I can't find a single news article on this, but when I turned on my Roku 3 today I discovered that the TWC TV app has a brand new interface. It is very slick and much easier to navigate than the previous one (or any I've seen on a cable box). Basically, the guide is a transparent overlay that shows on the left side of the screen (like the iPad app does), however, if you hit the left arrow on the remote with the guide up you get categories like sports, news, etc and can quickly jump to different sets of channels. Also, now you can view the guide without having to exit whatever you are watching.

Overall, a welcome upgrade but I'm still waiting to see what Apple's interface looks like when TWC TV hits the Apple TV this fall (as rumored).
