Time Warner had released an application for the iPad that let users watch live television broadcasts as long as they were in their own home.
Viacom sued Time Warner, claiming it didn't have the right to stream its content to the iPad. Time Warner disagreed, but decided to pull several channels from its iPad streaming app regardless of its stance. Following a spat in Federal court, both sides have decided to settle the case.
Both companies issued a statement on Wednesday, saying they had "agreed to resolve their pending litigations," and that Viacom conent will now be available to Time Warner Cable subscribers for viewing in their homes via iPad.
Comedy Central and MTV will be restored first, but it will take some time to restore all streams.
