Time Warner makes up for lost iPad channels

Time Warner announced it has added 16 national channels and three local channels to its iPad app a day after yielding to programmers who insisted the cable company remove several others.

The cable company pulled the content of 11 channels owned by Fox, Discovery and Viacom from its popular app Thursday after the programming companies threatened to sue Time Warner for streaming their content. That means shows from Animal Planet, BET, CMT, Comedy Central, the Discovery Channel, FX, MTV, National Geographic, Nickelodeon, Spike and VH1 are no longer available to stream on the iPad.

In a blog post, Digital Communication director Jeff Simmermon said the app would now feature content from the 16 new national networks including A&E, AMC, Bravo, CNN, Food, HGTV, MSNBC, Style, Travel and USA.
