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. Mobile network providers are therefore racing to own the whole value chain. First it was Comcast with NBC Universal, then Verizon with AOL and Yahoo. Now it’s AT&T with Time Warner. This is just the beginning.
