Sweet news, Android-lovers: our TWC TV for Android release 2.0, featuring live video enhancement for Android 4.x devices, is happening right this minute.
It will take some time for it to propagate across the Google Play servers, but should be available by 3PM EST.
I wrote about this in more detail a week or so ago, and I’d encourage you to read that post again.
Essentially, it boils down to this:
While we now offer live video to users with Ice Cream Sandwich on their Android devices, we have no control over whether or not your particular device has Ice Cream Sandwich yet. Once your device upgrades, you’re off to the races.
Here’s a direct link to TWC TV for Android release 2.0 in Google Play.
If you experience difficulty (meaning the app will not launch following upgrade), you’ll need to uninstall the app and reinstall.
To uninstall, go to: applications / settings / apps / select TWC TV from the list, then tap “uninstall”. Or, simply go the main app page and drag the old version to the trash. After removal, return to Google Play (formerly Android market) and reinstall TWC TV. This will fix the issue.
This won’t work on rooted devices – for the same reason it doesn’t work on jailbroken iOS devices. We promise our programming partners a secure, in-home experience when we offer this free product, and rooted/jailbroken devices subvert the security that we are obliged to offer our partners.
