Time Warner Cable Brings Live TV To iPhone [Multichannel News]
A new app on the Apple iTunes Store allows iPhone users to watch live TV from roughly 200 channels on their devices over their home wireless networks. Time Warner Cable is hoping to have an Android version of the app that works with Android 4.0 ready to launch later this year.
Time Warner Cable's iPad app was released in March of 2011 and was met with resistance from many programmers – none more so than Viacom, which sued the cable provider within the first month of the app's release. The legal action is on hold but the two companies have still not reached an agreement and Viacom's content is currently not available on either the iPad or iPhone apps.
Much like the iPad app, the iPhone app includes a detailed, interactive guide, set-top remote control features, and DVR management – in addition to the live streaming.
