Is the BYU channel allowed to show pre-marital kissing?

Just a tip bc TWC is quite expensive.

If u have a full package of cable, and watch say Showtime for Dexter etc. cancel the excess channels (Showtime package) until u are ready to watch when the season starts. Then once the season is over cancel the SHO channels.

This will save $$ and get back at TWC

And I got a letter today saying they are going up $17.00-20.00 per month???? Explain that please!

Will TWC ever start carrying Viacom networks in HD?

Will they ever get the NFL Network?

Until both those happen they are no longer an option to me. I'm not going to be a party to their 'bidding war' while they 'hold the line' for the customer.

They now do have Viacom channels in HD. MTV, VH1, and Nickelodeon were all recently added to the HD lineup in February.

I have AT&T U-Verse, which is available in Charlotte, and we have had these HD channels for months. BTW - U-Verse has the whole house DVR and it DOES NOT cost $19.95 a month!

Constant innovations? Langston, you really crack me up.

Get back to me when they turn off 90% of the analogs, switch to MPEG4 and up the bit rate to offer a better picture. Oh yea, being able to delete a show on a remote DVR in their whole house offering would be nice too. As would the ability to add external storage or allow the device to connect to the internet to pull content from it.

Constant innovation. TWC. That's rich.

Cable's dead. Internet content is the wave of the future.

They don't even have The Weather Channel in HD? I just had them scheduled to come install digital cable Thursday. I am going to cancel and get U-Verse. That's absurd.

TWC used to allow you to sory your TV GUIDE... where you only view the channels you like.... They issued an upgrade about 2 years ago that forces you to flip through every single channel to see what is on your favorite station.... Great Upgrade TWC!

Don't care until WGN and the NFL Network are added. What a joke of a company, unfortunately I'm stuck with them since I have an apt. WORST CABLE COMPANY ON THE PLANET

Hey, this is great news for Time Warner customers - but why do you think this is so "innovative"? DISH Network has allowed customers with Sling equipment to watch all of their live TV and DVR recordings on the go (not tied to the home) on any 3G or wireless network. And, as a DISH customer/employee who uses this on a daily basis, I can tell you the quality is simply amazing. Now that it's baseball season it'll be awesome watching my Cubbies win while at work.
