    Time Warner Cable, Viacom resolve spat over streaming TV iPad app

    Time Warner Cable and Viacom have agreed to set aside a legal dispute over an iPad app that streams television content within customers' homes.


    The two companies released a joint statement on Wednesday (via TechCrunch) announcing that Viacom content would be coming back to the TWC TV app:

    Viacom and Time Warner Cable have agreed to resolve their pending litigations. All of Viacomís 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 Viacomís 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.

    TWC pulled several channels, including MTV and FX, from its iPad app in late March after complaints from the major media companies. Viacom took the most umbrage over the app and filed a lawsuit against Time Warner, which quickly filed a countersuit.

    Viacom accused TWC of trying to "unilaterally change the terms" of their contract, while TWC argued that the app simply turned the iPad into another TV screen in the home.
