Time Warner has added 7 new channels to its TWCable TV for iPad app this week. The live streaming app has added these channels:
• History en Español
• Crime & Investigation Network
• History International
• The Biography Channel
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 new TWCable TV app – Time Warner’s live streaming app for the iPad – had some major server issues the other night and had to reduce its number of available channels from 32 down to 15. They’ve since corrected the issues and the app is cranking along at full speed, and with all channels working.
The company’s blog post announcing that the issues are resolved makes the analogy that it’s not a good party if you don’t run out of beer. So I take it they’re fairly pleased with the response to their app’s release this week. I did a quick of the app a couple days ago – you can see that review here: http://ipadinsight.com/ipad-app-reviews/quick-look-twcable-tv-for-ipad-time-warner-cables-new-live-streaming-app-looks-good/
Are any of you seeing any issues in the TWCable TV app now?
TWCable TV is a new iPad app from Time Warner Cable – that provides live streaming of TV shows from a selected range of TWC channels. You need to be a Time Warner Cable video subscriber to use the app, and have a username and password registered with them as well. I had never done this before but was able to do it from within the app when trying it out today.
I haven’t used many live streaming TV apps, but I gave this one a try as we use Time Warner Cable at home and we’re pretty happy with their basic cable package.
