With FiOS HD hittin' hot and heavy
in the Big Apple, TWC is making moves to ensure that it stays at least competitive
with Verizon. The latest channel update for three of the five NYC boroughs includes updates for Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens, with Northern Manhattan getting a special helping. There are far too many additions to cover in this space, so we'll point you to the full notice hosted just after the break. Sorry, south-siders, maybe next time.
