New York - In a move likely to lead to contract disputes with some programmers, Cablevision Systems' free Optimum for iPad app with access to more than 280 live channels as well as video-on-demand became available through Apple's iTunes App Store early Saturday.

 

The app provides access to channels based on a subscriber's Optimum iO TV package, including local broadcast channels, sports networks and premium programming. Cablevision had expected to launch the app Thursday, but was held up waiting for Apple to approve it for the iTunes App Store.
