Comcast has bought out TWC.

Great. Expect the rates to increase again. I'm getting ever closer to the notion of cancelling cable and spending the money on either tickets to games or sports bars to watch it.

Been pretty dissapointed in TWC lately. Hopefully this will be much better.

Speaking of cable companies, any word on SEC Network? I bet they will get it now since this will apparently cover a huge amount of customers.

The DOJ should not allow this deal to go through just like the AT&T and T-Mobile deal last year. That being said the VP of Comcast is Obamas good buddy and number 1 fund raiser....

I don't have either of these but I've been considering the same thing. I watch so little TV and the only real thing I would miss without one is sports and the ability to record events I'm not home to watch.

I deal with Comcast when I'm at home and TWC when I'm at school. The data cap is the only thing against Comcast in my books. TWC has screwed me too many times to count.

This is a big sign that shows cable television is in trouble, or at least how it is delivered presently.

They need to merge to compete with other data giants.

The more they consolidate into a oligopoly, the worse for us the consumers. We are going to get screwed over with all these mergers taking place. Comcast Agrees to Buy Time Warner Cable for $45.2 Billion. Meanwhile, "ESPN is working hard to ensure that the SEC Network will be available via cable, satellite and telco distributors (such as Comcast, Time Warner Cable, DirecTV, DISH Network, AT&T U-verse, and Verizon FiOS)." SEC Network FAQ

ESPN's strategy likely means that the A&M game will only be available in bars that can get an SEC Network feed.
Quote:
According to John Ourand and Michael Smith in this week's Sports Business Journal, ESPN plans to charge cable and satellite providers in the 11 state conference footprint $1.30 per subscriber. That would be the most expensive college conference network as the Big Ten Network costs $1 within the conference borders from Nebraska to New Jersey.

The two biggest cable providers which would carry the SEC Network, Comcast and Time Warner Cable are likely to balk at paying the $1.30 pricetag, however, ESPN is depending on a rabid fanbase to put pressure on the providers to carry the channel.
THE SEC NETWORK IS GOING TO COST A LOT OF MONEY

Who knows which Satellite systems will carry it? Dish was unable to carry CBS for the first half of 2013 because of argument over prices.

Comcast, Time Warner Cable Deal Is A Disaster For Customers

Quote:
They say two wrongs don't make a right, and consumers are about to get proof of that with the merger of Comcast and Time Warner Cable.
The $45 billion merger announced Thursday might be a win for both companies, but it will be no victory for their combined 30 million customers, who are already among the least-happy customers in all of Corporate America.
The two companies last year were the lowest-scoring cable companies in the American Customer Satisfaction Index, mainly because of the weakness of their customer service. That made them the least-loved companies in one of the least-loved industries for customer satisfaction. The only two industries with worse customer-satisfaction ratings, according to Consumerist, are newspapers and internet providers. By the way, Comcast and Time Warner Cable are also internet providers.
Little wonder, then, that the two companies were near the top of Consumerist's Worst Company In America contest last year, based on unscientific online polling. Comcast, which took home the title of Worst Company in 2010, reached the Final Four in 2013, after beating Time Warner Cable in the Elite Eight.
The companies, naturally, are putting the best face on the merger.
“The combination of Time Warner Cable and Comcast creates an exciting opportunity for our company, for our customers, and for our shareholders,” Comcast CEO Brian Roberts said in a press release. The company did not immediately respond to a request for further comment.

I've had dealing with Brighthouse who is owned by TWC and their customer service has always been excellent. TW on the other hand have been pretty lousy. It's difficult to even get to talk to someone.

When I moved from SC to MS I had TW and had a few complaints but TW sold the Jackson tri county area to Comcast/Xfinity, then the crap began. The one suggestion I can make is write down this number because you will need it. 215-665-1700 corporate office in Philly. Ask for VP of customer service, you won't get him/her but you will get help from their executive customer service folks. Write everything down, keep notes and e-mails too. Remember these guys do not care. period!

Over the last 3 years I have had 13 different DVR/HD boxes, they repair all equipment and recycle. Good luck

One more thing you will now get a load of a NBC programming shoved down your throat as well as Universal stuff, they own both. One of the reasons Leno's gone.
