But still not with HBO.

cnn_tveverywhere.jpgTucked in the news about Turner Broadcasting System’s marketing campaign for TNT and TBS authenticated online services was the tidbit that Cablevision Systems customers can now access full episodes from those networks the day after they air (see Turner Tunes Up ‘TV Everywhere’ Marketing Push).

In fact, in addition to TNT and TBS, Optimum iO TV subscribers now can sign in to access live programming from CNN and HLN, as well as Adult Swim, Cartoon Network and TruTV. Separately through a deal with Fox, Cablevision offers access to Speed2.

Cablevision evidently still has not come to an agreement with HBO, a Time Warner Inc. sibling of Turner, as the MSO is not listed on the HBO GO services. But stay tuned.

Meanwhile, Time Warner Cable remains a no-show on any of Time Warner Inc.’s TV Everywhere offerings (see TCA: HBO Execs Still Hoping Time Warner, Cablevision Go For HBO Go).

Turner is using the Adobe Pass authentication product for the TV Everywhere services (see Adobe: ‘TV Everywhere’ Log-In Service Covers 90% Of U.S. Pay TV Market).
