Time Warner Cable Releases TV Streaming App for iPad

by Marianne Schultz
 

Time Warner Cable, an American cable television service provider, has released an iPad app that offers free live streaming television to its subscribers. The free TWCable TV app hit the App Store this morning and lets subscribers view live streams of 32 channels within the company’s lineup through a home Wi-Fi network.

Available channels include A&E, Animal Planet, Comedy Central, CNN, FX, SyFy, USA and others. The full list of channels is provided on Time Warner Cable’s site here.

To use the app, Time Warner Cable subscribers must also have high-speed internet service from Time Warner Cable or Earthlink Cable since the streams are available only on the company’s network. This requirement is detailed in the company’s blog:

To use our iPad app, you must subscribe to video service from us. Also: this is a video product that for technical reasons requires that you have HSD (high-speed data) service from either us or Earthlink Cable. The video streams do not go out over the public internet at all, but stay exclusively within our network. Both analog and digital video customers with HSD can use the app, but you’ll only receive the channels you receive as part of your video package. Our Wideband, Extreme, Turbo and Standard HSD customers will have an optimal experience with our streaming video. Basic HSD customers may be able to stream, but the experience will be inconsistent.

    Tried this yesterday, amazingly it works pretty good. No local channels but lots of cable ones. I like it, espeically sinec it’s part of my service and no extra fee.

    There are a lot of channels being continuously taken away from the Time Warner app, which is why I am glad that I have DISH Network. Using the DISH Remote Access app and my 922 SlingLoaded receiver, I am able to stream live TV and recorded shows to my iPad when and where I want. The Time Warner app can only be used on a home network that is provided by Time Warner as well. That does not seem very flexible. The DISH Remote Access app lets me watch TV anywhere that I have a 3G or wifi connection. This comes in handy when I want to keep watching all of my favorite shows on the go. One other plus is that I can watch any channel that I subscribe to!
