AT&T (NYSE: T) launched HBO Max last week with a couple big missing pieces: You can't watch it on Roku (NASDAQ: ROKU) devices or Amazon's (NASDAQ: AMZN) Fire TV products. CEO of AT&T's Otter Media division, Tony Goncalves, explained the dispute between HBO Max and Roku and Amazon in an interview with The Verge.
Hollywood is voicing its support for the Black Lives Matter movement amid ongoing protests over the death of George Floyd.
T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) has just completed its takeover of Sprint. Between this merger and its massive investment in 5G mobile technology, T-Mobile has become one of only three companies launching a 5G network across the U.S. Long an emerging player in the wireless industry, T-Mobile stock saw massive gains as the telco cut prices and gained market share during the 3G and 4G eras.
With the streaming wars intensifying this year, every service provider is looking for any advantage it can get in order to earn a piece of your monthly entertainment budget. The practice is also called zero-rating, and it has garnered considerable criticism over the years for undermining net neutrality and competition more broadly. AT&T will pay itself for sponsored data usage.
In order to tide over the coronavirus-induced storm, AT&T (T) is aiming to de-lever its balance sheet while focusing on streaming services like AT&T TV and HBO Max.
The start of 2020 was good, and shareholders can’t complain much about guidance with a recession underway.
Picking the best dividend stocks to add to your investment portfolio requires more than looking for the highest yields. For years of dependable dividend income, you need to find well-run companies with solid business models capable of maintaining the dividend through tough economic times. The companies are listed in order of their dividend yields based on recent share prices.
Five years ago, AT&T (NYSE: T) bought DirecTV for $49 billion to become the largest pay TV provider in the U.S. and the world. At the time, AT&T believed it could bundle DirecTV's satellite TV channels into its pay TV and wireline businesses. AT&T also launched DirecTV Now, a streaming bundle of channels meant to challenge Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX) and other OTT platforms.
When it comes to high-yield but stable dividend payments, AT&T (NYSE: T) is a solid option. The company's acquisition of Time Warner (now the company's Warner Media group) was a high price tag that racked up significant debt, and the media business is now in decline due to the economic lockdown to halt the spread of COVID-19. For investors looking for income, then, American Tower (NYSE: AMT) may get overlooked.
Cord-cutting is expected to accelerate through 2021, but some say the financial consequences for U.S. cable providers will be limited.
HBO Max made its official entrance into the streaming wars on Wednesday — and its day-one performance highlights how consumers are embracing the new platform.
If last week's headlines suggesting that telecom giant AT&T (NYSE: T) should shed its pay-TV service DirecTV rang familiar, there's a reason. Indeed, the idea that AT&T would be well-advised to sell its struggling satellite TV business has been in the back of a lot of investors' minds for a while now. It hasn't happened yet, of course, but the fact that discussions of it continue to be revived raises several questions, chief among them: What is DirecTV actually worth to AT&T?
AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) continues to actively de-risk its capital structure, extending debt maturities at historically low coupons.
AT&T (T) extends contract to support Linde's day-to-day business operations with revamped and centralized networking infrastructure globally.
While AT&T (T) aims to redefine the streaming landscape with the HBO Max launch, Viasat (VSAT) beats fourth-quarter fiscal 2020 earnings estimate on top-line growth.
Investors looking to add more dividend stocks to their portfolio have found dividend yields right now to be a bit disappointing, reflecting the broad environment. A handful of names still offer strong payouts compared to their stock's current price, and don't impose a huge degree of risk just to plug into that still-solid dividend payout. Telecom giant AT&T (NYSE: T) has seen better days.
Verizon Communications (NYSE: VZ) and AT&T (NYSE: T) have long operated as each other's main competitors. Now, together with T-Mobile, they continue to compete for wireless business as the telecom industry transitions to 5G. The approaches pursued by Verizon and AT&T have taken each of these telecom stocks on different trajectories.
Trump's executive order attempting to shackle the platform will probably die in court, but that's beside the point.
WarnerMedia's new streaming service HBO Max launched today with a couple of conspicuous absences from the list of supported devices — Max is not yet available on Roku or Amazon's Fire TV. WarnerMedia's vice president of communications Chris Willard told USA Today that "there is no deal in place" to bring the service to those platforms. In a statement sent out this afternoon, Amazon suggested that the disagreement revolves around bringing HBO Max to Prime Video Channels, and around HBO's somewhat confusing distribution strategy.
Many believe Verizon will extend its 4G lead into the new 5G world. Unfortunately, there are factors that suggest Big Red's 5G dream may turn into a nightmare for investors.
HBO’s new streaming service, “HBO Max,” launched on Wednesday – joining the already-crowded streaming industry with the likes of Netflix, Disney, and Amazon. It has 10,000 hours of content and six original titles including this one, a romantic comedy starring Anna Kendrick. For HBO, which is owned by AT&T’s WarnerMedia division, the timing of the launch is critical. Streaming services have a captive audience right now, stuck at home without access to a theater, live music or televised sporting events. That situation helped Netflix add nearly 16 million new paying customers in the first three months of the year, more than double what it expected to attract. But with film and TV productions halted across the globe, HBO has postponed dozens of releases - most notably a “Friends” reunion special that it had originally planned for its launch. And if production doesn't resume by this fall, HBO Max could start to see a shortage of original content as early as January, according to a source familiar with the company. It has a $15 a month pricetag, a bit high compared to competitors, which may discourage some, as rising unemployment has cut disposable incomes. Still, WarnerMedia hopes to hit about 80 million subscribers by 2025.
