Time Warner Cable Android 4.0 App Still Away From Completion, Will Run Only In Homes

Posted on Apr 6 2012 - 4:02am by Editorial Staff

Time Warner Cable has been working on its Android tablet app for streaming live videos from quite some time and today the company has provided an update on its progress. The company promises the app will be out in next few weeks but the major restrained that is still pulling it out is the app will work only in homes and only compatible with Android 4.0.

Jeff Simmermon, TWC’s Director, Digital Communications, said: “Developing our video product for Android is not unlike tweezing one’s eyebrows while using a disco ball for a mirror. We’re going to get there, but it’s going to happen one facet at a time.” He compared it to developing for Apple’s iOS, which he said is “much easier” since there’s only one OS and one manufacturer to target.

    I have to hand it to Time Warner, they really know how to go all out for their customers. Of the 3 percent of Androids with Ice Cream Sandwich, how many of them actually have Time Warner cable? Its things like this that make me so happy to have service from a progressive provider like DISH, my employer. They have always supported Android along with iOS. More importantly DISH has overcome the home network requirement that Time Warner and other providers still suffer from. With DISH Remote Access I can watch any live channel or DVR recording almost anywhere I go.
