Time Warner Cable updates iPad TV app

Amid its ongoing battle with Viacom, Time Warner Cable (NYSE: TWC) has launched the second version of its iPad TV viewing app, now equipped with more than 100 channels, as well as DVR programming and new guide features.

The cable TV operator still won't have any programming from Viacom (NYSE: VIA) channels such as Comedy Central, because the two parties have yet to resolve a dispute that began when Viacom sued Time Warner Cable over its right to extend Viacom content to a new device.

TWC said in launching TW Cable TV for the iPad 2.0 that it has already had more than 600,000 downloads for the app, which should help TWC and Viacom find an out-of-court solution to their dispute sooner rather than later.
