Time Warner Cable adds 17 channels to iPad TV app

Time Warner Cable on Friday shot back at the need to pull some channels from its TWCable TV iPad app by adding 17 new ones. Although it had to pull some key Discovery-, Fox-, and Viacom-owned stations, it now has major networks such as A&E, CNN, Disney, ESPNnews, IFC, and MSNBC, among others. It also managed to add Fox News despite the apparent deadlock.

TWC didn't say how many of the networks greenlit the new addition, although a handful are local news stations like NY1.

Certain networks have objected to TWC's strategy as it went forward with streaming without first clearing the rights from the network. The cable provider has maintained that it already had the rights. In its current form, TWCable TV still has to be accessed over Wi-Fi while connected to a TWC cable modem, putting customers on the cable network.

The company has cast itself as being future-thinking but has so far been against any Internet video solution that doesn't depend on a cable package.
