Thousands lose SPEED Channel on Time Warner Cable

In typical Saturday fashion, I tuned to SPEED channel to watch the Camping World Truck Series race from Martinsville, only to be confronted with the following message;

“SPEED CHANNEL is now available on this channel number in Digital Format using a Digital Converter or through two way capable digital cable ready equipment such as a Cable Card with a Tuning Adapter. Call 1-800-955-0750 for more information on how to receive this channel.“

RAMJET, Do you have a digital converter box?  If "YES" you won't be affected. If "NO" then maybe Time Warner is just slinging fertilizer.

Respectfully, I'm so sick of TW it ain't funny. I literally watch 5 channels en total out of their 1000 channel universe...and that is less than 4 hrs a day when I do, yet they whack me major $$$ for nothin.

I had a subscription where I had all the movie channels...so I called and asked to drop them to save money. Guess what? I WOUND UP PAYING MORE FOR LESS!

So, SpeedTv should start streaming their own content and charge accordingly, and then we can DUMP TW for good.

Well I turned in two boxes and the remotes on Thursday to Time Warner. I have been researching the Internet for the last few mo. and I have found every channel that I ever watched on cable on the Internet including SPEED. I can now watch hundreds of channels and all I have to pay for my Internet. Yes, I have to pay Time Warner for my Road Runner but I get everything else for FREE. If anyone is interest in how to do this ? Just call me and I'll walk ya through it. 607-327-1493 This may not work if you have dial up. Sorry. I guess could post all the web addresses for the channels if anyone wants them ?

Time-Warner had my cable bill up to $80 - no movie or premium channels, no SPEED-TV.  Sent with DirectTV though Verizon.

3 TV's hooked up - About $110 with tax per month for TV, Internet (DSL), and Phone with no long distance charges.

After two years, my deal will go up about $20 per month - total bill will still be considerably less than Time Warner, internet and phone was before Verizon.

If you know someone that has DirtectTV, sign up and indicate their account number, and you BOTH will receive $100.

Pick me, pick me!

Here's a tip...I use Justin.TV for just about anything I want. With college BB done on monday, Time Warner is DONE for me on Tuesday.

I've been watching the NCAA march madness FREE over internet...HD right from NCAA.com . Down with TW! >:(
