Over the next year in an area-by-area rollout, Time Warner Cable of NY/NJ will launch “Enhanced HDTV” which includes the cable-exclusive Start Over® service for standard and high definition programs.  Start Over® is a service that allows customers to start a program over during its allotted time slot without the need for a DVR.  Customers with HD set-tops will be able to “Start Over” more than 13,000 standard definition and 1,500 HD choices a month with the click of a button at no additional charge.  By augmenting its HD content offerings with Enhanced HD features, Time Warner Cable offers a combination of HD content and features unparalleled by any competing video or internet provider.   Channel locations will be available on our website at the end of this month.  Visit timewarnercable.com/nynj.

“By delivering the most HD choices and Enhanced HD for free to its Digital Cable customers, Time Warner Cable reaffirms our position as the preeminent multimedia provider in New York City,” stated Howard Szarfarc, Executive Vice President for the company’s New York City region.  “The added capacity for HD channels and content didn’t require significant upgrade expenditures or labor costs, and reflects the robust and flexible nature of our existing advanced fiber network.”

“Unlike with DIRECTV®, DISH® and some telecommunications companies which charge extra for these HD services, our customers can watch what they want, when they want, in HD…for free,” added Szarfarc.   Current digital customers can upgrade to an HD set-top at no additional cost.  With the vast majority of our HD channels included free with digital service, Time Warner Cable offers the easiest transition to and best value in HD of any provider today.
