Comcast, Time Warner intro long-term partnership
Comcast has landed a partnership with Time Warner on Tuesday that will bring shows and movies to Comcast On Demand customers soon after they first air. XfinityTV subscribers will also have access to the streaming content at no additional cost, with content from channels such as TNT, TBS, CNN, HLN, truTV, Turner Classic Movies, Cartoon Network and Adult Swim. Those with Turner's apps for the iPhone, iPad and Android-based devices, as well as web users, will also be able to access this content.
The multi-year agreement will launch later this year, though exactly when hasn't been revealed. Comcast already offers over 150,000 online video offerings, including 25,000 On Demand selections, 6,000 of which are offered in HD.
The Internet content still requires having existing service with Comcast to work.
