The most watched sporting event of the year and popular American Tradition–the Super Bowl is back again tomorrow as the Atlanta Falcons get set to take on the New England Patriots. This is the 51st version of the contest which brings the official branding back to being represented by roman numerals. The use of LI looks pretty awkward, and is not immediately recognizable by many, but tradition is tradition, no matter how out of place it may seem at times. If you’re not spending the evening at a sports bar or at a friends house and you’re actively looking for an alternative way to watch the Super Bowl, we’re here to help. This year the Super Bowl will be aired on FOX. In addition to the main event FOX will also air all the pre-game build-up and analysis starting at 1:50 pm EST.

This puts the total number of channels available in the app over 50 now.
Time Warner has added 7 new channels to its TWCable TV for iPad app this week. The live streaming app has added these channels:

This brings the total number of channels available in the app to over 50, and TWC is actively working on adding more new channels.
The TWCable TV app for iPad from Time Warner lets you live stream their TV channels if you’re a TWC subscriber. When it launched on the App Store a couple weeks ago it offered 32 channels. This week it has had to remove access to 12 of those channels, due to legal problems with the networks that own those channels.
Here’s the details on the channels that were removed, via Time Warner’s email on this subject:
Unfortunately, that means that channels from network groups Discovery Communications, Fox Cable, and Viacom will be removed from your iPad lineup, effective immediately.
• Discovery channels: Animal Planet, Discovery, TLC

• Viacom channels: BET, CMT, Comedy, MTV, Nickelodeon, Spike, VH1
