Time Warner launched their iPad video streaming app a few weeks ago but due to its popularity (the app was crashing servers), they were forced to cut down half the amount of channels that were served on the app. And now it looks like Time Warner has run into another stroke of bad luck. A number of companies have demanded that Time Warner removed their channels from the iPad app due to violation of contract agreements. While Time Warner has paid for the rights to air their channels on TV, it doesn’t entitle them the rights to air their channels on the internet. Now those companies want Time Warner to buy the rights for internet broadcasting. It hasn’t been mentioned what Time Warner’s next move is, but the network has removed those channels from its iPad app. It looks like there won’t be any MTV or FX (and various other channesl) for Time Warner customers on their iPad tablets, at least for now.
