Previously, Time Warner customers could watch hundreds of channels on their iOS devices in their home, but the live TV watcalign centere the home is new. Supported live channels include BBC America, Big Ten Network, Fox News Channel, Fox Business, and the Pac-12 Network, plus NY1 for New York City-based customers.

“We were the first provider to bring live television to the iPad in the home,” said Mike Angus, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Video for Time Warner Cable. “Since then, we’ve increased the number of platforms and devices on which our customers can watch live television, and added thousands of hours of Video On Demand programming at no additional cost. The release of this TWC TV update is the next natural step towards our goal of giving customers even more of the content they love on every screen.”

Time Warner Cable and Viacom were previously engaged in a lawsuit over TWC's online streaming of Viacom channels to its customers, but it was settled more than a year ago.

The TWC TV app should be updated with the new streaming tomorrow. It is a free download from the App Store. [Direct Link]

I've been using EyeTV hybrid on my Mac Pro for years. Screw in a cable and I get 99 channels plus local HD channels. When I moved to Boston, Comcast "scrambled" all the jacks claiming it was due to the digital conversion and required a DTA, which negated use of my EyeTV's DVR recording. Such b.s. from these companies. Time Warner is now slowly requiring DTA's for jacks that don't have a cable box. Many have used unscrambling devices to prove it's not a "digital" issue, but cable companies charing $2-3 for each TV, which adds up to millions in extra fees for non-techie consumers who would know better.

This streaming app seems more news oriented than anything. What about CBS, NBC, ABC, TNT, USA - networks consumers actually watch? Big yawn.

This is the future of TV, not on your living room or bed room. Time Warner is just innovating before being left as a tube (what they really are).

Now if it was possible to get TWC instead of Charter shït Communication for a cable company in my area. Charter Communication a cable company that has no innovation technology, they are still living in the 90s still dwelling on Analog cable instead of Digital and HD, who really cares if some people want to live in the past? Lets move on you will have only a few customer loss not in millions.:mad:
