Do you ever wish you could get rid of your cable box altogether and just watch everything through one device? If you’re a Time Warner customer, you may soon be able to do just that. Time Warner recently admitted that many of its customers hate set top boxes, so the company is working on making your life set top box free. Time Warner customers can already stream live TV through devices like the Xbox 360 and Roku, but these devices are only secondary units and require a Time Warner box in the house. Time Warner is working on ways to make boxes like the Roku your primary device and eliminate set top boxes. It’d require you to subscribe to Time Warner for both TV and Internet to verify that you’re watching channels you pay for. It’s a ways off for now, and Time Warner says don’t expect anything for about a year. But if you hate set top boxes and want to rid your life of them altogether, you may soon get your wish.
