Ogilvy & Mather really helped Time Warner Cable kick up its “Enjoy Better” a couple notches over the last year, culminating with a series of spots that both highlighted TWC’s technology and services—but also distanced the company from its utility past and positioned it as immersed in pop entertainment culture.

And best of all, these innovative and elaborate spots were just as effective with non-TWC subs as they were with existing subs.
