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!

Time Warner Cable will introduce the Limited-Edition Signature T through Brooklyn Denim, with proceeds going to the non-profit Pop!
