Time Warner TV Everywhere
March 3, 2009
Time Warner is developing an initiative dubbed TV Everywhere that will allow viewers to watch networks such as CNN, Cartoon Network and TNT online – as long as they can prove they subscribe to cable, satellite or a telecom TV service.
“If you want to watch your favourite TV network or shows through broadband on any device – PCs or mobile – you can do it as long as you subscribe to any multichannel provider,” said Time Warner CEO Jeffrey Bewkes, adding that TV Everywhere could be ready for testing sometime this year. “It’s a natural extension of the existing model.”
The move comes as Time Warner divests its own cable division.
