Comcast (Nasdaq: CMCSA) and Time Warner's Turner Broadcasting have widened the TV Everywhere relationship they began in 2009 to include live streaming over the Internet later this year.
The usual array of Turner shows and movies will now be available to Comcast subscribers across multiple platforms that spread beyond the TV. A Comcast news release said the content would be available "shortly after initial airing" to Comcast customers via on-demand, on "applicable Turner Web sites and Xfinity and Turner-branded iPad, iPhone and Android-based tablet and phone applications."
Elsewhere in the world of iPads, Rovi has launched what it calls a "free, mobile television listing iPad application (What's on TV)" that lets users browse and search local TV listings by using metadata available through APIs in the Rovi media cloud.
