Internet TV streaming is only getting bigger. As it does, cord cutters are giving up on conventional TV service contracts in favor of services to which they can subscribe to monthly and not have to pay hundreds of dollars in setup fees. It just makes sense to save your money.
Cable giants like HBO are changing their business models to keep up. Cablevision is the first internet service provider to distribute the HBO Now online TV streaming service, and soon it will also allow broadband customers to stream CBS and Showtime as well, which is great news for customers.
Cablevision broadband customers will be able to stream CBS and Showtime over the internet without having a pay for a TV subscription. The deal is part of a multi-year agreement between the two companies and also renews Showtime, CBS Sports Network and Smithsonian Channel on Cablevision’s TV service.
“Optimum Online” customers will be able to stream these channels online, including Showtime’s new standalone online service and CBS All Access.
Cablevision says that pricing and availability details will be revealed later, so we will have to wait for that info to come very soon if you are interested in what Cablevision is offering.
