TW 'TV Everywhere' for Verizon

May 14, 2010

Time Warner and Verizon are making new television programming available online to Verizon’s FiOS TV customers. As Time Warner expands its online TV content, the company is partnering with Verizon to bring FiOS TV subscribers TV Everywhere.

Beginning in June, FiOS TV customers will automatically receive free, unlimited online access to popular content from Time Warner’s Turner networks – TNT and TBS – with plans to bring the same content to mobile devices in the near future. Verizon is working with a number of content providers to test and make available soon to FiOS customers a significant amount of additional online programming from a variety of content providers, including FOX News, CBS, MTV Networks, Hallmark Channel, Smithsonian Channel, the Tennis Channel and more. These channels will join other online video services already available to FiOS customers. These services include Time Warner’s HBO, which launched HBO Go to FiOS customers in February.

Once the new Turner content launches for FiOS subscribers, programmes will be available free of charge within 24 hours after an episode airs on live television. These programmes will be available with HD video quality for the consumer. Turner expects to launch additional networks during the remainder of the year.
