Time Warner Sends Ohio Man $16 Million Cable Bill

Daniel DeVirgilio of Beavercreek, Ohio was understandably shocked last week when he received a letter from Time Warner Cable. DeVirgilio, a 26-year-old engineer, had apparently failed to pay his cable bill, and owed the provider a chunk of cash -- $16.4 million, to be exact. Turns out, the company made what it's calling a "human error" in calculating DeVirgilio's bill. An employee reportedly...

Cable Companies to Loyal Customers: Pay Us More

Despite a weak economy and more online options for viewers, satellite and cable operators will, once again, increase their prices in 2011. According to The Hollywood Reporter, analyst Craig Moffett predicts that most of the average price increases will be in the mid-to-low single-digit percentages.

Time Warner to Charge Fees for Internet Based On 'Consumption'

No, folks -- this is no prank. Time Warner Cable really is throwing caution (and public opinion) to the wind and moving forward with its evil consumption-based internet billing. If you'll recall, we heard that the operator was trialing the method -- which imposes premium rates on big broadband users -- back in early 2008, but now it seems it's quietly hoping to roll it out into more major markets....

Cable Companies Considering Subscription Based Online Video

As of now, there are tons of ways to enjoy online TV for free, or at least incredibly cheaply. YouTube, Joost, TV.com and of course the perennial favorite Hulu all offer full-length TV shows and clips for free. The networks made the move to these sites in hopes of stemming the growing popularity of pirated videos. Cable channels, however, have been less eager to share their property online....

Yahoo and AOL Suddenly Close to Merging?

Yahoo's done its best to fend off Microsoft's aggressive advances until now, but it suddenly looks like the struggling company might be getting some help -- both the Wall Street Journal and Reuters are reporting that the Yahoo is "closing in" on a deal to merge with Time Warner's AOL division and partner up with Google on search advertising. Yeah, that's pretty major, and it would probably do...
