Samsung has announced a deal to make Time Warner Cable content available on its Galaxy Tab tablet device. Available as an app within Samsung's application storefront, the Time Warner Cable service ultimately will give Time Warner Cable's subscribers access to all of their cable channels directly on Samsung smart TVs and Galaxy Tab in the home.
In addition to watching live TV on the Smart TV and Tab, the company demonstrated the capability for Time Warner Cable customers to access recorded content from a DVR elsewhere in the home directly on the Samsung Smart TV, without the need for a connected set-top box. This creates a multi-room viewing experience that doesn't require multiple set-top boxes in homes that have more than one connected TV.
"We are very excited to announce Time Warner Cable as our newest partner in delivering new smart TV experiences," said Boo-Keun Yoon, president of Samsung' Visual Display Business. "The era of smart TV is here, and innovative partners like Time Warner Cable, that can utilize this ground-breaking technology to deliver new entertainment solutions to their consumers, will be the first to succeed."
Time Warner Cable anticipates beginning to offer the apps commercially on Samsung devices later this year.
