Time Warner Cable is getting some flak from the public for its plan to change the name of its NY1 regional cable news channel to TWC News, but the company is assuring viewers the new moniker doesn't signal a move away from its focus on the city's five boroughs. The name change is meant to add uniformity to Time Warner Cable's 17 local news stations and to help address the problem that "people who watch our stations, such as NY1, are loyal viewers, yet most people don't understand their connection to Time Warner Cable," according to the company.
