iPhone users get Time Warner Cable TV app

Users of Time Warner Cable (TWC) services can now take advantage of a dedicated software application that allows them to enjoy live television content ‘on-the-go’ through their smartphones.

Compatible with the Apple iPhone (running iOS 4.3 or later), the app is available now via the official App Store and works by tapping into TWC to enabling users to split channel watching between their home-based TV and handset.

Beyond allowing the cross-device viewing of TWC content over a home Wi-Fi network, the app also delivers a seven-day interactive program guide, a search function, automatic set-top box tuning, and even a DVR scheduling and management tool.

The only major downside of TWC’s iPhone app is that its placement as a ‘mobile software application’ is distinctly limited due because access is, of course, confined to within the home.

Owners of Android-powered smartphones and tablet computers already have access to a similar TWC content app—but it differs notably in that it doesn’t offer live TV. The cable provider has promised to address that shortfall via Google’s Ice Cream Sandwich update.

Download the Time Warner Cable TV app by clicking on this direct link to the App Store.
