Panasonic Offering Time Warner Cable IPTV and DVR Access App

With IPTV coming more popular with AT&T U-Verse, Verizon FiOS, and more, at CES 2012 Panasonic is showing off TWC streaming TV channels with a new application. Panasonic is demonstrating TWC with DLNA(Digital Living Network Alliance) streaming access to anything stored in a DVR on the same network. The app will be able to work on 2012 and 2011 Panasonic HDTV's but there is no word of a release date. No one is clear on whether cable companies are finally going to make the full jump toward IPTV yet or anytime in the near future. This technology is going to be launching on more platforms later this year, and may fully remove set-top boxes.
