“Cable TV on the Rise Again”

In response to the February 27, 2014 article in the Daily Courier Observer.

Hello Time Warner subscribers we sure must be lucky to have such a considerate cable company. A company that is so giving they are adding on charges for fees they received from networks.

Poor Time Warner had a 40 percent increase in the broadcast fees they had to pay in 2013. Poor Time Warner had a billion dollar profit in 2013.

Time Warner is giving customers an increase in internet fees, what does the internet have to do with network fees. Time Warner is giving customers a converter box rental fee increase, oh yeah customers are also getting a $2.25 broadcast fee.

Some 70 percent of Time Warner’s customers have been given promotional deals. Wait until the gift of promotion ends!

Time Warner is giving their customers more on demand shows and movies, that is for a fee.

Last but not least Time Warner continues to make investments to give its customers reliable service. Talk to your neighbors about Time Warner’s gift of reliability in TV reception and internet service. Talk to those customers who wait from noon till 5 p.m. for a cable technician.

Boy! Time Warner subscribers just can’t wait for a Comcast merger, just think how giving that merger will be.

A satirical gift by yours truly,

James Oliver Ryan
