Time Warner Replaces Cable Box with Roku in Internet TV Trial

Internet customers in New York City can now sign up for Time Warner Cable’s streaming TV trial. According to Engadget, “customers can get access to the TWC TV app on a variety of devices without adding a [cable] box or having a tech come out. During the trial, testers will get a free Roku 3 player, and the cheapest plan (with channels like ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC and TBS among the 20+ included) starts at just $10 per month on a 12 month contract.” A second package including Showtime and Starz is available for $20, while a premium $50 package adds Disney, ESPN and others. For now, the trial is only available for TWC customers in NYC.
