Time Warner Cable's Los Angeles WiFi Network Grows to 12K Hotspots

In the greater Los Angeles area there are now more than 12,000 wifi hotspots including the Nixon Library, Hollywood Casting & Film, Santa Monica/West LA, Brea, Downtown, San Fernando Valley, Manhattan Beach and the I-10 Corridor.

 

Here’s a pretty cool interactive map that will show you exactly where you can get WiFi access – just enter your address and click “Go.”

 

Also consider downloading the TWC WiFi Finder app for free on Google Play or
.

 

This is all part of a larger venture called “CableWiFi” launched in May 2012 and includes Time Warner Cable, Bright House Networks, Cablevision, Comcast and Cox Communications. You can read the official announcement here .

 

The number of WiFi hotspots is expanding into several additional cities in the future. You’ll see on the map the network has both indoor and outdoor hotspots located in high-traffic locations such as shopping districts, cafés, malls, sports and concert arenas, restaurants, parks and beaches.

Digital Adapters

A digital adapter is a small device that allows digital television signals to be displayed on your analog TV.

Starting on or about 10/8/13 in Los Angeles, 10/15/13 in San Diego and 10/29/13 for Desert Cities, Yucca Valley, Barstow and Banning, CA some designated channels will be delivered in digital format only. This will not affect any TVs currently connected to a digital set-top box. If you want to view these channels on additional direct-connect analog TVs or similar devices request a Digital Adapter.  The quickest and easiest way to order your equipment is online at Go Digital . If you order an Easy Setup Kit, it is directly mailed to your home at no cost. You may also call toll-free 1-855-TWC-DIGITAL (1-855-892-3444) or visit any payment center location to pick up the equipment or arrange for an installation for an additional charge.

On July 31, 2006 Time Warner Cable (TWC) replaced Adelphia and Comcast and serves about 1.9 million subscribers in Los Angeles. This thread merged Adelphia L.A. with TWC L.A. and former Comcast L.A. joined our topic going forward. Adelphia topics remain at the beginning and TWC L.A. posts are at the tail end of this thread.

You might do a search. I know someone from Yorba Linda posted his experiences with it a while ago. I can't remember who it was though. I think they are still doing a lot of testing so it will be hard for anyone to make a good judgement. I just want to hear from someone that can compare it to OTA and D*.

Hi,


There are a couple comments on the So Cal Adelphia tests at hdtvpub.


Also, I talked to a tech rep at Adelphia who informs me that my city, Sierra Madre, and neighboring Arcadia, will be part of a later rollout phase next Spring. So if your towns aren't listed here, look to next Spring to possibly get your HD signals.


It's frustrating that I'm not in the first group as I can only receive NBC and PBS off-air at my location.

Notice how these are the nicer parts of Orange County, but I wouldn't blame them for doing it there.... Most of the upper class probably have HDTV before people with less income. Except for the case of Santa Ana but that is there main office if that means anything. I WANT HD in ANAHEIM!!! They pushed it back from Sept to OCT and I just called so now its Dec-Jan.

Seriously considering taking a look at this new VOOM DBS service

Will you please elaborate on this VOOM DBS service. Right now Adelphia would be my only way to go HD because I just don't have the cash to shell out 500 on a reciever. Also satelite makes you buy the HD reciever plus pay the service fee. I like how Adelphia charges 9.95 and the box is rented

From what I can tell, most of the cities listed aren't even in Orange County. Only three of nine (Santa Ana, Yorba Linda and Villa Park) cities are in OC. I have no clue where Calabassas Park is - and neither does mapquest. But it does make sense that they started rolling out where their main office is and "more affluent" areas first. That's why I bought the crappiest place in a nicer neighborhood
I'm still waiting for them to roll out service in my area and won't buy an HDTV until the service is offered.

I live in Redondo Beach and saw the update to the website this afternoon. When I called, they said that it's not actually available in RB yet, and didn't have an ETA. The original estimate was late October, so I think it's probably still on schedule.

i won't believe it until i actually get confirmation from someone from these "Adelphia HDTV" cities.


even if it's true about adelphia finally rolling out their HD, their lineup is very weak. worse than what you can get for free via OTA. no CBS. instead you get HBO/SHO (if you pay extra).


unless adelphia steps up and brings a lineup card that is on par with comcast, i'll stick w/ D*tv.


i'm in fullerton as well and i was able to get HD OTA reception via Channel Master Stealthtenna. didn't think it would pick it up, but it was a most serendipitous turn of events. i think i'm around 35 miles from mt. wilson.

OTA the only thing u get is CBS, NBC, FOX, ABC AND PBS, right? And does it work where they only broadcast certain shows in HD or is everything in HD?

you are correct in that you only get those channels via OTA, but my point was that's all you get w/ adelphia HD anyways.


only certain primetime shows and some sporting events are broadcast in HD for all of the aforementioned channels, except for PBS, which runs a 24hr HD loop. this is the case whether you have OTA HD, cable HD, dish HD, etc.


it won't be another 3-4 years until everything will be broadcast in HD.....and that's not even 100% at this point.

I know, thats alarming to know just after I bought my Hitachi LCD tv... but still its great but I wish there was a way to get the HD channels I want. I only want the local channels and ESPN HD. Everyone made it as if by 2005 or 2006 there must be HD. To the typical Joe, he doesn't know cable can be broadcasted in analong (please correct me if im wrong). but anyways, I think its a baragin to pay 10 bucks a month to rent the box instead of shelling out 500-600 bucks for the box and get an antenna. Anyone know if they sell HD recievers on ebay?

Of course! They sell everything on Ebay!


You can get Samsung SIR-T150's and T151's for $200-$300, new or used. I bought a used T150, upgraded its firmware, and it works fine fo me.


As for what's available OTA, there's a difference between DTV (digital TV broadcasts) and ED/HDTV (higher resolutions). There are *many* local stations with DTV broadcasts, including all of 2-13, plus several spanish language stations, and both PBS stations (KCET & KOCE). Actual ED content (480p) is available from Fox, HD (720p) from ABC, and HD (1080i) from CBS, NBC, WB, and KCET.


Most of the new fall schedule is now available in some form of ED/HD. See " http://mywebpages.comcast.net/dstarlin/hdtv/Fall.htm "

Good News


Stopped by the local Fullerton office after voting and was able to schedule a set-up for next Tuesday. The girl told me they are not advertising availability in Fullerton yet but they started taking appointments yesterday. They didn't have very much information so I'll just wait in see. I know the HD selection will be pretty sparse for awhile so I'll probably switch to Voom or Superdish in a few months. I have to prove to my wife first that the PQ will be worth the extra $$$.


I will post with my impressions - I have a 50" Sammy DLP but I believe that the box will not be DVI-enabled unfortunately.

If they are taking walk-in appointments in Fullerton then just what exactly was the purpose of the priority installation list? I signed up for priority installation on 3/31/03, and have called numerous times. I would have expected that the list would have been honored, a good customer service oriented company certainly would have, but dealing with Adelphia I should have known better.
