BRIEF: Time Warner Cable to raise rates
Jan 14, 2013 (Erie Times-News - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) --
Some Time Warner Cable customers will be paying more to watch television starting in February.
The New York City-based cable provider is increasing the price of its cable TV packages for customers who don't bundle their cable with Internet or phone service, said Time Warner spokesman Travis Reynolds.
Time Warner serves 15.3 million subscribers, including almost 1 million in Western Pennsylvania and Northeastern Ohio.
"Our average video rate increases 4 percent," Reynolds said. "But 82 percent of our customers are in bundled packages and their rates aren't increasing."
The monthly bill for subscribers who have the company's Standard package will increase from $73.99 to $75.99. DVR service will also increase to $12.99 a month and the Sports Pass tier will rise to $8.99 a month.
