ABC may have gotten the jump on other TV channels in bringing live programming to mobile devices, but Time Warner won't be far behind. The company has announced plans to offer live TBS and TNT streams online beginning this summer. Like ABC's implementation, only pay-TV subscribers will get access when the time comes. That trend, which is bad news for cord cutters, is expected to continue when Fox and NBC eventually roll out their own TV Everywhere offerings within the next year or two. "Starting this summer, subscribers will be able to watch TBS and TNT live — anytime, anywhere, on multiple devices," said Steve Koonin, president of Turner Entertainment Networks, during 2013's upfront presentations. Both channels have released apps across iOS and Android that provide on-demand clips and full episodes.
