Oceanic Cable Serves Hawaii Under Time Warner Brand
The Time Warner subsidiary that serves most of Hawaii has been a familiar name in the islands since the 1960s. Oceanic Cablevision entered the burgeoning cable industry as a small offshoot of a Castle & Cooke real estate venture called Oceanic Properties. As Oceanic Properties pursued development of an area outside Honolulu known as Mililani Town, Oceanic Cablevision began supplying the new neighborhoods with cable television.
The company grew substantially over the years, partly by acquiring some of its competitors on the island of O'ahu. In 1981, Time Warner Cable established a presence in Hawaii by purchasing Oceanic Cablevision for $23 million.
From Oceanic Cablevision to Oceanic Time Warner Cable
Today Oceanic Time Warner Cable provides a variety of services to around 400,000 customers across the Hawaiian Islands – digital cable, Internet, home phone, home security and more. The company is part of Time Warner's regional "cable cluster" system, operating in the Pacific West division. Oceanic Time Warner Cable still maintains its headquarters in Mililani.
