Time Warner/Turner First Quarter 2017 Financial Results

Time Warner, the parent company of Cartoon Network’s Turner Broadcasting has announced better than expected first-quarter results, helped by Warner Bros.’ movie releases The Lego Batman Movie and Kong: Skull Island. Turner has seen a two percent decline in ad revenue for its TV channels, but this is more of a television industry issue as other networks are facing the same problem. John Martin, the CEO and Chairman of Turner expected a healthy upfront season of new shows and episodes, which has helped increase advertisers’ interest in recent weeks. Time Warner has no plans to offer its content on Amazon Prime, focusing on their own channels and streaming services instead (including Boomerang, Filmstruck, the upcoming DC Comics streaming service and its 10% stake in Hulu). Time Warner’s merger with AT&T is currently on track and is expected to be finalised by the end of this year.
