Times Wire Reports

Time Warner Cable Inc. will begin testing a system that lets TV subscribers watch cable shows on the Internet at no extra cost.

The firm said it had signed on a dozen programmers. Time Warner Cable follows Comcast Corp., its larger rival, in letting a test group of subscribers watch shows online.

In the trial, which will start in a few months, Time Warner Cable will give about 5,000 subscribers access to online shows.
