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.

Filmed Entertainment (40% of revenue)[3]
