    Time Warner Cable Becomes the First Cable Company to Launch Live TV iPad app


    The Associated Press reports today that Time Warner Cable Inc has announced that it is launching an iPad app that plays live TV, which will be available to download from the app store on Tuesday morning. The app is free, but will only work if you subscribe to both of Time Warner Cable’s video and Internet services. The app can also only be viewed at home, and requires that your iPad be connected to your Time Warner cable modem via Wi-Fi.

    “For all intents and purposes… this enables you to convert any room in a house into a TV room,” Time Warner Cable’s chief operating officer and president Rob Marcus told the AP, adding that to begin with the app will only be able to show 30 basic HD channels, but that figure will soon grow.

    The AP report points out that although many other cable and TV companies have iPad apps that stream TV shows and films, Time Warner Cable will be the first to actually show live TV when the app is launched tomorrow.

    Verizon has been promoting a similar app for months, but they say they're still negotiating rights clearances. Maybe this will push them along.

    As long as you still have to have your danged cable subscription I see this as just a stop-gap solution as they do what they can to not lose subscribers to Net-based feeds.

    Give me a decent TV service on the Net, which I will pay for, and I am there. But they know they cannot charge what they do now by forcing 350 channels we don't watch onto us.... so they will go down kicking and screaming.

    Having TW, I think it's a cool little freebie. DVR programing and cable box remote are coming soon, they say.

    Apparently, there are some wrinkles that still need to be ironed out.

    Err.. Except that's its NOT the first app to stream live TV. The BBC News app has allowed you to stream live BBC News 24 for months...

    Oh, and while not a downloadable App - tvcatchup.co.uk offers an iPad specific web app which streams all of the free to view digital terrestrial channels.

    So hardly groundbreaking!
