Time Warner app brings live TV to the iPhone and iPad

Time Warner app brings live TV to the iPhone and iPad
We predicted just a couple weeks ago that streaming live TV to mobile devices would be a major trend in 2012, and yet another example emerged today, as Time Warner released a new iOS app that upgrades the app from a glorified remote control and content finder to a device that can watch Time Warner Cable content live.

You won’t be able to watch your Warner Cable content anywhere – for now you will need to be on your home WiFi network in order to see it. And for the time being Android users are out of luck. But for those who own a 3GS iPhone or newer, a 3rd generation iPod Touch (or better) or an iPad you’re in luck; you can now watch the latest episode of Real House Wives on your phone while keeping up with your chores around the house.

Time Warner is actually a bit late to the party – Comcast, Cablevision, and VerizonFiOS customers have been able to take advantage of content on mobile devices for a while. As these services - and mobile devices - become more ubiquitous, consumers will start to choose content suppliers based on what services they offer to mobile users. At that point TV on mobile will start to become truly mainstream.
