Time Warner Cable And Viacom Sue Each Other Over iPad Streaming?

Time Warner Cable and Viacom have filed lawsuits against each other over an iPad application that lets users stream live TV. Both companies have asked a New York judge to decide whether Time Warner is able to distribute channels on its cable network through the Apple tablet, instead of a television, without negotiating extra deals with cable networks. Time Warner pulled 11 channels from the application after complaints from parent companies. The channels that were removed include MTV, VH, Nickelodeon, and Comedy Central, as well as some News Corp channels. The companies claim that porting TV to a tablet is a violation of their programming contracts and are seeking to negotiate new contracts with Time Warner to stream shows for mobile devices.
