November 07, 2011, New York, NY – Time Warner Cable today announced the addition of 37 popular Spanish-language national and international channels to its already robust programming offering on the TWCable TV™ app for the Apple iPad™. The channels are available on the iPad at no additional charge to Time Warner Cable video customers that subscribe to those channels, including El Paquetazo® digital cable subscribers.
This offering gives those subscribers the ability to watch even more of their favorite Spanish-language networks on their iPad from any room in the home. Popular networks such as Discovery Español, CNN Español, Boomerang Español, Caracol, and Disney XD Español, will be added to TWCable TV™. These networks will join the five Spanish-language channels already available: Galavision, Gol TV, History en Español, La Familia Cosmovision, and Mun2. The programming lineup available will vary by region.
”We are tremendously proud to be able to provide such a significant expansion in our Spanish-language channel offering for our iPad app. This is a big step forward in our commitment to offering the best possible entertainment experience to our customers,” said Jeffrey Hirsch, Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, Residential Services at Time Warner Cable.
El Paquetazo®, available in New York, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas, Los Angeles and San Diego, offers a mixture of more than 140 English and Spanish-language channels including news, music, entertainment, sports and family programming as well as Lo Mejor On Demand®. For those living in the New York City area, El Paquetazo® also includes NY1 Noticias®, the only local Spanish-language news channel operating 24-hours, seven days a week. Many of the channels that are being added are also part of Time Warner Cable’s Nuestra Tele and Mas Canales tiers.
This latest enhancement comes after Time Warner Cable’s announcements earlier this year of the launch of TWCable TV™ 2.0, which offers customers the ability to use the iPad as a remote control and to program and manage their DVRs; and the launch of TWCable TV™ 2.5 which added search, parental control & closed captioning. Customers can download the app from the App Store, launch it, log in and scroll through the channel lineup to select preferred programming.
