Time Warner Cable is in talks with Apple, Samsung, and Microsoft for streaming video deals similar to the one it has with set-top maker Roku, CEO Glenn Britt hinted at today's Bank of America/Merill Lynch Global Telecom and Media Conference. "You should assume we're talking to everyone who makes devices like this, whether it's Samsung smart TVs, Apple, Microsoft," said Britt. Time Warner brought a TWC TV app to Roku boxes in March, letting people watch live TV without a separate dedicated cable box.

The exact meaning of Britt's statement is unclear, but may imply that the Apple TV and/or the Xbox One will get live access to channels carried by Time Warner. Such work could also feed into Apple's plans for a dedicated TV set, but there has been little news on the device in recent months. Apple is thought to be having problems securing deals with content providers.
