Watch cable TV on your iPad

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

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!
