Fox was not alone, however, as noted by Time Warner’s blog post below.
Programmers Are Kicking The Currents of Change With Feeble Karate: We’re Removing Some Channels From Our iPad App
Time Warner’s post doesn’t pull any punches. Here’s a quote from the blog.
And as you may have heard, the aforementioned programmers would like for us to pull the feeds for channels that they own from our iPad app. They are willing to threaten to sue over it, too. They also don’t want us to talk about this publicly for fear of bad PR — as though our customers are incapable of Googling a few news stories and cross-referencing them against a thinning channel lineup.
Time Warner’s IWantMyTWCableTVApp.com site lists the specific channels that are no longer available through TWCable TV iPad app.
As you can see from the list below, these are all very popular channels whose removal will be noted by many people.
