I reported about my problems trying (and failing) to use Time Warner’s new TWCable TV iPad app yesterday.

As for me? Having spoken with five friendly Time Warner support staff members, I took the advice of the last person I spoke with and used the online chat support after it came back online. I was told the service is not available in my area (Hawaii). I wish that information had been available to the various people who spent time trying to help me. It would have also saved me 45 minutes on the phone.
