Any Room Can Be the TV Room with Time Warner Cable's New iPad AppTuesday, March 15th, 2011
NEW YORK — Time Warner Cable (NYSE:TWC) today announced the launch of the TWCable TV™ app for the Apple iPad™, allowing video customers to stream live linear television to the device at no additional charge. This free feature gives Standard (Expanded Basic) and higher video customers with Roadrunner or Earthlink Cable Internet service the ability to watch many of our most popular national channels to which they already subscribe, in HD on their iPads anywhere within their own home. Customers can navigate on their iPads with the aid of a mini- guide within their wireless home network. Additional services, including remote control functionality, video on demand viewing capability and the ability to program their DVR will be added on a continuing basis.
“We are tremendously excited about this app, which is the first of many that will allow our customers to harness the power of their tablet-type devices. No other cable company has done this, and we are thrilled to be the first,” stated Rob Marcus, President and Chief Operating Officer for Time Warner Cable. “Helping our customers see the content they’re paying for on multiple devices makes their Time Warner Cable subscription even more valuable, and they can expect much more from us in this space very soon.”
To use this feature, customers simply download the app from the iTunes® App Store™, launch it, log in and scroll through the channel lineup to select preferred programming.
