Cablevision Launches Live TV Streaming on iPhone, iPod Touch

Cablevision has recently launched the Optimum application for iPhone and iPod touch users. This innovative app enables subscribers to stream live television directly on their iPhones or iPod touches within their homes.

Additionally, the app provides access to On Demand content, allowing users to enjoy movies and shows on their devices.

Beyond streaming, the app offers functionality as a remote control for your cable box, with capabilities such as scheduling DVR recordings directly from your iPhone or iPod. This release follows the earlier introduction of the Cablevision’s iPad app in April.

Both the iPhone and iPad applications are available for free, though they require an active Cablevision subscription to function.
