On October 22, 2016 wireless provider AT&T announced its plan to acquire Time Warner, which owns networks like HBO, CNN, and TNT, as well as film and video game company Warner Bros. Entertainment. The acquisition would embolden AT&T’s mobile distribution capabilities with Time Warner’s valued video content. AT&T recognizes that mobile is the platform where users increasingly spend their time, and that video is often their content of choice. “The future of mobile is video, and the future of video is mobile,” said AT&T CEO Randal Stephenson shortly after the announcement.
