BRIGHT HOUSE NETWORKS CORPORATE HISTORY

The Bright House Network as it stands today wouldn’t be recognizable a decade ago. That’s because prior to 2003, BrightHouse consisted of many different cable systems that went by different names, including Vision Cable and TelePrompTer Cable. All of these companies fell under the umbrella of a partnership between Time Warner Entertainment and Advance/Newhouse, a parent management company.

In 2003, Advance/Newhouse separated from Time Warner Entertainment, taking with it a piece of the cable system pie. With this portion, Advance/Newhouse took over managerial and operational duties and unified the division under Bright House Networks.

BRIGHT HOUSE PRODUCTS AND SERVICES

Brighthouse offers a variety of options to customers in the way of television service, various Internet speed choices, and home phone plans.
