Yesterday, we launched our newest TWC TV platform: TWC TV for Roku Streaming Players.
This first release will offer the same live TV line-up found on our existing TWC TV apps for Apple iOS, Android and PC browsers. We’re building on the success of TWC TV for mobile devices and PCs by supporting our first traditional TV screen experience. The user interface reflects our TWC TV look & feel, but in a way that will be familiar and easily navigated by current Roku users.
The Roku 1.0 product is similar to our first Apple iOS product in that it is focused on live TV. Additional features including on demand free and subscription content will be added later this year. Key features of this release include:
1. Access up to 300 channels of live programming at home (identical to
current TWC TV line-up, varies by system)
2. Browse carousels of genre-grouped titles represented by
full color box art
3. Quickly recall recently viewed channels
4. Set and recall favorite channel list
5. Parental control channel blocking (configured within
MyServices, as with other TWC TV apps)
The TWC TV Channel is supported on Roku 2, Roku 3, Roku HD (model 2500R), and Roku LT players, as well as the Roku Streaming Stick. Roku 1 players are not supported. Customer must have a TWC ID and a Roku user name and password in order to access TWC TV (or any other Roku channel).
Like all TWC TV apps, Standard Cable TV and a TWC-authorized modem are required.
