|I just cancelled my broadcast TWC service due to these stupid boxes they are going to for basic cable / broadcast stations service. |
When I told the customer service rep that I was going over-the-air antenna, he told me that "antennas won't work in a few months, either, they are going digital, too." I challenged that -- standard TV service was ended in 2009, making digital TV the only over-the-air option in the US (save for a very few low power stations) -- and told him I work at a local Charlotte NC TV station, and he then added that is what his supervisors are telling the reps to tell canceling basic cable customers.
So they are lying to customers, spreading FUD to antenna cord-cutters. TWC: GRRRRRR!
This was the Gastonia Union rd TWC office
Astoria, New York
|Finally had to leave TWC for RCN. Called the number for the office of the president and emailed them as well. Got in contact with the top level customer reps. They were at a loss as to why I was constantly having On demand issues with sound dropping out and selecting a show I want to watch and being taken to something totally different. See here: |
Wow! Just wow!
Many, many visits from techs, many cable boxes replaced and still no resolution. In addition to the on demand issue above, I had numerous problems with the cable box crashing as I changed channels. Random "black screens of death" as I watched a show forcing me to unplug the box and plug it back in. The reboot time was always quite long. And don't get me started on the semi weekly internet outages. It was a regular occurrence. Sometimes lasting most of the day.
Several days after leaving, I got a call from TWC sales division asking me to come back as they could likely get me back for a better rate and send a senior tech to do the install so they can make sure all is well. I explained to them why I left and this is what they were promising me as there were a great number of technical issues. They once again stated a senior tech and or manager would be present for the install. Then they tried to sell my on the triple play, I refused. Then they gave me back the package I had, claiming it would be the same price but they gave me two different quotes in the same conversation and the sales rep became elusive.
Well, something didn't sound right about all of this. So I called the office of the president and spoke to reps there. It turns out the rep blatantly lied to me. Yes they did assemble my old package back but at a much higher price. Even worse, president's office rep said there's no such thing as sending out a senior tech to install and communicate with the headend to make sure the last issues I was experiencing were solved. She couldn't understand why they would say such things. I'd have to get it installed, replicate the problem and begin the cycle of endless tech visits once more.
TWC WAS TRYING to get me back by any means necessary even if it meant making things up to win me back. And there is the problem with TWC. It comes off as very dishonest and borderline criminal.
Needless to say, I didn't take them up on their offer to come back. But should I decide to again one day, the rep at the presidents office instructed metro call her directly. So I may be in good hands should I make a switch back down the road. )
|there is no sound on channel 44 nbcsn since 4/7/15. All others have sound. ) |
|I switched a year ago and huge mistake. Please wait screens, poorly designed user interface are mild irritants compared to watching a recorded show in progress delete itself after it finished the recording. I now get to wait 4 days to finish it on demand IF it is one of the episodes available since often On Demand skips episodes. The Internet is SLOW and creates authentication errors and needs to be rebooted constantly. The guide does not respond to remote I put or you do not believe so and hit the button again only to find yourself on screens or watching a show you did not choose. I am done. Costco and Direct TV here I come but will be getting a different Internet provider as well. |
|email i just sent to Twc.Cotp@twcable.com|
let's see what happens
have had a problem with cable for several years,
i have had several boxes and multiple repairs.
the final solution, i was told on 3/17/15 and today, by ms rickenbocker, that the only way for repair to be done was for a repair person to come when the problem shows itself.
never mind that in all the times (except one phone call on 2/27/15 where the person at TW could see the problems herself, on her screen) has a repair person arrived during a problem.
this is the way TW says "f==k you, i sit at a job and my job is to inconvenience until you are frustrated enough to go away."
i will be happy to supply you with dates and information but i can no longer listen to some hostile TW employee who's solution to my ongoing problem is to stay home for appointments so the repair person can witness the problem, a 1,000 to 1 chance it will happen. that's not time i want to spend.
|If you want real Results. Call the office of the president and ask for Lonney Krentz the department manager or Paula Takach. Don't take NO for an answer! (212)364-8300 option #2 or Email them at Twc.Cotp@twcable.com. Trust me complain loud enough and you will get results! If that doesn't work call and Email the CEO Rob.Marcus@Twcable.com or call him at 212 364 8219 that always gets results! |
|I HOPE YOU READ THIS BEFORE GETTING TWC. I've been trying unsuccessfully to cancel service since Feb 2014. I bought a house and moved. I called to cancel service upon buying the house and moving yet they are stating I have a modem that I don't have that the really bad installer took with him since I have my own. I'm a web professional! They insist I owe them for thir box yet I wasn't billed ever (3 years!) while supposedly still having it. Why wouldn't they bill me monthly if I actually had their modem? There's the proof! They hit my account again too so I'm setting a fraud claim against them through my bank and tomorrow I'm writing a complaint to the FCC. Next is Small Claims Court Unless this site gets smart and gets a class action going. Legal action seems necessary to quit your account. I can't wait until they tank and go out of business. |
|I haveto call every other month for either router or cable box all they know to do is replace it instead of checkin there wire connections .ud think new box new wires but no .|
Tonight called cause 1 channel recording dont play nxt day. But r fine day of this every week thing said was box reboot
Still didnt fix the issue. )
|Switched from DirecTV to TWC to save few bucks. Bad idea. Their DVR (Cisco) sucks! Total POS! Fails |
to record shows and guide not available. I've reset this box more times in the past three months
then I did my DTV DVR in five years. Total junk and they can shove it up their CEO's ass. I'm done.
sad in san diego
|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.
|TIME WARNER BUSINESS CLASS-UNABLE TO DISCONNECT SERVICE BECAUSE TECHS. CANCELL THE SERVICE CALL MONTHLY. RETURNED THE MODEM MYSELF. CALLING MONTHLY TO LISTEN TO THE NEXT SONG AND DANCE, WHILE THE BILL ACCRUES... MY HUSBAND THINKS IM GOING TO HAVE TO HIRE A LAWYER TO RESOLVE IT. AND WE DON,T OWN OWN THE PROPERTY ANY LONGER, AND WERE TOLD YEARS AGO THAT ANY MODEM, OR EQUIPMENT MORE THAN 2 YEARS OLD IS NOT WORTH RECOVERING. IT'S JUST ALL A GAME TO SEE IF YOU WILL PAY. ) |
