Have you ever been sitting at your computer and thought “man, I would love to watch streaming TV on my iPad, but I don’t want to stand up and walk all the way to the other side of the room to get it?”
If so, you’re in luck. You’re really going to want to clean your feeding tubes out for this one:
Today, we’re launching the beta version of TWC TV, available on any computer to Time Warner Cable subscribers. That means you can stream live TV right to your desktop computer, as well as manage your DVR and tune your set-top box.
Ever since launching the TWC TV app for the iPad, we’ve been expanding the platforms that our customers can use to get value from their video subscription, and this represents the latest star in that particular constellation.
If you’re interested in checking it out, just visit the website at http://www.twctv.com.
Here’s the full list of features:
This will work for both PC and Mac. Here are the supported browsers:
You’ll need to download or possibly upgrade Silverlight to version 4.
Customers with iGuide or SARA set-top boxes and analog video customers cannot tune their TVs using the TWC TV apps or website. Furthermore, you’ll need a high-speed data connection to use this. If you don’t happen to get our HSD service from TWC or Earthlink,we have to install a “video only” wireless gateway to enable the live video feature within the app. Program guide and set-top box tuning as well as DVR scheduling are accessible from any internet connection both in and out of home.
As always, we will be making refinements and improvements to this over time, adding features, functionality, and fixing bugs in upcoming releases.
