Time Warner and Comcast Corp. are pushing ahead with a plan to make big cable network shows available online to existing cable subscribers shortly after their first airing. The two industry giants unveiled a set of guiding principles for what TW has dubbed “TV Everywhere” Wednesday morning and announced a national technical trial of what Comcast will name its “On Demand Online” service starting with 5,000 customers in July. The non-exclusive service is free of additional charges to Comcast subscribers. TW and Comcast hope the deal will bring other content and distribution players to the table to adopt the approach.
