When it was first released, I reviewed the iOS app from Time Warner Cable that allowed you to watch selected channels from their programming lineup on your iOS device. They’ve added some channels since the release, but the functions remained pretty much the same. The most recent update added access to “thousands of free and subscription on demand TV shows and movies.” The app still has the same limitations: you must subscribe to a minimum level of Time Warner cable services, you can only what while the iOS device is connected to the network at the address associated with the Time Warner account, and you can’t see programming you don’t pay for. This version has also been optimized for iPhone 5. I tried it out, and the most recent episodes of some of my favorite shows (for example, Thursday’s epispode of The Big Bang Theory) were already available. The TWC app is free in the iTunes store.
