TWC TV App Brings Loads Of TV Commanding Power To Android

Has the cord-cutting generation already taken hold? Time Warner Cable hopes not, or at least, they're hoping to rope a few back in by reaching across the digital divide. The company has just announced the launch of their TWC TV app for Android, which allows Digital TV customers to search program listings by title or episode name, browse network schedules, set favorite channels and even program their DVR right from their smartphone. The app is available to video customers at the standard (expanded basic) level or higher, with at least one compatible Navigator set-top box or DVR. Analog (cable ready) customers and those with Motorola set-top boxes or DVRs running iGuide are not supported.

Features include an Interactive Program Guide (IPG) (up to 7 days of TV listings, optimized for display on smartphone screens in one-hour time blocks), Network Schedule view (tap on a network logo from the IPG and see the schedule for a specific network), Search, and Remote Control of STB (the ability to use the Android smartphone as a set-top box remote control, choosing a program from the grid guide and tuning the DVR or set-top box to the selected channel). There's also a DVR Manager, which provides the ability to remotely schedule or change upcoming DVR recordings.


Customers can hit the Android Market right now to get version 1.0, and yes, it's free if you're a subscriber.

This comes as a one two punch from a floundering company who keeps trying to avoid going under, first they release the app and second they release the HBO Go accessibility to all of their subscribers to try and keep a firm grasp on the market that is slipping away from them.

I like my cable box, thought If i could get a few more things streamed online then I might ditch it. But I enjoy watching tv while playing games sometimes.
