Charter Disconnects Some Former TWC Subscribers Mid-Day, Demands More Money

One customer the Herald-Leader featured was in the middle of watching a show when suddenly his screen went dark. He picked up his remote and changed the channel to find that several other channels from his lineup were also suddenly missing, replaced with a message that said they were no longer a part of his package. […] When he reached a representative, they told him that he wasn’t paying enough for the standard cable package, anymore. If he wanted his channels back, he’d have to start paying $139 every month instead of $103 — an increase of nearly 35%. Oh and P.S., he’d need to pay $24 for a tech to come out and replace his cable box[.] – Kate Cox, Consumerist
