Time Warner Cable is now allowing subscribers access to programing via Roku media players without the need for a set-top cable box. (You will, however, need an authorized modem and internet service.) Using the TWC app, subscribers with Roku players can browse content by titles, genres, and favorites. There are also parental controls built into the free app. The Roku is actually the first TV-connected device to allowing streaming of Time Warner Cable television.
Although robust and free-of-charge for TWC subscribers, the Roku app is currently only available for live television feeds. Roku says a video-on-demand feature will be added in the near future.
Just this week Roku launched the Roku 3, an upgraded player built to support 1080p and comes with a new motion-based controller for games.
Last month, the company announced Blockbuster On Demand availability on Roku devices.
Roku devices supporting the Time Warner Cable app include the new Roku 3, Roku HD(model 2500), Roku 2, Roku Streaming Stick, and Roku LT.
