One key feature that had been missing from both Android and iOS smartphone devices was the lack of an app that would allow direct streaming of TV content. But this has changed now. Time Warner has updated it’s Cable TV iOS App so that it can stream Live TV directly on an iPhone as well as an iPad. The feature is still missing on Android devices which can only access channels guide through a similar app. With the update, iPhone and iPad has yet another key feature available which is missing in their Android counterparts.
With this new update, iPhone and iPad users can directly stream content from a number of channels. They can view this content as long as they are in the range of the local wi-fi network. Surely, the user experiences for iPhone and iPad users will be hugely enhanced by this very useful app. They can access different TV channels on the go, all they require is a supported iOS device and access to a wi-fi network.
The devices for which the app has been updated include iPhone 3GS, 3rd generation iPod Touch, original iPad or devices that have been released in the series later.
Such an app is still unavailable for Android devices. There is an Android version of this app available for Android devices but that only lets the Android users access channels guide and set their DVR recordings. They are still unable to access live TV content through streaming.
