Viacom and Time Warner Cable have agreed to resolve their pending disputes over whether cable subscribers may watch shows on mobile devices.
"Viacom and Time Warner Cable have agreed to resolve their pending litigations," the companies said in a joint statement. "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," the statement reads.
Terms of the settlement were not disclosed.
Time Warner Cable subscribers will be able to enjoy Viacom programming - from MTV's Jersey Shore to Comedy Central's The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and more - through TWC TVTM, Time Warner Cable's in-home streaming app for tablet devices. In addition, Time Warner Cable subscribers will get even more on-air channels from Viacom, including MTV Hits, MTV Jams and Centric, and subscribers in many major markets such as New York City will gain access to TV Land HD and BET HD, as well.
Viacom programming will be rolled out on TWC TVTM over the next several weeks.
