Time Warner Cable and Viacom announced a deal that will provide Nick, MTV and other networks to the MSO's TWC TV service for watching live TV on tablets, smartphones and PCs in the home, ending the companies' yearlong legal fight.
TWC said over the next few weeks it will add Viacom channels to the app lineup, including Nick, Comedy Central, MTV and VH1. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. 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.
