Time Warner Cable launches Roku channel

Time Warner Cable has launched its TWC TV app on Roku boxes in the US, giving authenticated access some 300 live channels through the web-powered device and plans to add on-demand content to the offering later this year.

TWC TV for Roku is available to Time Warner Cable video subscribers with a TWC authorised modem and Roku box, and is the fourth platform launch for TWC TV.

The Time Warner deal was first announced in January as part of a string of new content deals agreed by Roku.
