MUMBAI: Time Warner Cable is trying out a traditional
solution to its longstanding CBS blackout problem. The
cable operator has started offering free television
antennas to help its customers continue watching their
favorite CBS shows via broadcast signals. The offer
is particularly effective in major cities including
Los Angeles, Dallas, and New York.
The cable company notified its customers in affected
areas about its latest offer that would serve as a temporary
solution to the CBS blackout. It has posted the message
on its Website and has sent communication through email.
Time Warner Cable is giving away basic indoor antennas
to its subscribers. The tool could be claimed at any
Time Warner Cable store. It is also offering a $20 voucher
to each customer who prefers to purchase TV antennas
at any Best Buy location.
