I hate TWC as much as the next guy...but they don't charge you a penny to swap out a broken remote. I've done it several times...they actually keep them right at the front door so you don't even need to take a number and wait.

As far as the reason, it had to do with the "terrestrial loophole." It was basically a screw up in the writing of the law requiring local channels to be shared with other service providers. So because of sloppy wording Verizon got screwed.
