the TWC app and cable

Postby knuckle » Wed May 15, 2013 7:35 am

Hi Endless and board members.

most of the major cable companies offer streaming of their services over the web,IOS and Android for their subscribers -- but to date only TWC offers an app to veiw on roku.Could a dev create a channel to bring these services to roku using the same login credentials a subscriber must use to watch via android,ios and the web?

Not likely without the participation of the providers. Most (all?) of these services require a secure dialog between the user and their cable/satellite provider in order to establish their eligibility. It's not likely that a third party could implement that without the private encryption keys needed for that communication.

Thats a shame....if one really wants to see how vocal roku owners can be about their favorite streamers drop by Xfinity's forums or better yet redbox by verizon's facebook -- redbox claims that they very much want to be on roku but got their panties in a bunch when I dropped names of devs that could have them up and running quickley
