Just as soon as channels were cut, even more were added to the fold. Time Warner Cable turned what seemed like an annoying situation with the stubborn networks and threw some more channels at us. What turned out to be a curse now seems more like a blessing. As always, TWC sent a nice email my way with a list of new channels that have been added to the app. Enjoy!
As you know, on March 15, 2011, Time Warner Cable introduced a new innovation: the FREE TWCable TV App. Over 300,000 of you have downloaded the app, turning your iPad™ into a TV screen and watching selected live cable TV channels in your home with no new wires, no new TVs, and no new set-top boxes.
Unfortunately, some TV networks disagree that you have the right to watch their programming on any screen in your home, so we decided to stop carrying their channels on the iPad lineup effective March 31. Instead, for the time being, we have decided to focus our iPad efforts on other programmers who understand the benefit and importance of allowing our customers – and their viewers – to watch their programming on any screen in your home.
Good News! As of today, we have added 20 new channels to the lineup on our iPad. We’ve added a variety of news, entertainment, and general interest channels that will let you continue to enjoy a wide selection of programs on your iPad. And we’re adding more all the time, so check your lineup every day to see if there are more new channels.
Lifetime Movie Network
(Note: Customers will be able to view those channels delivered to the iPad that are within the tier of service to which they subscribe.)
Your enthusiasm, and the enthusiasm of the programming partners who have embraced the app – rather than those who are solely focused on finding additional ways to reach into wallets of their own viewers – has convinced us more than ever that we are on the right path. Read for yourself what other customers have said at: http://iwantmytwcabletvapp.com/what-youre-saying/. Join in the conversation. And know that we will continue to fight to ensure that you have access to the content you pay for, no matter which screen in your home you choose to view it on.
