Dumb Pipe or Smart Pipe, AT&T Acquires Time Warner

2016 - 10 - 22

When you get a new phone, would you try out the new services or APPs from your service providers? Or you take them as obsolete dumb software that just take up space in your phone?


電信商都不甘心自己只是提供基本資料傳輸的笨水管(dumb pipe ),所以努力開發加值應用程式和市集(Market Place)。不管是影音串流或電子書服務,都是希望多多從使用者身上撈金,進而產生綜效,打造下一個如蘋果或Android的生態系。


今天,根據Wall Street Journal報導,美國電信商AT&T正打算併購美國內容商時代華納。時代華納昨天收盤價$89.48,市值647億美元;AT&T打算出到800億,用部分現金部分換股來併購。幾個月之前,Apple也和時代華納談過,雖然最後沒下文,但也不表示不會重啟談判。


HBO,頂天的內容製作,擁有多項高人氣自製內容;CNN,這不用多說,美國最具影響力的全球新聞網;TNT、Turner Sports,最為人知的應該美國職籃NBA的轉播;Cartoon Network,卡通頻道,24小時專門播放卡通片,台灣也有;Warner Bros,平常看電影,一定會知道的超級大片商。更別忘了,關於OTT的佈局,時代華納除了自己的HBO Now以外,也還擁有Hulu的10%股權。







OTT天下,誰與爭鋒? 我們繼續觀察。
