Time Warner Cable will reportedly offer live TV through Apple TV


Apple and Time Warner Cable are reportedly very close to hashing out a deal allowing existing TWC customers to watch live TV through the Apple TV. This will be the biggest Apple TV deal yet, with 300 channels coming to the Apple TV.

This deal will not be an extra add on for Apple TV customers, for users to gain access to the Time Warner Cable programming, they must already have a subscription on TWC with the cable provider. This has been done many times with HBO and ESPN also offering out apps for existing subscribers, but only through the cable provider.

Time Warner Cable already offers out their service to the rival Roku set top box, Microsoft’s Xbox 360 console and on Android and iOS. We believe Apple is trying to grab as many content providers as they can, possibly for the release of the Apple HDTV.
