Cablevision Optimum v2.0 app now allows the iPhone to stream cable TV programming
In the past, Cablevision’s Optimum app allowed iPad owners to stream all of the television programming available with their full channel lineup, but meanwhile, the iPhone was simply left out of the equation.

However, things are surely starting to look extremely good for the iPhone now that the Cablevision Optimum app has has made it to version 2.0. That’s because it now offers support to other iOS devices – such as the iPhone and iPod touch. Simply going by the name of Optimum, it allows the iPhone to stream live television or play back on-demand programming. But of course, the user is required to be at home in order to gain this functionality.

Regardless of that, some people will surely appreciate it seeing that they can watch all of the programming right in the palm of their hands. In addition, the new version gives the iPad app the ability to run like a virtual remote control to the cable box – thus, allowing you to even schedule DVR recordings. And considering the size of the iPad, it would be unlikely for some people to misplace it compared to your standard remote. So if you haven’t done so already, you might want to download the latest version of the app to your iOS device.
