Top Cable TV iPad Apps to Watch Live TV on iPad Mini

Watching Live TV on the iPad is a wish of many owners, and the app store offers a number of ways to watch live TV from network and cable channel. Here we list top cable TV apps allow you to watch TV right on your iPads.

TWCable TV for iPad (Free) – If you are a Time Warner Cable customer, you can watch live TV on your iPad with this free app. The TWCable TV for iPad app delivers a wide array of channels to your iPad. The app has had a checkered past, losing access to Viacom channels like Comedy Central shortly after launch. The app has added numerous channels since then, but is still quite short of the full lineup.The app also lets you see a 7 day TV schedule and if you have a compatible DVR, you can schedule recordings.

Comcast Xfinity (Free) – Comcast’s XFINITY TV APP for the iPad doesn’t deliver live streaming TV, but it is still a nice cable TV iPad app because it delivers a feature missing from the TWCable app — access to on demand shows.The app also allows you to control your TV ,change channels, search the On Demand listings and schedule your DVR recordings directly from your device. Besides, the AnyPlay feature turns your iPad into a secondary cable box and lets you watch any of your channels while you’re on your home network.

Optimum for iPad (Free) Cablevision subscriber can view live TV with this Optimum for iPad app. Optimum for iPad may be the most full featured free iPad app. On top of watching all of your subscribed to channels live, you also get access to On Demand content (including rentals) and you can use your device as a remote control, to manage your DVR or as a channel guide.

EyeTV for iPad($4.99) – EyeTV 3.4 app for iPad and iPhone let you watch live TV and change channels via a Wi-Fi or 3G connection anywhere. The ability to remotely add a program to be recorded without accessing a website is convenient addition to the latest EyeTV version. The bad is that you still have to encode your recording to iPad/iPhone format before you can stream it. Streaming of live TV is steppy at times, but the recorded programs stream very well. Overall I would say at $4.99, Eye TV 3.4 is a very cool app to download if you have EyeTV on your Mac

Well, with these above apps, subscribers will love to be able to stream their shows to the iPad Mini. If you’re using it share your experiences in our comments section.
