Release Date: 08/25/2011

Korpai Family in Hudson Valley Receives Company’s Premium SignatureHome™ Services

New York – Time Warner Cable today announced its total donation of more than $26,000 of services to ABC’s hit series Extreme Makeover: Home Edition’s New York Project as a new home was built in one week from August 18 to 25 for the Korpai family of Crawford, in New York’s Hudson Valley.  The Korpai family received the company’s premium SignatureHome™ services for one year worth $2,400.  During the build, Time Warner Cable also provided the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition production crew and staff members access to Time Warner Cable Internet, video and voice services.  Dozens of Time Warner Cable employees volunteered for the build project with painting, carpentry, tile work and more.

Time Warner Cable’s SignatureHome™ offering delivers the most comprehensive triple play service connecting in-home entertainment, information and technology while providing personalized service, installation and care.  Along with the company’s most robust Digital Cable package, Wideband Internet service and Digital Phone product, the package features conveniences such as Whole House DVR, Remote DVR Manager, Wireless Home Networking for up to 14 devices, and VoiceZone on PC, which allows retrieval of voice messages online.  

“Time Warner Cable is thankful to be a part of this amazing opportunity,” said Bobby Amirshahi, Vice President of Communications in New York City, Time Warner Cable. “We’re happy that we could provide the family with services to help make their entertainment experience in their brand new home simple and easy. Extreme Makeover: Home Edition exemplifies the power of teamwork, community and initiative – a large part of Time Warner Cable’s mission and values.  Our employees were eager and excited to assist in building an amazing home for this deserving family.”

Extreme Makeover: Home Edition built a home to benefit five-year-old Hailey Korpai, who is living with dwarfism, and her family.  As President and Vice President of the New York chapter of Little People of America, Jimmy and Darlene Korpai’s goal is to erase ignorance, increase understanding and give families of little people support and help. The new home will allow Hailey to grow up with access to every aspect of their home – one which allows her the freedom and independence to do everyday things on her own, like brush her teeth, bake, turn off light switches, etc. The Korpai family was whisked away on a Disney Cruise vacation to the Bahamas while the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition had one week to build a brand new home.

Time Warner Cable’s New York City footprint serves over 1.3 million customers in four New York City boroughs (Manhattan, Queens, Staten Island and western Brooklyn), Mt. Vernon, Hudson Valley (Orange, Sullivan, Ulster Counties and parts of Dutchess, Greene and Delaware Counties), and Bergen and Hudson Counties in New Jersey.
