Time Warner Cable has been named the official communication provider of the Anaheim Ducks and Honda Center.
What does that mean? It’s a business partnership, a sponsorship that essentially makes the cable provider the go-to telecom company for the hockey team and sports arena. If the Anaheim Ducks market any sort of cable TV, Internet or phone service, Time Warner’s name will be splashed all over the campaign.
What it doesn’t mean: Time Warner customers aren’t guaranteed access to every single televised game. That’s up to the TV networks.
But you could win stuff.
First up: the Home and Away Giveaway. The sweet grand price is 20 tickets to the Feb. 8 home game versus the Los Angeles Kings plus a catered party during the Feb. 4 away game. The latter includes a 46-inch Sony Bravia HDTV and home entertainment system, plus food from Oggi’s Pizza & Brewery and Ducks’ gift packs. Details at AnaheimDucks.com/homeandaway. The contest ends at 10 p.m. on Jan. 29.
Time Warner, which has sponsored the Ducks in years past, is also a presenting sponsor of Ducks TV, which is part of the Anaheim Ducks Hockey Network. The company also happens to provide cable TV service to the venue.
