The Perks of Being a Super

Time Warner Cable has a "stepped-up commitment to paperwork these days" to meet new federal tax regulations, which means clearer written contracts for building superintendents seeking cable discounts. And these contracts, it turns out, don't just involve supers giving cable repair crews access in exchange for cable discounts. They also, one Manhattan super tells the Times, call for supers to make sure building residents aren't stealing cable and to let Time Warner employees come into the building just to promote their new products, and some contracts offer incentives like free Internet for recruiting new Time Warner customers.
