Some Los Angeles area customers of Time Warner Cable were experiencing a service interruption that kept them from viewing the Super Bowl today.

Time Warner Cable reported via Twitter that it was working to fix an issue with the KTTV feed that was keeping some of its Los Angeles-area customers from viewing the game.

The interruption ended about 5:50 p.m.

The contest was viewable on the cable carrier's high-definition Fox channel, TWC reported.

Customers from Los Angeles to Ventura County were reporting that the non-HD channel froze during a Volkswagen commercial.

Attempts to contact TWC for comment were not successful.

Back in 2006 when Seattle played Pittsburgh in the Super Bowl, the cable went out during the second quarter... and never came back on during the game. Time Warner didn't seem to care. Their response at the time was "Oh well, sorry". Strange that it has happened again when Seattle is once again in the Super Bowl.

That IS odd.

The "basic cable" feed was the same picture as the HD feed and unless you pay the xtra 45 bones a month for that along with other fees you are up the creek. Time Warner has gone downhill in customer service and uphill in prices ever since they started having to pay for Dodgers and Lakers.
