Tell us about your Time Warner Cable problems.

After years of incompetent and horrible customer service from Time Warner Cable Company, it's time the public had a forum. There's a lot of commentary about Time Warner Cable on the internet, but we felt it should all be consolidated in one place.

Editor's Note: This website was established in 2009 as timewarneraustinsucks.com. Due to the overwhelming number of complaints against Time Warner, the site was renamed timewarnercableproblems.com in order to serve all of Time Warner's victims, wherever they may be.

Have two cable boxes. Both of them freeze every day or two and must be unplugged and plugged back in (note that they are completely different boxes) The guide many times won't display more than one day out. On Demand only works about 25% of the time. Audio is weird and voices get very low during commercials and also on some music shows. Audio and video are constantly out of sync by as much as 1/2 second. It's like watching a poorly dubbed Japanese monster movie. Sometimes the video will just go black and a "Please Wait" message appears for 1 or 2 minutes. The guide they have online is never correct and when you try and view the current day, it actually shows tomorrow's listings. Intermittently, when you press buttons on the remote, the box takes a few seconds to respond making it almost impossible to navigate through the guide or On-Demand. What a nightmare and disaster.
Time Warner is garbage. They need to deregulate it like they did with phone service so alternate providers can use their wiring to provide service. No competition equals junk service.    respond to this post   Post a Solution

last night I watched Fox News channel and this morning it's not even in the channel line up! I'm in Dallas and I'm so sick of all these TW problems! It's random one day the OnDemand won't work and the next time I turn this system on channels are missing, remotes don't work or the DVR recorder needs to be changed out!
This is crazy! I've gone thru 4 new remotes and two tech visits and another complete cable box change out!
How does this company get away with this? And all for the low price of $185.00 a month! I have been a customer for seven months and I'm ready to pull the plug.....They do whatever they want and get more $$$ out of customers!    respond to this post   (1 response - view)   Post a Solution

2-3-15 (Milwaukee) We have had problems with HD pixelation with our Time Warner cable service for years. Seems like the worst is with HD channels 1004, 1005 & 1006. These are local channels. Also seems like the problem is usually worse when those channels broadcast local programs -- like news & Packer games. Although problems occur other than that also. Occasionally when we notice some pixelation while watching TV and receive a phone call (we have Time Warner phone service also) the pixelation increases 1000 fold making it impossible to watch the channel at all until you hang up phone. Time Warner has been here 4 or more times since September (2 times in the past 30 days) and has NOT solved the problem. When they leave (and when they arrive) usually the problem is not occuring. We have 2 of their boxes and the problems occur on both. Their service people are always curteous and appear knowledgable but the problem always reoccurs within days of their visit.    respond to this post   (1 response - view)   Post a Solution

We were a long time customer of Time Warner. I will not go into all the details of all of the terrible service we received, but to summarize I will say we had multiple issues with our internet service that no matter what Time Warner said the problem was and no matter what they said would solve the problem, it was never resolved. When we finally parted ways with Time Warner we were having to reset our Time Warner-issued modem 10 times or more a day.

That, however, is not why we left. We left because they were over-charging our credit card on a monthly basis even after we'd worked out a package with them and agreed to a price. When we informed Time Warner of the error they refused to refund the money they took from our credit card, saying they'd give us credits over a 3 month time period. We are talking almost $300 of our money that they took from our account that we had to pay to our credit card--money we didn't have to, in essence, pre-pay for services we had not yet received. Every person we spoke to admitted they had over-charged us in error, but all of them said they were not authorized to help us and they refused to let us speak with anyone who could help us. If any other company took unauthorized funds from our credit card and refused to issue a refund it would constitute credit card fraud. Time Warner does not seem to understand that people don't wish to pre-pay for their service and, in fact, can't afford to pre-pay for their service just because they decide to keep money they erroneously charged to one's credit card. If you're a customer who pays your credit card balance in full each month that's an unexpected hit you're going to have to pay. If you're a customer who carries a balance on your credit card, you'll have to pay interest to the credit card company for Time Warner's error, so their offer to credit you over time doesn't actually cover the full amount you're having to pay to your credit card in that circumstance.

My issue has finally been resolved after hours and hours of my time wasted by Time Warner customer service agents, all of whom acknowledged they took the money in error and refused to return it. Since I have read many complaints on this site regarding the auto-pay issue, I thought it would be a good idea to tell how I resolved the issue. I filed a complaint with the FTC and the FCC. If you are having trouble with Time Warner over-charging your credit card contact both the FTC and the FCC. If you are just having trouble with their complete inability to provide consistent internet and/or cable service, contact the FCC. The websites are: http://www.ftc.gov/faq/consumer-protection/submit-consumer-complaint-ftc and https://consumercomplaints.fcc.gov/hc/en-us

Filing formal complaints with the FTC and the FCC was the only way I was able to get my issue resolved. One of the people I spoke with at the FCC said that this was the sort of thing they needed to know and that they hoped people would file formal complaints in this sort of situation. I'm not usually one to file formal complaints, but enough was enough. After Time Warner received my complaint from the government, they finally refunded the money.

And finally, if you are on auto-pay with Time Warner, I strongly suggest you get off auto-pay immediately.    respond to this post   Post a Solution

I watch a lot of Youtube. Currently TWC will not let me connect to youtube, gives me the cannot "connect to server" message. Strange, my phone can access youtube; My friends with Windstream can access youtube right now. I checked and found that there is no reported youtube server outages. I know it's TWC throttling the service.    respond to this post   (2 responses - view)   Post a Solution

Fed up with bullshit business practices!!! Time Warner came and hooked up service at our resistance in December 2014. In the process of doing so the tech blew up our child's flat screen television. Admitting doing so he was apologetic about the situation. After leaving we noticed that we only had volume on half of the channels on the second television. After several weeks of phone calls trying to get this issue resolved, we have yet to get a callback from the company. Apparently they are too"busy" to address this issue but somehow they found the time to send us several bills in a 2 month span. I would ABSOLUTELY NOT recommend using Time Warner cable company unless you enjoy nonstop aggravation!!!!!! Our next step is to post this on ALL SOCIAL MEDIA NETWORKS!!! This is clearly a company that does NOT put their customers first!!! I think they need to sit back and remember who built your company.. Without your customers you would be non-existent!!!!!! WAKE UP TIME WARNER!!!!!!!!!    respond to this post   (1 response - view)   Post a Solution

I am going to report this company to the attorney general's office as well as the FCC. I have terminated my services and they are holding a charge to my account stating that they are waiting to port my phone services to another company. I have notified them that I am not transferring my phone to another company, however they are holding on to the account thus charging me for services I do not have. They are disregarding the fact that I have stated to them that I have not had phone service for a few days. I refuse to pay for service that I am not receiving. This is indeed fraud.    respond to this post   Post a Solution

Hello all,

I had my internet service installed back in December 2014. Ever since then, I'm constantly getting stuttering issues (including packet data loss). I had originally had my internet setup (with my own modem/wifi router) and the problem was very evident. Usually when playing video games online. I would get about 1-3 second delay while playing games online (IE: Counter Strike) about, every 60 to 90 seconds. I made several complaints with their technical support team. With them being unable to fix the issue, I trusted my gut feeling and returned the modem/router to Micro Center. The first modem/router I bought was on sale "Netgear C3700-100NAS." Was the nicest modem/router I could find and what was nice about it was the fact that I could run both 2.4ghz and 5.0ghz wifi frequencies at the same time! So, I went and swapped it for the "Motorola SBG6580" instead. This modem works great or did for a little while. Maybe an entire day? Later the next day, I was getting packet data loss issues again but, they weren't happening the same way. Then and (still) now, it happens randomly and usually lasts anywhere from 5-10 seconds at a time. I contacted their technical support team the first time and they found the problem to be on their end! Whatever they did, fixed the problem and the internet worked flawlessly for a week! During Christmas vacation, I unplugged the modem/router because I was going out of town for the holidays. After returning, I plugged the modem/router back in and the problems had started all over again! Not before, having issues getting it to communicate with TWC's servers.

I've since then have had to contact their technical support team every day I get home from work to have them fix the issue. Either they do and everything works the rest of the day or, I have to deal with some ignorant moron they hired to tell me that there's nothing wrong with my internet.

I'm very much likely switching to U-Verse. I'm not sure why people are rating U-Verse poorly but, two of my girlfriend's relatives have U-Verse internet and it's far faster and constant than TWC!

You decide!    respond to this post   Post a Solution
