MEDIA: C-SPAN changes to digital signal only 

Time Warner Cable will soon offer the Cable-Satellite Public Affairs Network in a digital format only, which has some customers worried it will cost more to get the programs. But Joli Plucknette-Farmen, Time Warner's regional spokesperson, insists that it won't. | Area customers who have been getting C-SPAN through Time Warner's standard tier or basic package of analog service were notified that beginning on October 10, the company will offer C-SPAN in a digital format only. | C-SPAN will still be part of the standard package, but customers will need a digital adapter. Time Warner will provide the adapters to customers free through December 2014, says Plucknette-Farmen. Adaptors are also available at www.timewarnercable.com/DigitalAdapter. | Time Warner's move to digital is in response to customer demand, says Plucknette-Farmen, and isn't a way to make customers pay more. | Most political junkies don't need an introduction to C-SPAN. The cable and satellite television industry created the network in 1979 as a public service, and its programs — many live and unedited — show how government works and how policies are created.
