Fox Networks has reportedly told Time Warner Cable (TWC) to stop streaming cable channels to the iPad of pay-TV subscribers, stating such use isn’t authorized.
Fox News parent News Corp joins Scripps Networks Interactive (SNI) in challenging WTC over the transmission of live TV signals via an application on Apple’s iPad without consent.
TWC customers with internet service are able to use the app to watch programming within their homes. The letter may be a sign of a lawsuit to come. TWC has argued that there is no difference between an iPad and a portable TV because the iPad app can only be watched at home.
There are 32 channels on Time Warner’s app. TWC was the first cable provider to release an iPad app that streams live TV. Cablevision Systems (CVC) stated that it will introduce a similar product this quarter.
This will apply to calls to fixed-line numbers in Country Zone 1, which includes all EU countries and other markets.

The Internet Service Providers’ Association of South Africa (ISPA) has asked ICASA and the Department of Communications (DoC) to inform industry on how plans for the spectrum auctions in the 2.6 and 3.5GHz bands are progressing.
ISPA welcomed the news that a specialist auctioneer will be appointed to handle the auction but urged ICASA and DoC to move quickly and appoint the auctioneer and then finalise preparations.
According to ISPA, it was alarming that the auctions may not be held prior to the end of this year. ISPA also called on ICASA to provide more clarity about its plans around making regional assignments in the 3.5 GHz band so that small regional operators can assess whether they will qualify to participate.
Brooks further urged ICASA to finalise the regulations around sub-leasing envisioned in the recently-published draft radio regulations before the auction takes place.

Standard & Poor’s has cut Nokia Oyj’s debt rating for the first time citing market share losses and weakerâ€ operating margins at the Finnish company.
According to S&P, the long-term rating was lowered one step to A- with a stable outlook. S&P has since June 1998 ranked the debt A, the sixth-highest of 10 investment grades. Moody’s Investors Service has an equivalent A2 rating. Nokia had about $7.5 billion in long-term debt at the end of last year.
As per S&P analysts, the downgrade reflects the revision of their business risk profile assessment on Nokia to â€˜satisfactory’ from â€˜strong. Nokia’s smartphone portfolio will make further significant market share losses during 2011 and 2012 until it has completed its adoption of Microsoft’s Windows Phone software as its new primary software platform for smartphones.
He added that this transaction is very instrumental in improving network service.
