Despite all of the restrictions, the television networks are having a fit over this application. The networks say that streaming video over a tablet is different than providing content for cable television which means that they should own the rights to the content and get a fee for providing the content for the streaming iPad programming. Until things can be worked out, the networks are sending out 'cease and desist' letters to Time Warner Cable requesting that Time Warner pull their channel from the app immediately.
Time Warner Cable had no comment on the story. At the very least, some channels might have to be removed from the app, which is free for Apple iPad users from the App Store.
