Time Warner and Verizon announced today at The Cable Show 2010 that the companies are making new television programming available online to Verizon’s FiOS TV customers.

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.

Time Warner Inc. Chairman and CEO Jeff Bewkes said, “Verizon has been a great partner as we’ve explored new ways for their subscribers to access and interact with our popular networks. TNT and TBS will now be available online to FiOS subscribers at no added cost. In less than a year, we’ve been able to launch our vision of delivering TV Everywhere to nearly 20 million customers nationwide.”

Once the new Turner content launches for FiOS subscribers, programs like “The Closer,” “Southland,” “Leverage,” Lopez Tonight” and more will be available free of charge within 24 hours after an episode airs on live television. These programs will be available with HD video quality for the consumer. Turner expects to launch additional networks during the remainder of the year.

FiOS customers who subscribe to both FiOS TV and FiOS Internet will be able to watch the programs on their personal computers or laptops -“ at home or away -“ using any broadband connection. Using their Verizon Online user names and passwords, FiOS customers will be able to access the online programming at either or soon-to-be launched TNT and TBS websites.
