What ATT Gets For $85 Billion

by Felix Richter, Statista.com

Following a slew of reports last week, AT&T has made it official.

The U.S. telecom giant has agreed to acquire Time Warner in a deal worth $85 billion. Still subject to regulatory approval, the deal would put AT&T in control of world-famous media brands such as CNN, TNT and HBO alongside Warner Bros. Entertainment, the world’s largest film and television studio in charge of franchises such as Harry Potter, Game of Thrones and the DC Comics universe.

Interestingly, the Time Warner deal would mark the second multi-billion dollar acquisition in as many years for AT&T. In July 2015, the company completed the $49 billion acquisition of DIRECTV, making it the largest pay TV provider in the United States and the world. Adding Time-Warner-owned HBO and Warner Bros. to the mix would give AT&T control over the entire value chain, from content production to its marketing and distribution to people’s homes and mobile devices. While that could open up interesting possibilities such as distributing premium content exclusively to AT&T subscribers or exempting Time Warner’s pay TV services from data caps, it is all but certain that such anti-competition practices would be forbidden by regulators should they greenlight the deal at all.

This chart shows the revenue of AT&T and Time Warner in 2015 by business segment.
