Time Warner in San Diego has got to be the worst cable provider ever. No NHL Network, and not a single Center Ice game in HD.
Could not agree more. I was so fed up with them after ten years that I went to U-verse with AT&T. No center ice, but I could just not stand that TWC did not have NHL Network, Prime Ticket, NFL Network, and NFL Redzone. As a bonus they added Comcast Sports California last year (no Sharks games, but lots of the other Bay Area sports news I crave). Do I miss Center Ice? Yes, but getting rid of Time Warner was one of my best consumer choices ever!
When I lived in Ohio I had Time Warner. It had two HD channels, starting with one early last season and adding a second a few weeks later.
I am in Florida now on Bright House -- which is basically like Time Warner, seeing as TWC represents BH in disputes with networks over channel fees and carriage and all that jazz. It looks to be about the same in terms of HD.
If I had the cash, I'd go to Verizon FIOS (which is available in the Tampa Bay area) and see how that works, but with money being tight, my brother and I can't see going to FIOS when we pretty much get everything we want as it is with BH. And in this apartment complex, a dish is not an option.
