Just in time for Monday night's Giants vs. Cowboys showdown, Time Warner Cable customers will have free access to an ESPN online simulcast and to an exclusive new sports outlet, ESPN3.com.
If you already get ESPN in your TWC cable package, you can go ahead and register online for Time Warner Cable's My Services (here's another reason you should register for My Services) and you'll have access as soon as the streaming begins on October 25th. On the 25th, you can also register at ESPNnetworks.com or ESPN3.com.
The extra ESPN access is part of last month's contract agreement between Time Warner Cable and the owner of ESPN, The Walt Disney Co.
ESPN3.com is ESPN's live sports broadband service with more than 3,500 live, global sports events. According to a Time Warner Cable press release, ESPN3.com viewers can toggle between up to 20 events in a main viewing window. Recently completed events will be archived and available for on-demand replay.
Time Warner is also working on providing online internet and mobile device access to channels ESPN2, ESPNU, ESPN Goal Line and ESPN Buzzer Beater.
