Viacom and Cablevision Systems have settled their dispute over Cablevision’s iPad app that allows consumers to watch TV shows on their Apple devices, reports the Los Angeles Times’ Company Town blog.

Viacom had argued that its agreement with Cablevision didn’t give the cable company the right to offer networks such as MTV, Nickelodeon and Comedy Central on platforms other than TV.

The companies released a joint statement saying they had resolved pending litigation and Viacom programming will remain available for Cablevision to place on iPads and other devices. They did not give details on what led to the resolution.
