Viacom and Cablevision Settle Streaming Fight

Media companies had been duking it out over the cable company’s iPad app

Cablevision and Viacom have resolved a dispute over streaming rights, the media companies said on Wednesday. 

Last June, Viacom sued the cable giant in New York Federal Court, charging Cablevision with distributing its content illegally via an iPad application.

Cablevision was streaming live programming from Viacom’s suite of cable companies such as MTV, Comedy Central and Nickelodeon.

Viacom said that making its programming available digitally to Cablevision customers fell outside its existing licensing agreement.

In a joint statement, the two companies said they had reached a settlement and that Viacom's programs will continue to appear on the app. Just don't expect either side to admit they were wrong. 

"Neither side is conceding its original legal position or will have further comment,” the statement reads.
