Los Angeles, CA (August 8, 2011) – – This year, according to the National Retail Federation,
local families will spend an average of $190 on back to school technology purchases. Time
Warner Cable and Best Buy have teamed up to find a way to save families up 53% off that
national average: new customers will get $100 rebate when signing up for Time Warner Cable’s
Digital TV and Broadband Internet services at Best Buy stores located across Time Warner
Cable’s footprint.

“This effort reinforces our company commitment to STEM (science, technology, education, and
math) education,” said Katie Beardsley, Director, Community Relations, Time Warner Cable,
Pacific West Region. “Through our Connect a Million Minds initiative, Time Warner Cable
provides the resources for parents to connect their children to after school math and science
programs. We’re proud to be able to offer this $100 rebate, in partnership with Best Buy, to
help parents fund their Back to School technology needs.”

The 2011 Back To School Campaign, which runs through September 30, will feature sales
events, giveaways and in-store Time Warner Cable product demonstrations at most Best Buy
locations. New Time Warner Cable digital customers will also have the option to sign up for
Digital Home Phone service to receive an additional $50 rebate.

About Connect a Million Minds
Time Warner Cable’s (TWC) Connect a Million Minds (CAMM) is a five-year, $100 million philanthropic initiative to address
America’s declining proficiency in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), which puts our children at risk of not
competing successfully in a global economy. Using its media assets, TWC creates awareness of the issue and inspires students
to develop the STEM skills they need to become the problem solvers of tomorrow. Program highlights include: original PSAs
that challenge public perceptions of STEM; a unique website, www.connectamillionminds.com, where parents and community
members can pledge to connect young people with the wonders of science; “The Connectory”, a one-of-a-kind online resource
that makes it simple and easy for parents and students to find informal science and technology learning opportunities in their
communities; grants to support non-profit organizations that bring stimulating, high-quality and affordable after-school STEM
learning to students; TWC employees, over 47,000 strong, who volunteer their time at community events like science fairs and
robotics competitions, and share their passion for engineering and technology with students at CAMM career days. TWC’s
national CAMM partners are CSAS (Coalition for Science After School) and FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and
Technology). Local TWC markets are activating CAMM across the country with community-specific programs and partnerships.
