Seems can still d/l the free TV Player for it. CNN NBC CBS (LA) Bloomberg etc. Fast & clear. Has some icky movies for cheaps.
My response to all of you as a former cable guy First I know I will be flamed by some of you, and I know that some people have had some bad experiences with cable and many of their service and install techs are idiots; but read this anyway not all of it is flattering for TWC...
Yes this bundle is focused towards a better experience not necessarily value, problem is ALL TWC customers are supposed to receive a great customer service experience.
Time warner generally gives 2 to 4 hr windows for appointments, If your tech does not make those you can call in and get a 20 dollar credit for them being late, but they do also have 8am appointments where the tech will be there 8 am on the dot, they also in some areas have 1 hr windows but as a former tech over my 7 years there I was only ever late for a handful of appointments and generally called ahead to let the customers know when during their time window I would be there.
Yes the 50 meg service is not symmetrical neither is DSL, you may get symmetrical service if you have fiber to the house but I doubt if even AT&T would waste bandwidth giving you a 50 meg capacity for upstream, unless you are sending many large files out a huge upstream bandwidth is not needed as you do not send very much data, if you do need huge upstream then cable and DSL may not be for you, don't blame the provider for not having what you need you should get a service that offers that, like T1 or OC-3 or if u-verse or Wow offer it then get their service. But don't blame a service provider for not giving you something that only a few people actually would use.
Yes the DVR's SUCK when especially when compared to Dish Networks DVR's, TWC does have a Samsung DVR that is pretty nice but it is difficult to get that one.
If Techs were just swapping modems or boxes to fix your problem maybe you should get pissed and ask for a supervisor, some (many) Techs are complete idiots and or lazy and either put band aids on problems or swap equipment. But if you have more then 2 calls and your problem is not resolved ALWAYS ask for a supervisor, and if they don't help go higher, trust me usually if you get a service supervisor and tell him you want to talk to a manager they generally get worried and make sure things get fixed.
Some Techs actually care and do their best to help customers unfortunately many of those techs also speak out about problems that can be addressed and or fixed by upper management who then get upset and fire those techs as soon an opportunity arises. If Cable is your only option and you are getting bad service there are things you can do like call better business bureau or a utilities commission or even call and speak to supervisors and higher. most cable issues can be easily fixed you just need to get someone that cares about your service unfortunately people like that are far and few these days.
