Optimum TV app for iOS

Optimum is one of the big players in the cable TV business in New York. The company not only offers cable TV, but also offers iOS apps for those who are interested. This means you can watch all your favorite TV shows and movies on your iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad (iPad being my favorite choice as the display size is the best among the three for watching videos). The company also offers on demand video services on the iOS app.

But now, there is a new finding. It is found out that the latest, updated app of Optimum for iOS does not work on jailbroken iOS devices. I’m not telling that it wont install, it will get installed from the App Store for sure, but you will not be able to use the app. You will get the error saying that there is some problem with the unrecognized and unregistered version of iOS.

One of the members of EverythingiCafe reports how he faced this problem when he tried to launch the app and use it on his jailbroken iDevice. The error is said to be due to an ‘unauthorized and modified’ version of iOS. The excerpt from his report is given below:

“I have a jailbroken IPhone 4 with IOS 4.3.3. I recently downloaded the new Optimum TV App from the app store. When I log in with my optimum ID, it tells me that it has detected that I’m using an unauthorized and modified version of the Apple operating system. It goes on to say that I must update to the current IOS to use this App. I’m definitely not a newbie to the jail break world and have never had this happen with any other app.”

This is not the first time something like this has happened. Remember the Skype app problem? So, did you face the problem?
