A spokesperson for the cable giant tells The New York Times it will suggest that its users give streaming startup Aereo a try if Time Warner Cable loses access to CBS programming.
A showdown between the broadcast network and the cable provider over fees could cause programming to go dark in some of the country's biggest cities, which would be good for few but Amazon and Aereo.
The Wi-Fi hotspots are part of a partnership between the cable companies and New York City that includes a $10 million investment fund for Wi-Fi deployment in parks and public spaces.
A new report says Apple's trying to woo cable companies on ad-skipping technology for TV programs.
Several companies put in initial bids to buy the video streaming service, and now it's looking like both DirecTV and Time Warner also made follow-up offers.
The interactive TV service began life in the mid-'90s as WebTV, one of the first set-top box services to offer Internet access via television sets.
The Apple set-top box would get a wealth of new channels, and its first mega cache of live ones, if it reaches a deal with the cable provider.
With the surge of Android-based game consoles like the GamePop, reports suggest Google is looking to make its own console. Also, Netflix gets silly with suggestions from Max.
The service, carrying Bravo, CNN, Comedy Central and more, will be available to Xbox Live Gold members when the application launches later this summer.
Users of Apple's set-top box who want to watch a game of baseball followed by a "Game of Thrones" are in luck. HBO and ESPN apps are now available, but you need a pay-TV subscription for most content.
The cable industry says it is more than ready to compete with Google Fiber, but adds that consumers are nowhere near ready for gigabit speeds. Is it cable's pricing schemes that are holding back adoption?
