Verizon Launches TV Channels for iPad

The Verizon project marks another volley in the competition with rival Bright House Networks.

Last year, Bright House started offering several dozen live channels on tablets -- including A&E, Discovery, Lifetime, CNN and the Disney Channel -- a system that also only works inside the customer's home.

Though tablets have been on the market for only the past few years, already 9 percent of people are watching shows on tablets, according to data from market researcher Parks Associates.

Content companies such as Disney and Fox see huge opportunities there, especially as their current projects don't allow viewers to skip commercials -- a major source of revenue.
