Quick Look: Time Warner Cable (TWC) lets TWC customers, with a TV subscription at the Standard level or higher, access all of TWC's channels over the Roku. However, subscribers can access this content only from the location where their subscription cable is installed. Sorry, you can't take TWC with you when you travel. And don't expect DVR capabilities - pausing and rewinding aren't supported, and you'll only get programs in real time.
Why, you ask, would you need TWC on Roku? Well, many people have a room where their TV doesn't have a set-top box. With the Roku and a WiFi connection, you can access your TWC channels from any room in the house. If you aren't a TWC subscriber, though, don't bother installing this channel. If you are a TWC subscriber, you'll need your TWC ID. Don't have one? Register here with the ZIP Code and phone number associated with the address where you receive your TWC service. You'll also need your account number and 4-digit Customer Code from your billing statement.
If you're a TWC subscriber who also receives HBO, then you can also get HBO GO on your Roku. TWC was one of the last holdouts to allow its customers access to HBO GO, but relented in mid-2012.
