Time Warner Cable Tests Replacing Your Cable Box With a Roku - by Nick Statt/ Business/ Entertainment/ Tech/ Web/ The Verge/ theverge.com

"Time Warner Cable customers in New York City and New Jersey will be able to use a Roku box in place of their traditional cable box, the company announced today. The trial service is an extension of the company's TWC TV app, which lets subscribers access live television on mobile devices and smart TVs while on their home's Wi-Fi network. The goal is to transition cable from a box customers lease from TWC and onto internet-powered apps and devices.

Reports last month stated that TWC's internet TV option may be an over-the-top streaming service, potentially available on any internet-connected screen. Company spokesperson Andrew Russell said today in a blog post this is not true, at least for now. "The Roku trial is not an OTT (over-the-top) product or streaming service, like Netflix or Hulu," he wrote. "The majority of content will be available only in the subscriber’s home. And it’s the same TV and same packages delivered to the home today over our secure network — you just don’t need a set-top box to watch it."..."
