When the New York Giants take on the Dallas Cowboys, Time Warner Cable customers will not only be able to watch the game on their television set but will also be able to access the game through their Internet connection. As part of a recently announced agreement between ESPN and Time Warner Cable, beginning October 25, Time Warner Cable customers who receive ESPN as part of their video subscription will have access to a live simulcast of ESPN on their computers as well as access to ESPN3.com
To preregister, Time Warner Cable customers can go now to http://myservices.timewarnercable.com
. On the 25th, customers can also go directly to ESPNnetworks.com
to register or sign in and view the programming.
At launch, the new authenticated service will give Time Warner Cable subscribers the opportunity to watch ESPN’s linear network online. In the near future, access to ESPN2, ESPNU, ESPN Goal Line and ESPN Buzzer Beater will also be offered through this same process, as well as on other Internet enabled devices such as mobile phones and tablets. Consumers can access the channels through a centralized web site, ESPNnetworks.com.
ESPN3.com, ESPN's live sports broadband service, will also be available to Time Warner Cable subscribers who get ESPN through their video subscription. ESPN3.com gives fans a 24/7 online destination that delivers more than 3,500 live, global sports events annually.
