Finally, watch live cable TV, right on your iPad! Just go to iTunes and search for “TWcable” and you’ll up and running in no time. Use your Oceanic Cable and Road Runner with wifi in the house. Your Ipad can watch live TV, search through the program guide, program the DVR and even change the channels. Go to iTunes and search for TWcable.

I’ve gotten some questions from friends on some details so here’s how to get installed.

Requirements: you need to be an  Oceanic Time Warner customer with both a cable and RoadRunner subscription.  You also need wifi running in the house.

1. Go to myservices.timewarnercable.com and set yourself up with an account.  Of course this is for Oceanic Time Warner customers only.

2. Go to the Appstore and search for Twcable or just click on this TWcable App Store link to go direct.

3. Install the app in your iPad and enjoy!

 

Special thanks to Ed Sugimoto of Oceanic who wrote up additional information on his experience on the DVR functions.

I watch more Internet video on my smartphone than on my TV and it’s because I’ve got my phone using the wifi and got my wifi using my Road Runner Broadband which just doubled their speed. Now I watch my favorite Internet videos out on the lanai instead of the living room.
