Time Warner Cable announced Thursday it is working with a number of networks to provide its customers with more online access to programming.

The networks involved in the upcoming trials of TV Everywhere include TBS, TNT, HBO, CBS, Syfy, BBC America, AMC, WE tv, Sundance Channel, Discovery and the Smithsonian Channel.

Last month Comcast began a similar test offering content from HBO and Cinemax online.

Time Warner Cable customers who subscribe to a video package containing the networks will have online access to the programming at no additional charge.

The programming offered though the TV Everywhere trials will include shows currently unavailable online and others that will be made available on the Internet more quickly following their original broadcasts than they currently are.

"TV Everywhere is an all-around win for those of us who love television, said Glenn Britt, Time Warner Cable chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer.

It will give our customers more control over content and allow them greater access to programs they are already paying for, while enhancing the distributors’ and networks’ robust business model that encourages the creation of great content."

Time Warner Cable and the participating networks will launch the TV Everywhere trials in select markets over the next few months. The trials initially will reach about 5,000 customers. The company is working to include other networks and has plans to expand its service to more customers.
