Time Warner Cable adds to iPad app

Net adds 17 channels

Update: Apple approves Cablevision app

Time Warner Cable added at least 22 cable channels to its controversial iPad app over the weekend, less than 24 hours after dropping a dozen due to pressure from a trio of cable programmers.

While the MSO dispatched with any networks provided by Discovery Networks, News Corp. and Viacom on Thursday, apparently Walt Disney Co. and NBC Universal don’t share their outrage over the app. The new additions include some of the highest rated channels on cable, including NBCU’s USA Network.

Other companies that weren’t represented on the iPad earlier contributed channels as well, including Current and Bloomberg.

The new additions bring the total number of channels being streamed live via TWC’s iPad to 42, and a TWC spokesman indicated more additions are expected.

The removed channels include seven from Viacom (Nickelodeon, BET, CMT, Comedy Central, MTV, VH1 and Spike), three from Discovery (Discovery, TLC, Animal Planet) and two from Fox Cable Networks (FX and National Geographic).

Cablevision also announced Thursday that its own version of the service will be available to subscribers once Apple approves of the app, which was submitted Thursday.
