If you're anything like me, you like your TV big, your beer cold and your internet fast.  And I'm not talking about that 12mbps download rate that passes for high-speed.  I'm talking about the good stuff. Time Warner has launched an impressive service that gives you up to 50mbps down and 5mpbs up at a price of $99 a month.  It's not bad for crazy fast internet, but the company sweetens the deal even more by adding a free Slingbox to the offer.

If you subscribe to the high speed internet service, you'll also receive a $300 rebate with the purchase of a Slingbox.  It's a pretty slick deal for you but it might be even better for Time Warner. Time Warner has been fighting with companies that produce content over licensing costs for a while now.  By giving their customers Slingboxes, Time Warner gets around these.  Customers can enjoy their shows on the go and it doesn't cost the company a dime.
