Description: The article is about time warner login. The author shows us how to set up the Roku application in your home. He also introduces the great features of Roku application and how to use it for watching your favourite channels on TV.
Today we’re going to tell you how to avoid having a rent any digital adapter box from Time Warner Cable but still get all of the stations that you subscribe to. The time warner is in the process of switching over to an all digital system,that’s a good thing for customers because a digital signal is better than the old analog signals.
One problem with that is that if you had your television set hooked up directly to a cable line to get your television picture,you won’t be able to do that anymore,you need a digital adapter that you can rent from time warner to get a signal,because time warner is going to encrypt these signals and you’re going to need the box to decrypt them. The time order is going to make those boxes available for free for its customers for one year,but after that you have to pay a monthly fee for them,now the going rate is three dollars and twenty-five cents.
A lot of people will use a full set-top box in which they can get hundreds of channels and many of them are in HD,but those cost about $12 a month. For the secondary TVs,many people may have three or four of them in a house,they often plug their television correctly into the cable line and get about 70 channels,this is something that they won’t be able to do anymore.
The price is three dollars and twenty-five cents,after a year you have to pay on each of your TVs if you’re renting one of their digital adapters. However time warner makes a application available called the TWC TV application,it is free of charge which allows you to get your television signals all of the television channels that you subscribe to without any box at all. You will get it through a streaming media device which hooks into your home’s Wi-Fi network.
Now this will work with a Xbox one and Xbox 360 Samsung,some Smart TVs and it also works on a streaming media device called a Roku. I have one right here,this is their Roku streaming stick model,here is a remote that comes with that. This costs for about fifty dollars,you can usually get it on sale for about $40 and they’re very easy to install. This goes into an HDMI jack on the back of your television set and then you can hook it in to your Wi-Fi system.
Let me show you how to install one of these and then I’ll show you how to install the TWC TV application on it. You can install your Roku into an HDMI jack on the back of your television like this,that’s it,now it’ll also come with a USB cable to help power the device and that simply plugs into a USB jack on the back,you can set it like that,that provides the power.
If for some reason your television does not have a USB jack maybe it’s an older television it doesn’t have one,you can also plug it into a wall socket. We’ve installed the Roku and then we can follow the on-screen instructions for connecting it to your home Wi-Fi network,if your network is password protected,make sure you have that password handy because the device is going to need that.
I’ve already got it hooked up on my television,I will set it here,then you need to change the video input of your TV to the HDMI Jack where you’ve connected the Roku. This is what it is going to look like once your Roku is installed,you’ll see some things listed on the left here,all of the applications that you have installed are going to be on the right.
Let me show you how to download and install the Time Warner Cable application,you are going to use your remote control,you can navigate down to the streaming channels,then down to search channels and then you’re going to start typing in time warner but you only have to use the letters T and I.
Then on the right you’ll see suggested applications that you can install,one of them is the Time Warner Cable application,you can navigate down to that,you can click on that and then it will come up. I already have it installed,so it does not show an option to install it to remove the channel,but if you haven’t installed it yet,you’re going to see an option to install.
You’ll click and install it. Now you you have to be a Time Warner Cable customer to use this,you’re going to have to have a Time Warner account. If you don’t have an online account with Time Warner,you can go to their website,it’s TWC.com/my services,you can sign up for it,you’ll get a username and a password. I already have it installed,let me show you what you have installed. This is the home page for the Roku navigate over to your applications,you can navigate down to the time warner cable TV application and click on that.
It’s going to take a few seconds to load again,this is a streaming device so it’s getting its signal not from a cable line but from the internet. It comes up. On the left there are a few options for how you want to navigate to the particular channel that you want to watch,but now in this case I’ve got HD TV on here,it’s going to take a few seconds to load but there it is.
This is a digital signal,it’ll be in high-definition,it won’t look too much different than what you would get if you had a digital adapter or set-top box. Now Time Warner has made this convenient. If you navigate fine,on the left here you’ll see these various filters and those make it easy to switch around to various channels,you can go to all channels and then switch back over to here and navigate.
These are all the channels that you subscribe to including any premium channels like HBO or you can get them more specific,you can go to your recently watched channels,you can view only movie channels whether those be premium channels or non premium movie channels,you can navigate by TV shows or by sports.
Its ESPN,I’ll navigate over to that. Now one feature is that you’ll see this up here on next. If you want to know what’s coming up next,you can get that as well,it’ll show you here. If you want to get a full guide for what’s coming up,that is available as well. Let me go back here.
Another category is broadcasters,those are your local broadcast stations like ABC and CBS and PBS and NBC. There is one for all of your premium channel. You can break it down by kid’s channels,news channels,lifestyle channels,music and Latino channels as well.
Now one difference is when you load this up,you will notice a slight delay,if you have a cable box ,let me show you the the delight. Here comes an ESPN HD,it’ll take a few seconds to load,if you’ve got a a good Wi-Fi connection that should not be a problem.
That is the main difference between using the Time Warner Cable application and using a digital adapter or a set-top box,it takes a few seconds. But other than that it’s quite convenient and it saves you a little bit of money along the way.
Now one other aspect to this is that’s a little bit different than a cable box,you cannot record a show with this,there’s no way to record a streaming device. However you have access to on-demand channels ,I’ll show you that. You can call up movies and television shows on demand as you wish. That take a few seconds to call up,in that way you don’t necessarily have to record.
One other nice feature of this is the search function,if you go on here,you can type in again using your remote,you can type in the name of any television show or actor that you want and it will call up a listing of shows or movies at that person or having that title is available on,that makes it convenient to find any shows that you want.
