Time Warner Cable Inc. and Verizon Wireless Inc. have announced the launch of a joint wireless and entertainment package to customers in the Rochester area.

Officials from Time Warner Cable said customers in the Rochester area can purchase Time Warner Cable video, Internet and voice services together with Verizon Wireless plans and products. The two companies have rolled out a similar partnership packages in several other states, including Kansas, Ohio, Wisconsin, Massachusetts and California.

With the package, customers can select from a range of services. For example, one service features Time Warner Cable’s “Ultimate Internet and Signature Home” package purchased along with a Verizon Wireless data plan, smartphone or tablet.

“This is a big win for customers looking for a more complete entertainment and communications offering for inside the home and wherever they go,” said Terence Rafferty, regional vice president for Time Warner Cable Northeast, in a statement. “The joining together of products and services from Time Warner Cable and Verizon Wireless into a single offer provides customers more choice, convenience and greater value.”
