Nowadays there are resources to empower people to do almost all repairs, installations, etc. in their homes on their own. If you want to install a ceiling fan there are books that teach you how. If you bought a new gas dryer and want to save money by installing it yourself you can find instructions online.
It only makes sense then that you should be able to install your home phone, digital cable box and internet modem from Time Warner Cable – and you can. Take note, you must be already be a Time Warner Cable customer to self-install any new or upgraded service. There are two options to get a self-installation kit, complete with all the equipment and instructions you’ll need.
First, you can pick up a kit at your local cable store or front counter, or you can call Time Warner Cable’s customer support and request that one be mailed to you.
Why is self-installing services a good idea? For starters, it saves you money on the installation cost you’d otherwise have to pay if a professional technician from Time Warner Cable were to come to your home or apartment and install it.
It is also earth-friendly by not having a TWC truck drive to you. Last but certainly not least, it saves you time. You are free to get the self-install kit in the manner that suits you and you don’t have to wait for an appointment that interrupts a few hours of your life to set the services up. Win, win, win!
If you’d like to take a quick look at what’s involved in installing any of Time Warner Cable’s services, or you’d like to download any of the installation instructions, visit the Equipment Instruction Manuals online.
Still have some fears or trepidation about installing your own equipment? If you’re worried that it’ll be too complicated because along with your digital box you need to hook up a DVD player, stereo system, or gaming system, don’t worry, there are instructions for that as well.
If all else fails and you do need help with any of your installs Time Warner Cable has a dedicated customer care and online support teams that are just a call or click away.
In the immortal words of the 1998 classic film Waterboy, (starring Adam Sandler, whom I think is one of the funniest actors alive) “You can do it!” Or, if you need another cheesy catch phrase to get you motivated, Time Warner Cable is “The Power of You.”
