From the web site:

Access the TCP Texts
ECCO-TCP Full text available to everyone
EEBO-TCP Full text available only to EEBO-TCP partners

My understanding is that eventually EEBO will be available too. They say "All of the TCP's work will be released the public domain [sic] for anyone to use." I am taking them at their word. I also hope their digitisation is better than their proof-reading!
