Back in April and early May TWC did the same here in El Paso letting things pass unencrypted over basic cable, only it was the main HBO and SHOWTIME channels with both HD and SD feeds (east and west coast), and then several CINEMAX, STARZ, ENCORE and other minor HBO channels all in SD. It lasted about 4 weeks. Then all but the main HBO and SHOWTIME HD channels disappeared. Once it was down to just HBO and SHOWTIME, I posted about it on the El Paso forum and that night even they disappeared. My suggestion, keep it to yourself. Nothing like getting something for free from someone who regularly shafts you.
I still haven't received anything regarding the upcoming monthly rental fees for the cable modem. I have already had this modem for more than 2 years--so they shouldn't be charging me for something that has already been expensed. The modem I had before that I had for 10 years, without them once saying "Hey, we have a newer modem you can use. Bring that old one in and get a newer one." So now they want to charge me for old equipment just because they are issuing newer equipment to others. Enough of my ranting.
