Residential video net declines of 38,000

NEW YORK — Time Warner Cable Inc. (NYSE:TWC) today reported financial results for its fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2014.

Residential video revenue decreased primarily due to a year-over-year decline in video subscribers, partially offset by an increase in average revenue per subscriber. The increase in average revenue per subscriber was primarily the result of price increases and higher premium network revenue (which, for the full year of 2013, was reduced by approximately $15 million of subscriber credits issued in the third quarter in connection with a temporary blackout of Showtime resulting from a dispute with CBS), partially offset by lower transactional video-on-demand revenue.
