TWC TV app gets update for Android 4.0 streaming

As expected, Time Warner Cable has updated its TWC TV app (free, Google Play) to work seamlessly on Android 4.0-powered devices. It now allows live streaming of TV content, but those who couldn't wait for the official Android 4.0 update to reach their handsets and have gone on and rooted their handsets won't have success. The app will not work on such handsets, though there may be a workaround.

The blockage isn't news, though some users have found a fairly simple way to get rid of the issue. By going to the app's settings menu and erasing the app's data, at least one user said he enabled the app's functionality on a rooted handset.

The app lets Time Warner Cable subscribers watch live streaming TV over a home Wi-Fi network. It also has an interactive, seven-day program guide and lets users schedule recordings to their DVR. [via Droid-Life]
