TV Networks Hate The New Time Warner iPad App

According to BusinessInsider, TV networks are heated about the new Time Warner iPad app, which theoretically streams 32 channels of live television to the Apple tablet.

We've heard from an industry source that cease and desists are already getting sent to Time Warner Cable because of the app.

The issue seems to be that the networks see iPad streaming as a different service than cable TV, and therefore want to control the rights — and negotiate terms, and possibly a fee — for those rights.

Someday, we'll all laugh about the ridiculousness of this corporate hostility towards internet television... hopefully.
