AT&T expands TV Everywhere play with Turner Network deal

AT&T (NYSE:T) still hasn't managed to get live TV programming over to an iPad, unlike its rivals Cablevision and Time Warner Cable, but the doesn't mean the telco isn't still working to expand the amount of content it offers through its year-old TV Everywhere initiative, U-verse Online.

Cartoon Network's Adult Swim content including Aqua Teen Hunger Force (pictured) and Robot Chicken will be available on U-verse Online.

The company today said it had signed a deal with Turner Networks that gives U-verse subscribers access to content from five of Turner's networks, including TBS, TNT, truTV, Cartoon Network and Adult Swim within 24 hours after an episode airs.

Popular content includes such shows as The Closer, Southland, Meet the Browns, Robot Chicken, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Ben 10: Ultimate Alien, Generator Rex, Hot Pursuit and Operation Repo.

Last year, hoping to gain some momentum in the bubbling over-the-top space, AT&T rebranded and expanded U-verse Online, offering a bucketful of content including archived ad catch-up episodes of TV shows, VOD and pay-per-view events.

The service is available on PCs and some mobile devices.

"Our content lineup continues to expand on every screen, and the compelling content from Turner is a great addition to U-verse Online," said Dan York, president of content at AT&T.
