Time Warner Cable apparently doesn't want to let their competitors be the only ones with a remote control & programming guide app for Android tablets. The company just announced they will be bringing a TWCable TV App to the Android 4.0/Ice Cream Sandwich platform sometime early next year. The app will also facilitate their live streaming TV experience. Here is a feature-list that they gave,
  • Interactive Program Guide (IPG) – a complete IPG experience, with 7 days of program listings including full program description
  • Remote Control of STB –the ability to use the Android tablet as a set-top box remote control, choosing a program from the grid guide and tuning the MDN or ODN STB to the selected channel.
  • DVR Manager – the ability to remotely program MDN or ODN DVRs with capabilities similar to the current web & mobile Remote DVR Manager product
They intend to have the app ready for testing sometime this year, but their time-line may change, and the live streaming service will not be available until next year. This looks like a pretty neat service. What do you guys think?
