Time Warner adds 17 channels to iPad app

Time Warner Cable (NYSE: TWC), forced by angry programmers to pull 12 channels off its iPad streaming TV app, has turned around and added 17 more channels, including ESPN News, QVC and CSPAN. While those are not really beefy titles, the service provider also said it will be adding seven more popular networks, including TNT, TruTV and Cartoon Network from its former Time Warner (NYSE: TWX) parent.

Time Warner, among programmers, has been most obliging to the application. While News Corp.'s (Nasdaq: NWSA) Fox Networks, Viacom (NYSE: VIA), Discovery Communications (Nasdaq: DISCA) and Scripps Networks forced TWC to pull their fare from the app, Time Warner offered up CNN and may soon add TBS.

Unlike Cablevision Systems' (NYSE: CVC) offering, announced Saturday with 300 channels and 2,000 VoD titles, Time Warner Cable's iPad app is limited in scope to only select channels. Like Cablevision, though, it's also limited in area; it's available only within a residence to Time Warner Cable subscribers.
