Time Warner Cable Brings Live TV Streaming to iPhone and iPod touch

by Marianne Schultz
 

Time Warner Cable, an American cable television service provider, has released an update to its TWC TV app that adds compatibility for the iPhone and iPod touch, expanding access beyond the iPad for live TV streaming via Wi-Fi within subscribers’ homes.

Time Warner Cable’s TWC TV app first debuted for the iPad only early last year and experienced some controversy shortly after its release when several media companies objected to the use of their content in the app, forcing Time Warner to remove several channels from its line-up available for streaming within the app. Despite this, the list of channels available for streaming through the app has since increased and at least one of the media companies that complained initially, FX, is back in the streaming line-up.

Beyond streaming live programming, TWC TV offers the ability to change channels on compatible cable boxes and DVRs and manage recordings and settings on compatible DVRs. The interactive program guide is also accessible through the app.

The free app requires iOS 4.3 or higher on an iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, 3rd-generation or newer iPod touch, and iPad and iPad 2. You must be a subscriber to Time Warner Cable service with a Standard video package or higher and have a Time Warner Cable user name and password as well as a home Wi-Fi network.

    I of course had to dash right off and pay for this when I saw it somewhere else the other day. It totally sucks. I asked it the example questions that it gave, plus a few simple one’s where is the closest supermarket to me like that, and it spun and spun, after 10 minutes ays ask again, and the only answer I got was do a search, MYSELF what good is this for? OH and a Wikipedia page that defined supermarket.
    Don’t waste your money, at least I can save you that maybe!
