Time Warner Cable Stencils the Bowery

Posted on: December 9th, 2010 at 6:18 am by

Time Warner Cable is goin’ street with a new sidewalk stencil marketing push on the Bowery.  Perhaps they should focus instead on fixing the myriad signal strength issues that constantly plague their customer base.

We spotted sidewalk markings along much of the Bowery down to Delancey.  The stencil stunt is actually to promote an invite-only Time Warner Cable event tonight at 54 Bond Street.  Apparently the cable provider is throwing a party to launch its high end “Signature Home” bundle.  Priced at an eye-popping $189.95 per month, subscribers will have greater HD channel selection, 1 TB of storage, unlimited VoIP, and 50 mbps connection speed.  Oh, and a cable guy who shows up on time!

Here is the event description, per Guest of a Guest:

From Personal Solutions Advisors and Connections Specialists to Whole House DVR and TWC’s exclusive Look Back feature, Time Warner Cable will utilize each room of the townhouse to bring to life the signature service and solutions that will enhance customers’ connectivity and in-home entertainment experience, while demonstrating the connection between the cable provider and the content customers value most. Time Warner Cable will introduce the Limited-Edition Signature T through Brooklyn Denim, with proceeds going to the non-profit Pop!
