TWC TV App Lights Up Live TV on Xbox One

Time Warner Cable said it has added live TV streaming to its TWC TV app for the Xbox One, an addition that arrives about two months after the MSO launched the authenticated TV Everywhere app on the console with access to a library of VOD titles. 

TWC said its free app for the Xbox One currently features up to 300 live TV channels alongside a mix of 8,000 free and subscription VOD titles.

TWC also supports the TWC TV app on several other platforms, including iOS and Android mobile devices, the Xbox 360, Roku players, the Kindle Fire HD & HDX, and the Fan TV box.

The Xbox One does support an HDMI pass-through feature (opens in new tab)that lets users view and control their live TV lineup by tethering the console to a set-top with an HDMI cable.
