Really?......when would you need a box in each room? For premium channels? Only for DVR? Here in NY you need a box at each TV - no matter what service. That is great info.....Thanks!

We used Dish Network in Concord, and the only thing we did not like about it was having to have a box for every tv we wanted. It was not so bad in the living room but it was cumbersome in the bedrooms, especially my toddler's room (I had a tv in there because I spent a lot of time in there with her and *I* wanted something to watch). Well, the customer service was irritating if you needed something.

But it was cheaper than cable and we had better reception. Overall it was ok, and now we are in an area (not Time Warner territory) where the cable is atrocious on our street and isn't going to be fixed any time soon, so for us we will be going back to Dish.

OK....I just called Time Warner and answered my own question. I think that it is great that you don't need a box in each room! (little things make me happy!) Now I have another question.......how hard do they hit you with taxes and fees on top of that bundle package of $124.85?
Thanks!

You can probably expect to pay about $135!

We have TW Cable and have never ever had an issue and have very clear reception!

TWC is working great for me...don't need boxes in every room... HD, DVR is $49.95 a month for the first year - hard to beat that!

TWC. You get HD cable, High Speed Internet and unlimited nationwide phone service.

You can't get that with DirecTV unless you have a partner phone company with DSL service.

I don't know of any places in the area with AT&T U-Verse yet. Yet, Verizon has FiOS TV and Internet at my beach house in the tiny city of North Myrtle beach, sc for some reason.

TWC has News Carolina 14, their 24 hour local news channel, the Government Channel, which broadcasts Charlotte City Council and Mecklenburg County Commissioner meetings, and other public affairs programs, and the CMS channel, which has School Board meetings. I wouldn't want to give these up.

There are lots of fees added and they go up every year on those fees, but it is nice to not need to box everywhere. However, you miss the cool features the box brings. You guys got me interested in the FiOs, and since Verizon covers Monroe, I called and that service is not available yet for Monroe/UC. I am sticking with TWC for now.
