Merger bid spotlights TV changes

A combination could accelerate the industry’s “TV Everywhere” push, in which traditional media companies make their channels available over the Internet as part of a TV subscription. It’s the pay TV industry’s answer to the rise of streaming services such as Netflix, YouTube and Amazon. The hang-up in making those channels available online has partly been licensing deals with content producers. A unified company with an even larger suite of channels from TBS to FX could make such deals standard industrywide. Apps modeled after Time Warner’s successful HBO Go could also be applied to more networks. – Associated Press via HopeStar   http://ift.tt/WvJQBn
