TWC Apologizes For Botched 1-Cent-Movie Weekend, Offers Coupons

Gadgetress reports that if you live in the SoCal area where Time Warner Cable‘s penny movie sale was occurring this weekend, and you couldn’t actually watch any of the movies you rented, you can call 1-888-TWCABLE visit and request a coupon good for one 1-cent-movie-on-demand. Their spokesperson says:

We totally exceeded the number by 3-times the amount. It was hugely successful. But a lot of people used it at peak times, which overloaded the system. For any inconvenience we caused for customers, we do apologize.
