Time Warner Cable Takes California

Today, Time Warner Cable starts integrating and consolidating the California cable holdings it aquired from Comcast and Adelphia. If all goes according to plan, this will never happen again:

    “Sharon Levy saw a cooking show about pizza recently and figured her mother would like to watch too. So she picked up the phone and told her mom to tune in to the Food Network.

    But the two missed the segment because they spent so much time figuring out which channel on Levy’s cable system in Sherman Oaks corresponded to her mother’s in Hancock Park.

    “She would say, ‘Where’s the Food channel?’ And I’d say 55,” Levy said. “But Channel 55 on her system is the History Channel. So we’d go through all the numbers until we found it.”

Brace yourselves.
