Time Warner starts streaming channels to computers and mobile devices today. Comcast, Dish Network, and Verizon customers who subscribe to regular cable TV services and already receive Time Warner programming like CNN and HLN, will now be able to view those channels (complete with ads) on their Internet-enabled devices. It's part of the TV Everywhere philosophy, a larger approach toward more TV on more devices. HBO did something similar a while back, so did ESPN. For now, the service is available only to those cable subscribers, so it does not represent the long-sought after Holy Grail of cable consumption: a la carte cable, where you cherry pick the stations you want. Perhaps some day we'll be able to buy our Comedy Central without paying for QVC, but it won't be today.
In other streaming news, looks like RIM will introduce streaming box similar to Apple TV.
