Time Warner TV iPad App Now Lets You Watch On Demand Content

If you use the official Time Warner TV iPad app, then you’re in luck. A big update has brought the ability to view On Demand content, including 4,000 TV and movie titles from 91 different providers.

Content is available in HD and standard def depending on the provider, and you have full power to search and browse the catalog right from the comfort of your iPad.

The initial catalog is a mix of HD and standard-def content. We will be adding more stuff on a regular basis, and adding more HD as we are able.

Some networks don’t offer their on demand product in HD, while some offer a mix of SD and HD. We don’t get absolutely everything in HD today, but we will continue to add to the catalog on an ongoing basis.

We’ll be making the same upgrade to the TWC TV app for PC and Android in a near-future release, currently targeted to launch in the first quarter of 2013.

The Live TV guide in the app has been updated with a handy “recently viewed channels” button. The app has also been updated with bug fixes and stability improvements.

While the features alone are great, the sad reality is that you still need a traditional cable subscription to login into Time Warner’s app. You can download TWC TV for free in the App Store.
