response, however, after 2 long days it popped in. I checked it with my TWC iPad app before wasting my time adding the channels on my TiVo. All 8 or so channels work fine but typical with Showtime, the content sucks.
I can confirm all HD, FAMZP, SHOW, WOMANP, NEXTP, etc works. As well, the on-demand channels using the iOS app and the new on-demand content now (finally!) on Roku as well.
It is stated that I need not cancel. It will cancel itself. If it doesn't and I get charged, I've never had issues (knocking on my wood..) at my local office with credits and service add-ones or disconnects.
Now, if they could work on that content then I'd be happy. It's mostly Series like Homeland and Masters of Sex with a few good oldies here and there. My wife loves the "FAMZP" channel content with 80's teen comedies like Adventures in Babysitting and Uptown Girls. I checked out the Big Labowski and finally watched Lincoln. So... Yea... Free...
I have to add that I laughed my ass of with this title on WOMENP : "Batbabe: The Dark Nightie". In the description, "... Porn-stealing mastermind known as The Jerker". Ha. Kills me. Worth it just for the title! No... not gonna watch it... Maybe.. Ha...
