Time Warner Cable is working to add local stations to its iPad streaming app, allowing customers to watch broadcast shows on the devices anywhere in their homes. The cable operator’s offering includes a slew of cable networks, but no access to TV stations.
Time Warner Cable and Viacom Inc. have put the guns down in their legal fight over the former’s plans to stream the latter’s content on iPads. The two companies, which filed suit against each other in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York in April, told the court they have entered into a standstill agreement which essentially means they are putting the legal battle on hold while they try to resolve the dispute amicably.
Time Warner Cable, under fire from some in the television industry for its iPad streaming app that offers several dozen TV channels, says it has done nothing wrong.
