If you want cable TV without the cable box, Time Warner Cable may have something for you soon. Sources tell Engadget that starting Monday, Time Warner Cable will be beta testing a TV service for its internet-only customers living in New York City. Similar to Sky’s Now TV in the UK, while it will support a number of hardware platforms, the plan is to focus on streaming TV through Roku’s set-top boxes, and users will get a Roku 3 for free. On top of their internet service, customers can pick up a “Starter” TV package for an extra $10 per month. Another option that adds Showtime and Starz will be available for $20 per month, and for those who want all the usual channels, just without a cable box, a Standard option with Showtime and Starz costs $50 per month.
