This is a pathetic ISP. Time Warner service is terrible. They block internet sites that stream TV content for free, such as ESPN 3, and then offer the service themselves, only if you subscribe for their premium TV packages.

And with the Sling Adaptor (was free after $99 rebate card and now $30 straight up), you can stream all your recordings as well as live tv to a pc or iPad.
This is nothing but a service just like one we have in the telecom I work for, for years now.
It's important to notice that these channels are licensed for use by many ISPs and they are not their own property. As you know, channels want a cut from those users too.
And even debating those issues for years, still not all of them are available. In other hand some producers have more willingness to provide content like Fox for instance.
We've provided in our latest products video on demand too which means probably TWC will rather sooner than later follow suit.
So just take it as a step forward in the way for making content more accessible.
As for price, we made it as a premium subscribers free additional service for starting (like beta testing) and later payed service but for a reasonable price. So I feel you don't need to worry about that too because if it gets priced too high, people will just use it as a trial and leave. No company can sustain such an investment, partnerships and have no one to charge.
More cable companies need to introduce/switch to online streaming only for their TV content. That way if I have Verizon Fios at home (which I do) I could order Time Warner online TV (which isn't available anywhere near my area).
This would promote even more competition between service providers so that companies that don't normally compete with each other due to geographic availability are now forced to.
And the services would really be Hulu or Netflix like, only with all the goodies you can only get from the cable company. Every household would only have some sort of reasonable data line (Fios, Cable internet, 4G - though DSL may be too slow), and get all of their television streamed to them.
I happen to agree with you but jesus, "iCrappies" is what you came up with? That's some classic middle school wit. Might as well resort to "Tim Cook is a big doo-doo face!"
I have a Samsung 61in. Ultra slim/full HD/3HDMI/3Dready/NEOstreaming/wireless/routed. I watch Nettled on my TV.Games too but I can't get Internet on my Tv. I'm w/Time warner. Oh, my Internet is on my kindle fire and with the right equipment, which I believe I have, I should be able to connect through Tv. Any helpful suggestion. I'm retired and a big Sports fan. Help!
