Cablevision Systems Corp. (NYSE: CVC) today announced that iO TV customers can now access full-length TBS, TNT, CNN, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, and truTV shows on the Web and on their iPad, iPhone and iPod touch devices, wherever they are. The availability of Turner TV Everywhere, which includes live-streaming of CNN and HLN, enhances the customer experience that began with the popular Optimum App, which delivers the full cable television experience on these devices in the home, including more than 300 channels of live TV and thousands of titles of video on demand.
iO TV customers can access Turner programming in two ways, via iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch apps (available in Apple’s App Store, free of charge) for TBS, TNT, CNN, Cartoon Network Adult Swim, and truTV (available later this month), as well as on Turner’s network branded websites TBS.com, TNT.tv, CNN.com, CartoonNetwork.com, AdultSwim.com, and truTV.com, using their Optimum ID and any broadband connection.
“Cablevision broke new ground with the launch of our Optimum apps, which allow our customers to experience their full cable television service on a variety of devices in the home,” said John Trierweiler, Cablevision’s executive vice president of product management. “We’re pleased to be working with Turner to provide additional out-of-the-home and Web viewing options for our customers as well, offering the ability to experience the cable television service they have already paid for on new devices in a range of settings.”
Turner TV Everywhere provides access to programming such as The Closer, Adventure Time, CONAN, Childrens Hospital, Leverage and AC 360, 24 hours after the show premieres on the linear channel. iO TV customers will need their Optimum ID and password to access the content on both the apps and the websites. Customers can go to Optimum.net to create an Optimum ID. Specific information on current Optimum IDs in use in the home, as well as detailed instructions on how to establish a new one, can also be found on iO TV channel 910.
