CHARTER COMMUNICATIONS, INC. /MO/ filed this Form 425 on 01/22/2016
Entire Document
 


Charter developed a state-of-the-art, cloud-based programming guide that enables OVD content to be accessed along with cable networks for a seamless viewing experience.
New Charter will not block or slow down Internet traffic or engage in paid prioritization-the same commitment already followed by Charter today.
Charter will continue to invest in interconnection capacity to avoid network congestion and offers an industry leading settlement free peering policy.

FACT: Charter is committed to offering diverse and independent programming.
(Myth: New Charter will harm small and independent programmers.)

Charter carries more than 100 minority-focused networks including BET, Bounce TV, TV One, El Ray and Fuse (formerly Nuvo). TV One is carried on our most widely subscribed tier.
Charter offers consumers more Spanish-language programming than any other major provider with approximately 70 channels in our “Latino View” package.
Independent programmers that support New Charter include: TV One, Baby First, RFD-TV, One World Sports, Fuse Media, Ovation, Inspire, AXS TV, The Blaze, Condista, Bounce TV, Crown Media, and Reelz.

FACT: New Charter’s total debt relative to its cash flow is not unusual for the industry and is less than some of its peers.
(Myth: New Charter has taken on too much debt to finance the transaction.)
  
Charter has clearly demonstrated that the best way to grow our company - and to properly service our debt -is to offer superior products at highly competitive prices in order to grow customer relationships and in turn, operating cash flow. 
Over the last several years, Charter has reduced the effective prices of certain core products by eliminating charges such as cable modems rental fees and universal service fees, all while reducing the size of its debt load relative to its operating cash flow.
By deploying the same strategy that we have at Charter, we are confident New Charter will have similar success.

FACT: Charter has significantly increased its customer care capacity by bringing overseas call centers back home and insourcing field technician operations.
(Myth: New Charter will make cuts in customer service.)

Since 2012, Charter has added over 7,000 jobs, the majority in customer care.
Charter’s insourced workforce is better trained, properly incentivized and better equipped to deliver high-quality service for our customers.
New Charter will create as many as 20,000 new American jobs by returning Time Warner Cable call center jobs to the U.S. and hiring and training thousands of new employees for its customer care operations.
