Wal-Mart to Sell Cable Services

New York City Time Warner Cable announced Tuesday that approximately 700 Wal-Mart stores will sell cable plans under the terms of a deal between Time Warner and Wal-Mart.

A statement issued by both companies said the deal is based largely on the cross-selling opportunities created. “Today's consumer is looking for value and convenience," Time Warner Cable CEO Glenn Britt said in a statement. “This partnership with Wal-Mart provides customers better access to their entertainment and communications needs with just one stop, making our customers' lives even easier."
