Anyone Work at Time Warner Customer Service?

I now pay $140 for Triple Play. My Manhattan building can't get RCN and dishes are not allowed. What can I say to negotiate a cheaper rate?

In 1989 I lived at 72nd and West End Ave.

Paid 18 bucks a month for cable with a gazillion channels.

Can't remember provider.

Yes - call to disconnect and say you are going to Fios.

Watch all your cable shows on the streaming sites like all the young people are doing. Who fucking pays for cable anymore?

140 is a great deal, don't be so cheap.

$140 is fantastic. I'm paying $225/m to Comcast for their bundle package. I don't even use the damn landline phone either so it's so annoying.

Say you are switching to netflix and will be using clear for your internet making your total 59.99 a month and unless they want to meet or beat that rate you are cancelling.

Go there in person, not over the phone. Three months ago, I went to the Time Warner office on 96th & Broadway. I spoke to a customer retention representative. I asked what he could do to lower my bill. I said I see other advertised specials lower than what I pay. Within minutes he reduced my bill substantially. There was no contract/termination fees either. He offered me Showtime, which I didn't really want but I figured I'd cancel it later, it was still lower than what I was paying. Took less than five minutes, afterwards he said "thank you for staying with Time Warner Cable"

Triple play $89.95 TWO (2) DVR's (service) $5.00 Showtime $7.95

Total $102.94/month + taxes & fees

Ask for retention dept. threaten to go another carrier. My bill dropped $63. You have to have a record of actually paying your bills.

Well, people who have cable Internet services many have no other choice for Internet service.

But to your point about cable TELEVISION service: I wonder what will happen to cable internet bills when everybody drops their cable television service to watch TV over cable Internet? Any guesses?
