Release Date: 03/13/2007

Time Warner Cable will play a critical communications role when ABC’s Extreme Home Makeover rolls into Kansas City to build a home for the Jesus Jacobo family beginning March 12. Time Warner Cable will provide cable and Road Runner high speed Internet service to the construction trailer as well as installing Digital Phone, Internet and cable TV service in the new home. Time Warner Cable will donate one year’s services to the Jacobo family and will send an expert to review parental controls and Internet safety after the Extreme Home Makeover cameras leave town.

“This is the second time we have been involved in supporting an Extreme Home Makeover project,” said Damon Porter, Time Warner Cable-Kansas City Director of Public Affairs. “It’s our honor to provide the construction crew with cable and high speed Internet service and to join the community in its efforts to help the Jacobo family. We look forward to meeting with the family to personally review parental controls and Internet safety as well as to providing them with phone, Internet and video service for the next year.”

 Time Warner Cable will send a crew to connect the construction trailer at the beginning of the week of March 12. On Saturday, March 17, they will install cable in the newly constructed home at 4132 N. Spruce Ave.
