I have suddenlink at my Cabin, and Time Warner at my home.
Time Warner cable copy protects everything on AMC, thus I CAN'T transfer Walking Dead to my computer.
On Suddenlink... They do NOT copy protect AMC, and I CAN transfer Walking Dead to my computer!!!
There are many other channels on Time Warner that ALL of the the shows are Copy Protected, but those SAME channels are NOT copy protected on Suddenlink.
HBO & Starz is copy protected on BOTH Cable Providers.
