As promised, the cable provider on Tuesday updated its Android app, bringing live streaming television to devices running the most recent version of Google's mobile operating system.
TWC TV 2.0, which is available now via Google Play, lets users watch selected live cable channels, including Bravo, the Food Network, and CNBC, on their Android 4.0 smartphone or tablet through their home wireless network.
The app does not support rooted devices, however.
Users who experience any glitches following the upgrade should try uninstalling the app, and then reinstalling it from Google Play, Jeff Simmermon, Director of Digital Communication for Time Warner Cable, wrote in a blog post Tuesday.
"While we now offer live video to users with Ice Cream Sandwich on their Android devices, we have no control over whether or not your particular device has Ice Cream Sandwich yet," Simmermon wrote. "Once your device upgrades, you’re off to the races."
Currently, only about 3% of Google's Android-based devices are running Ice Cream Sandwich.
The updated Operating System (OS) made its debut on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus in mid-December 2011.
Since then, only a handful of devices have debuted with Android Ice Cream Sandwich, while handset manufacturers have been hustling to upgrade existing smartphones.
Time Warner Cable in December 2011 released the TWC TV app for Android phones and tablets, and promised to add live TV with the expanded rollout of Ice Cream Sandwich.
The updated OS is the only version of Android that provides the "security and stability necessary to distribute video over our private network," Simmermon said earlier this month.
Time Warner released a live TV app for the Apple's iPhone in late January 2012.
The live TV iPad app went live in March 2011.
