September 6, 2010
From Colin Mann in Amsterdam
Time Warner Cable and Bright House Networks subscribers will be able to watch live sports from three ESPN channels — ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPNU — online and on mobile Internet devices, marking a new front for ESPN on “TV Everywhere” style distribution.
The TV Everywhere component is part of a larger agreement among TWC, Disney/ABC Television Group and ESPN. TWC and Bright House broadband subscribers — who also subscribe to a cable TV package with ESPN — will also have access to ESPN3.com, the sports programmer’s live sports portal that carries 3,500 events annually.
