    Why doesn't Time Warner drive growth through new technology

    I just had a general observation about TWC. It seems that to achieve their growth each year they raise rates. This always tends to upset customers. For instance in 05 DVR rates were under $5 they are currently $10. In one year alone DVR rates rose by $1 on 3 different occasions.
    Wouldn't it make more sense to offer better DVR's and other tech at a higher price to help drive additional revenue. I do understand that a capital investment must be made, so maybe that is too high to justify.
    I don't know it just seems that offering a single tv DVR for $6 per month and a DVR with the capability to control 4 TVs for $12 would make sense, create a sense of value and drive additional revenue.
    This is just one example. If TWC changed and drove new tech for an extra cost. People would buy and like their cable company.
