I can't seem to find a definitive answer to this question so here it goes. Is the TWC app available on the Insignia/Sharp/TCL/Haier Roku TVs or is it only available on the separate Roku devices? I'm considering adding a tv in the garage, mainly for DVDs, but if the app is available it would be a nice bonus. The wifi signal is strong enough if I decide to go that route but I'm also considering wiring for ethernet (I'm fully aware of the pros and cons of wired vs. wireless).
FYI...Samsung is not an option.

@Boz have you used the app on one of these TVs? Curious to hear some hands on about how it performs, ease of use, functionality...stuff like that.

I tried to find the spot where I post a message but could not find it. My Roku's (4) will get the TWC channels BUT.....within 5 minutes the channels get blurry (enough to hurt your eyes!!) and it buffers constantly. When I first installed the TWC app, several months ago everything was great.....now it's all gone south. I have called and always get the same response...."We are working on that" - seriously???? I don't think you are! The first thing they want to do is blame my internet connection and when I tell them that Netflix, Amazon and Hulu work just fine then they say "we are working on that" ..... I'd like an honest answer and an honest attempt at fixing the problem.

I have a new Roku TV with the TWC app and it's very buggy. Today it's especially so: Periods of frequent buffering, inability to start the app (hangs up on authentication), multiple error messages, hangs when changing channels. I have called TWC tech support who resent a signal to my modem, directed me to unplug/replug the power and cable, delete and reinstall the app, and it's still buffering and hanging up when trying to change channels.
The rest of the apps on the TV are working fine, it's only the TWC app that's problematic. Is there an update coming soon? The TWC saleperson recommended the Roku TV precisely because of the TWC app and I'm more than frustrated.
