Time Warner Scrambled
The face of the new time warner, this is NBC digital.
I'm not sure if this is all over LA but it starts here in the East Valley next month.
They have already turned off all the local digital channels.
No matter how much you paid for that state of the art tv, it is useless now unless you have a de-scrambler box.
On July 29th, analog channels will disappear from TW cable and all channels will be scrambled. Yes, the FREE channels are gone.
You have to get a de-scrambler box for every tv and you have to activate them all.
There is no fee for the box and no monthly charge until 1-1-16, than it's $1.50 each box.......
I have called and complained to no avail but I did order 3 boxes figuring I have 18 months to figure out what service I will switch to.
The lady asked me..how many tv's do you have..I said it's none of your business....she said....it is now.
There was an article in the LA Times about the 4 nuclear power stations that run 24/7 just to keep all the tv boxes running just in the US.
Here's a TW forum that sucks too: Time Warner Cable NYC - Free OTA Channels now Scrambled - Time Warner Cable | DSLReports Forums
So now I'm looking for options, if I get a dish do I need a box for each tv......

Thanks for the heads up, I had received the propaganda from them but it was confusing.

Verizon FIOS. Dumped TWC many, many moons ago. Too difficult to deal with

Emprie, quick question? Did you ditch cable? Because reading the fourm you linked to it seems like all the people this is effecting are people who cut cable (ie no BASIC cable (1-70) and no digtal cable)
