Time Warner Cable Apologizes, Says They Will Support TiVo Series 3

Remember when Time Warner Cable in the Raleigh area said they wouldn't support TiVo Series3 units with CableCARDs? Well, it looks like they've gone back on that decision and told one of their subscribers that they will in fact support Series 3 and any other CableCARD capable devices.

...once the tivo series 3 device are released we will be able to install a CableCARD for those devices as well as any other CableLabs certified devices...

Were they going to support it all along, or was this little bit of media exposure enough to send them back to the meeting rooms and switch their policy? We'll never know, but TWC customers should be glad that they'll get to TiVo the upcoming season of Nip/Tuck in HD after all.
