Time Warner & Viacom Coming to Terms, TV To return to iPad App
If you love watching TV or movies on your iPad, then you are likely aware that Viacom and Time Warner have been fighting over content (Time Warner pulled several channels from their initial offering including MTV and FC in late March). Now, that two are finally coming to terms–which means channels should be returning sooner than later.
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.
