A few weeks ago, I mentioned that we are developing a TWCable TV app for the Android tablet. I said that it would be available sometime in late November — and sure enough it is.
You can go download the TWC TV™ app for Android tablets in the Android marketplace right this minute if you like at this link:
Here are the relevant features from our press release:
This free feature gives Digital TV customers the ability to program their DVR, add favorite channels and even use their Android tablet as a remote control. The app is available to all customers with set-top boxes or DVRs running the Time Warner Cable “Navigator” interactive program guide.
Features on TWCTV™ 1.0 for the Android tablet include:
• Interactive Program Guide (IPG) – a complete IPG experience, with 7 days of program listings including full program description
• Search – search TV listings by title or episode name
• Remote Control of STB – the ability to use the Android tablet as a set-top box remote control, choosing a program from the grid guide and tuning the DVR or set-top box to the selected channel.
• DVR Manager – the ability to remotely schedule or change upcoming DVR recordings
The app has been certified to run on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 or Motorola Xoom, but is designed to run on any Honeycomb (Android 3.x) tablet. Customers can download TWC TV™ 1.0 from the Android Market, launch it, log in and scroll through the interactive program guide to select preferred programming.
We’ll be making more improvements and adding features in the coming months. And, as always, please let us know your thoughts in the comments.
