TWC app will no longer stream tv - TWC TV and Apps

I just wanted to register my displeasure with the fact that as of today, the TWC app requires ios 7 in order to stream tv. I have an original ipad 1, which I pretty much only use to stream tv, so i can carry it with me from one room to another. The ipad 1 cannot be upgraded beyond ios 5.1.1. so i can no longer use my device to watch tv. I don't understand why devices that work just fine are deliberately rendered obsolete.
Not a happy camper tonight.

This question is about "TWC app will no longer stream tv", with Time Warner Cable TV and apps.
