News - Time Warner Cable Launches Live TV Streaming for the Desktop

Time Warner Cable has, like most of the major cable providers, been working diligently to bring their services to subscribers' mobile devices by launching apps for controlling settop boxes, managing DVRs, streaming VOD content and, increasingly, streaming live TV. Live TV streaming for Android apps seems to be stalled while Ice Cream Sandwich moves into the market, but TWC's developers aren't wasting time looking for new platforms to join the iOS version of TWC TV. The company has launched a beta version of TWC TV for the desktop. The desktop version will be browser-based and utilize a Silverlight-player. Like the iOS apps, the desktop version of TWC TV offers DVR management and streaming video so long as the subscriber is on their home network, and also offers options for seelcting from the program guide to play on the PC or to turn on and control the settop box for viewing on the television.

After expanding its live TV streaming from iPads to iPhones, Time Warner Cable is going in the other direction and offering the service on PCs. The PC version of TWC TV launched today in beta -- still no word on streaming to Android devices or HDTVs yet -- but the Silverlight player will work on Windows and OS X, in Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari or Chrome.

News - Time Warner Cable App Available for iPhone and iPod Touch

Time Warner Cable launched their live TV streaming app for Android phones just about a month ago, and today the company announced that iPhone and iPod Touch owners can get in on the action as well. The iOS app is actually an update to the previously iPad-only app. It offers Time Warner Cable subscribers live TV streaming over their home network as well as remote control and DVR management functionality. The app is not backward compatible with all of Apple's small-screen iOS devices and Time Warner only supports the app for subscribers with a Navigator settop box or DVR, so be sure to check your equipment before rushing to the Apple App Store.

TWC iPhone App

Time Warner Cable is today launching a new iPhone application that allows customers to watch live television from their iPhone or iPod Touch device as well as control, manage and program their DVR. With the new app, users can browse the TV guide, favorite channels and search for programs by title or episode name.

News - Time Warner Cable Apps Available for Android Phones

Time Warner Cable Android App

Time Warner Cable hasn't managed to put out an app for streaming live TV anywhere but the iPad so far, and has only recently started paying attention to Android tablets, but Android phones are getting some extra attention from TWC. TWC has let slip two new apps specifically formatted for Android phones. There is My TWC, an account management app, and more interestingly, TWCable TV, the first phone specific version of TWC's TV control and streaming app. Unfortunately, the live streaming part is still forthcoming. Time Warner Cable may be taking their time rolling out their mobile streaming app with all of the features turned on, but at least they will be spread out across all of the major apps and device types.

 iPhone and Android owners alike shouldn't have to wait long for their relief however, as the iPhone edition is slated to arrive in January, and ICS-enabled live TV streaming is still on the roadmap for "early next year."

News - Android Apps Inbound from Sky TV and Time Warner Cable

The iPad is so yesterday. Now all of the TV providers want to be on Android tablets. Sky TV is promising that the Android version of their TV streaming and mobile VOD service, Sky Go, will arrive in the next couple of months. By all accounts, Sky Go has been a hit on PCs and iOS devices and Android support will only further improve on that success.

 Sky Go has been a huge hit for Sky – amalgamating its on demand services and proving popular not only on computers but also on iOS devices like the iPhone and iPad.

However, thousands of Android users have been checking back for months to see when an Android version will be arriving.


TV on Android

Back on this side of the pond, Time Warner Cable is working on bringing their iPad app over to Android. Unfortunately for Time Warner subscribers, it sound like much of the functionality will be on hold until Ice Cream Sandwich is released.

The cable company has announced that it's currently developing an Android app that's expected to launch in late November but with a major caveat: it won't offer live streaming until after Ice Cream Sandwich is released.
