Time Warner Customers Will Soon Need Adapter To Watch ANY TV
Time Warner announced that they will be going all digital, and existing customers will need to pay for an adapter or set-top box to watch ANY TV.
New Yorker's are up in arms over a recent announcement by Time Warner Cable; According to Syracuse.com:
The cable company recently notified customers in the Hudson Valley that it will be going "all digital" starting March 15. It will require customers to use a set-top box or adapter on all of their televisions.
Current Time Warner digital subscribers already have a converter box, but non-digital subscribers can currently access about 70 channels simply by plugging in their cable lines directly to their televisions. However, the non-digital option will be soon be obsolete, and it probably means customers will have to pay more for cable.
Currently, digital subscribers pay an additional $11.75 a month for the converter box, and costs even more if the box includes a digital video recorder. A spokeswoman for the company said that the change will affect Central New Yorkers, but the exact time of the transition is undetermined.
