Both Time Warner Cable and Viacom have agreed to set aside a legal dispute over an iPad app that streamed television content within customers’ homes. The two companies released a joint statement on Wednesday announcing that Viacom content would be coming back to the TWC TV app. The announcement stated the following:
Viacom and Time Warner Cable have agreed to resolve their pending litigations. All of Viacom’s programming will now be available to Time Warner Cable subscribers for in-home viewing via internet protocol-enabled devices such as iPads and Time Warner Cable will continue to carry Viacom’s Country Music Television (CMT) programming. In reaching the settlement agreement, Time Warner Cable and Viacom were also able to resolve other unrelated business matters to their mutual satisfaction. Neither side is conceding its original legal position or will have further comment.
Regardless, the situation is resolved and for those of you who use the Time Warner Cable iPad app at home, you’ll be able to enjoy the channels returning to the list.
