Time Warner Cable to increase rates in January 2015

A Time Warner Cable spokesman said there will be a rate increase in January 2015 for customers.

Time Warner customers were notified by letter with their statement, the spokesman said.

Increases include:

  • $2.75-per-month fee for sports programming
  • 50 cent increase to broadcasting TV surcharge
  • $2 increase for Internet modem lease
  • $2 increase for HBO movie channels purchased “a la carte”

The spokesman released the following details about the increase:

  • Many customers are in promotional package pricing and will not see any increase until their promotional period expires.
  • About 30 percent of all TV customers will not see a Broadcast TV Fee increase or the new Sports Programming Surcharge immediately because their TV service is currently part of a promotional package.
  • About 75 percent of TV customers who have Standard TV or above will not be charged the Sports Programming Fee immediately because their TV service is currently part of a promotional package. Broadcast and sports programming costs are by far the biggest drivers of higher TV prices; our fees paid to local broadcast channels have soared 60 percent the past two years alone — and the cost of cable sports networks has increased 91 percent since 2008. The broadcasting TV and sports programming surcharges listed on customer bills represent only a fraction of what we actually pay for broadcast TV and sports content and we think that it’s important to show customers the impact of these rising costs through a specific item on their bills.
  • We’re investing millions of dollars in deploying new modems that support faster speeds and a better Internet experience in all our markets. The modem lease fee helps pay for this equipment as well as the maintenance and service we provide to our modem customers who can have a malfunctioning modem replaced at any time with no extra charge.  Any Time Warner Cable customer who doesn’t want the benefit of these services can avoid the Internet modem lease fee by purchasing their own modem. 
  • Equipment fees include not only the cost of the equipment, but also the operational costs associated with providing this equipment and supporting its use in customer’s homes.
  • Time Warner Cable continually invests in its network, making it possible to add the new content and features customers want and the reliable, dependable service customers deserve.  In the past year, Time Warner Cable has invested more than $345 million in network improvement and reliability across our Carolinas markets.
  • The vast majority of Time Warner Cable customers who subscribe to HBO get that content as part of a package price, and those package prices aren’t changing.  This change only affects customers who get HBO on an a la carte basis.

Staples: Customer data exposed in security breach

Staples Inc. said nearly 1.2 million customer payment cards may have been exposed during a security breach earlier this year.

The office supply retailer said in October that it was looking into a potential credit card breach, adding to a long list of retailers recently hit by cyberattacks.

Staples said Friday that an investigation shows that the criminals used malware that may have allowed access to information for transactions at 115 of its U.S. stores. That includes cardholder names, payment card numbers, expiration dates and card verification codes.

The Framingham, Massachusetts-based company is offering free identity protection services, including credit monitoring, to customers who might be at risk.

The security breach affected different stores at different times between July and September.

Deputies: Someone may be helping wanted Catawba Co. man

Catawba County Sheriff's deputies believe someone may be helping a wanted man hide from authorities.
Deputies and federal agents have been hunting for Jeffrey Dean Tucker since Thursday afternoon, when they said he ran from a deputy attempting to arrest him on a federal warrant for possession of firearm by a felon.

Authorities said the deputy chased Tucker to Tower Road, where he bailed from his car and disappeared into the woods.
"That's two miles from where he grew up, that's all the area with his family friends, and I'm sure he had a plan where he was going at the time," said Capt. Joel Fish.
For hours Thursday, deputies combed the area but with no success.
"The phone rang four different times -- it was the sheriff, warning me not to go out, to keep my doors locked," said Martha Owens, who lives on Tower Road.
By Friday afternoon, deputies ended the active search and now believe Tucker is receiving assistance from a relative or friend.
"I'm sure he's still in the area, he probably got a ride, or he's at somebody's house," Fish said.

Channel 9 dug through Tucker's criminal history and found convictions for assault with a deadly weapon, robbery and DWI.
Authorities are asking anyone who might have seen him to call them.
