Time Warner Cable Reviewing Its Newest Acquisition: Insight Communications

Phillip Dampier March 8, 2012 Consumer News, Insight, Time Warner Cable, Video No Comments

Time Warner Cable has begun a review of operations at its latest completed acquisition, Insight Communications, as it begins to transition customers away from the Insight brand towards Time Warner Cable.

Insight’s customers in Kentucky, Ohio, and Indiana won’t see changes immediately.  Time Warner says it will be “business as usual” as the company begins to manage its newest service areas.  Time Warner Cable spokesperson Mary Jo Green said the company plans no immediate channel or price changes, but some Insight subscribers are worried about the long term fate of the NFL Network, which has been a part of Insight’s cable lineup but has not been carried by any Time Warner Cable systems.

Time Warner says its engineering staff will be examining the current state of Insight’s infrastructure — a key factor in determining what services already familiar to Time Warner customers can be extended to Insight customers.  Most of them involve the cable television operation.  Features like “Look Back” and “Start Over” have not been available on Insight’s cable systems.  Insight broadband offers tiers of 10, 20, 30, and 50Mbps — same as Time Warner.  The phone service is similar as well.

Kentucky will become one of Time Warner’s largest service areas as the company absorbs Insight.  Time Warner and Insight traditionally operated as neighbors in different parts of the state. Insight served most of the city of Henderson while Time Warner Cable covered most of Henderson’s suburbs.

Time Warner Cable’s acquisition of Insight adds more than 760,000 customers, including 550,000 broadband, 670,000 cable, and 290,000 phone subscribers across three states.
