Time Warner Inc. (NYSE: TWX) (formerly AOL Time Warner) is one of the world’s largest media conglomerates. It operates Time Warner Cable and TV programming and magazines such as Time Inc., Warner Brothers, and HBO. Its publishing business segments have been hard hit with falling advertising revenue. In December 2009, AOL was spun-off from Time Warner, making it an independent company again for the first time since the beginning of the 2000's.[1] Time Warner Cable (TWC) was spun off from the company in March 2009.[2]

Although its filmed entertainment business produces successful block buster movies like “The Dark Knight” and franchises like “Harry Potter” and “Ocean’s”, a continuing trend of falling movie theater attendance is troublesome for the company; this decrease can be attributed to high priced movie tickets along with poor economic conditions, and as HDTV’s become more inexpensive and home theater systems more affordable, consumers will switch to the latter option.

Company Overview

Business Segments

Time Warner operates three business segments: Filmed Entertainment, Networks, and Publishing

Filmed Entertainment (40% of revenue)[3]

Time Warner, under Warner Bros. Entertainment Group and New Line Cinema Corporation, produces and distributes theatrical motion pictures, television shows, and license rights to the its films and television shows.

Networks (46% of revenue)[3]

This business segment offers pay television programming services such as HBO and Cinemax and operates domestic and international networks. Revenue consists of subscriber fees paid by cable system operators and satellite distribution services, and of advertisings. Time Warner is planning to expand into the online TV market as well, showing some of its popular shows to paid subscribers, following in the suit of Comcast.[4]
