Time Warner Cable and Viacom Quit Fighting, Streaming Coming Back to The iPad

Great news! Time Warner Cable and Viacom have decided to fix their previous legal disputes. This story comes from Viacom Blog, stating that if you’re subscribed to Time Warner Cable, you will soon be able to enjoy Viacom programming again. The two companies have released the following joint statement.

“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.”

Channels like MTV and Comedy Central will become available on the iPad. New York City will also be gaining access to TV Land HD and BET HD, so keep your eyes open. The content will become available over the next couple weeks.

This isn’t the first company that has had issues with content streaming on the iPad, so it’s good to see them making progress that will benefit the consumer. I’m all for anything that allows the iPad to have a wider selection of media at your fingertips.
