Time Warner Cable and Viacom have agreed to suspend their legal fight over the cable operator’s app for streaming content over iPads, reports the Los Angeles Times’ Company Town blog.

The two companies have agreed to a standstill agreement, which puts their legal battle on hold while they try to resolve the dispute.

Viacom has argued that Time Warner Cable doesn’t have the rights to stream content on platforms other than via a cable box, while Time Warner has said it has the right to stream over multiple platforms.

Either side can end the standstill with five days’ notice.
