Comcast has inked a deal with Time Warner to make an "unprecedented amount" of television programming available for streaming from nearly anywhere the Comcast empire touches.

To be clear, that's content produced by channels that Time Warner owns, such as TNT, TBS, CNN, HLN, truTV, Turner Classic Movies, Cartoon Network and Adult Swim.

Comcast subscribers will be able to access these new offerings (i.e. Conan, The Closer and House of Payne) on XfinityTV.com (pretty soon actually), Turner-owned websites, Comcast On Demand and mobile apps for the iPad, iPhone and Android-based devices later this year.

Hopefully Comcast doesn't take its sweet time with the mobile access as this is a pretty nifty and convenient option - especially for those who might be stuck in airports due to snow and other travel hazards.
