Time Warner Cable talking to Apple over streaming video deals for the Apple TV
Time Warner Cable is in discussions with Apple over deals for streaming video deals according to the company's CEO Glenn Britt. TWC already has an application on the Roku box, but speaking at an investor conference in London, Britt outlined who else exactly TWC is talking to:
"You should assume we're talking to everyone who makes devices like this, whether it's Samsung smart TVs, Apple, Microsoft"
A bold statement, and will pique hopes that a TWC streaming application may be headed to the Apple TV sometime in the not-so-distant future. It also shouldn't come as too much of a surprise, since TWC already has apps for the iPhone and iPad, as well as a desktop player compatible with OS X.
Cable companies aren't exactly all in on Internet powered TV viewing, and Britt is something of an exception. And of course, we'd love to see more content available via the Apple TV. TWC customers; is this what you're looking for?
