Charlotte, North Carolina (August 7, 2012) – Time Warner Cable today introduced AutoHD to customers in North and South Carolina using high definition-capable set-top boxes.  The new feature, which is automatically activated on Time Warner Cable HD set-top boxes, will tune the HD signal of many popular channels, even when the standard-definition channel number is selected.
