At CES Roku announced a new partnership with Time Warner Cable that brings a selection of TV channels to Roku devices for free.

Now Roku users can download the free TWC TV app to their streaming boxes to gain access to a selection of up to 300 TV channels on their HDTV. Like the iOS and Android versions of TWC TV the Roku app gives users access to live streams form channels like AMC, NBC, SyFy, FOX, CBS, ESPN, CNN and many more.

The new app will help save Time Warner Cable customers money by turning their Roku box into a something resembling a cable box. The app can’t access every channel the cable box can, but it doesn’t require any monthly fees that cable boxes do.

Looking at it this way, isn't it a cheaper way for folks to bring cable into a room without requiring an additional set top box rental?
