AT&T is buying Time Warner for $85 billion | Mobile Video Challenges Worldwide | Scoop.it
AT&T and Time Warner have agreed to a merger.
Claude Seyrat's insight:

Smart phones have changed our lives - and the media/telecommunications market. As I've said many time already, the future of media watching will be centered around viewing TV, movies and other video streaming events on our mobile devices more than regular cable TV.

This is just the beginning.
