Time Warner Cable Raises Rates After NY Approves Merger

Just two weeks after state regulators in New York signed off on the pending $55 billion merger of Time Warner Cable and Charter Communications, the company announced price hikes across the board for most of its services.

Time Warner’s standard TV package will increase from $76.99 a month to $78.99 a month. The TWC Sports Pass, a premium sports tier that is added on, is rising from $8.99 a month to $10 a month. There are also new prices for the company’s basic and standard Internet services, which will now be $49.99 a month and $59.99 a month, although it is unclear what the current prices are for those offerings. The cost of a Digital HD, DVR or HD DVR set top box and remote is rising from $6.98 a month to $8.50 a month.
