Insight folds into Time Warner Cable


MVPD giant Time Warner Cable has added 760K subscribers in three states via its acquisition of Insight Communications. Given the triple-play offerings of MVPDs, the subscriber base accounts for a total of 1.5M subscriptions for either video, internet or voice service.

The acquired cable systems are in Evansville, Indiana; Louisville, Covington, Lexington, and Bowling Green, all in Kentucky; and Columbus, Ohio.

TWC Chairman and CEO Glenn Britt said,  “With this acquisition, we have expanded in areas that fit well with our Midwest operations at an attractive price. We are excited to begin building on Insight’s successes and serving our new customers. Today we are pleased to welcome new customers, new employees and new communities to Time Warner Cable.”

670K of the 760K subscribers receive video service, 550K get high-speed data and 290K have voice service.
