OPTIMUM FOR iPAD by CSC Holdings, LLC. Depending on where you live you may have seen the commercials for this free app. It is amazing. It enables you to not only use your iPad (or iPhone) as a remote control for your cable box (even when away from home) and a channel guide, it also turns your iPad into a TV to watch live programming anywhere in your home. Even better, you can now watch your iPad TV for hours hands free with FLOTE. It’s enough to switch over the cable!
