    I like it. It's much faster. Their UI runs circles around TWC shit boxes (the main reason I jumped).

    I think the DVR functions need to be easier to get to, and I'd like to turn off the energy saver message when you first turn it on. Besides that, it's a nice upgrade to the old package.

    Was able to pull up a local radar on the weather channel, that seemed new.

    she does, she got the bundle and the phone has fucked up a few times. But all in all she's happy. Anything but cable wins
