Earlier this year, when Time Warner Cable had a dispute with CBS, the CBS-owned local stations, and national outlets like Showtime, were off the air.
Now, the relationship seems to be back on track.
Earlier this week Time Warner Cable announced the launch of Showtime Networks’ authentication service, Showtime Anytime. Time Warner Cable and Bright House Networks customers who subscribe to Showtime will have free, unlimited on demand access to hundreds of hours of the network's programming. The feature also includes live broadcast of both the East and West Coast feeds on any computer, iPhone, iPad, Android phones and tablets and the Kindle Fire in the U.S.
"We're excited to be able to add Showtime Anytime to our growing TV Everywhere offering," said Mike Angus, the senior VP and GM of video for Time Warner Cable. "Our customers now have easy access to their favorite Showtime programs anytime, anywhere."
Users will be able to use the service to watch current and past seasons of "Homeland," Ray Donovan," "Web Therapy," other shows and sports specials.
"We are very pleased to have Time Warner Cable come on board as a Showtime Anytime partner," said Tom Christie, the president of distribution, business development and network operations for Showtime. "This is a significant milestone in our efforts to make Showtime Anytime available to 100 percent of the multichannel video universe."
