Adapters free until November
TVs without converter boxes, CableCARDs or QAM tuners will need a special adapter. The adapters, which can be requested online at twc.com/digitaladapter starting Thursday, will be free through Nov. 30, according to Time Warner Cable’s letter. After that, each one will cost 99 cents per month.
The seven channels switching to digital-only format will continue to be part of existing cable packages, the cable provider said. Time Warner Cable customers can request a digital adapter at twc. com/digitaladapter beginning Thursday.
