Free antennas raining down from Time Warner Cable
- Time Warner Cable (TWC -0.6%) says subscribers in New York, Los Angeles, and Dallas can receive free indoor antennas at TWC retail locations or receive a $20 credit that will be able to be used at Best Buy (BBY +1%) locations.
- The move give the cable operator a little bit of leverage as the NFL season approaches, although stepping over the gridiron Rubicon is still considered an unwise move by media analysts.
