iPad app which can change TV viewing forever
While a 10-inch iPad screen can’t compare to a larger TV screen and a surround sound experience, the new Time Warner Cable service is changing the TV-watching dynamic.
Australians are avid TV watchers and have demonstrated a willingness to watch programs on other devices including smartphones and the iPad so a live TV streaming service would be well received.
Foxtel has already embraced broadband distribution of its channels through the Xbox 360 and the Telstra T-Box.
Other catch-up services like ABC’s iView are already available in Australia for iPad users.
Time Warner Cable users also have to have an internet account with the company to use the app.
The service can only be used in the wi-fi area and won’t work over 3G.
The app works only on the iPad running iOS4.2 or higher.
