The article focuses on the adverse reaction of cable television networks to the decision of Time Warner Cable to introduce a $99 triple play of television, Internet and voice services in New York City. According to Time corporate spokesman Mark Harrad, there are no plans to expand the service into other markets. Customers can receive 150 digital cable channels and high-speed Internet access through the service. Such move will affect the revenue of the networks if emulated by other operators.
