AT&T acquires Time Warner.
« on: October 22, 2016, 05:20:39 PM »
AT&T has announced a deal to acquire Time Warner for $86 billion.

Let's hope this doesn't become a disaster like what happened with AOL all those years ago.

Well, if it at least results in Jeff Bewkes no longer running them then that's at least one positive. Though I'm not certain if even that's happening.



Him giving up Time Warner would at least lead to some good.

The Toonami Faithful Podcast had an interview with CNN's Jose Argumedo explaining what would happen if the merger goes through. (Fast-forward to 58:53.)

Looks like that's going to happen.

Goody!


There's a chance whomever the new boss is could be as stupid and shortsighted as he was, but I'm going to stay cautiously optimistic unless they start screwing up badly. Wonder how this affects channels like TNT and CNN?

No word on TNT, but they might sell CNN.

Also TMZ, but I don't see a problem. :awesome:

I am 100% fine with this development.
