Why can’t Time Warner and Comcast be offered to all areas of Pender County?

Mike Voorheis


In theory, either (or both) companies could extend cable television to any section of Pender County.

However, that’s not economically sound, said Keith Poston, director of communications for Time Warner Cable.

Poston said Time Warner bases expansion on a model that relies partially on population density. Essentially, if the cable companies can make get a return on investment for expanding the cable grid, they will do so.


Is there a government body that regulates or oversees cable companies?

Now that all regular TV stations are broadcasting in HD, why doesn’t cable TV move the HD versions down to the low end of the cable line-up?
