- Search – search TV listings by title or episode name.
- Remote Control of set-top – the ability to use the Android tablet as a set-top box remote control, choosing a program from the grid guide and tuning the DVR or set-top box to the selected channel.
- DVR Manager – the ability to remotely schedule or change upcoming DVR recordings.
The app has been certified to run on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 or Motorola Xoom, but is designed to run on any Honeycomb (Android 3.x) tablet. Customers can download TWC TV 1.0 from the Android Market, launch it, log in and scroll through the interactive program guide to select preferred programming.
