Default If ATT&T/Time Warner Merger Fails

There has been a lot of talk the past few weeks on what will hpen of the planned merger doesn't get through court approval.

Aparently. Time Warner would then sell Warner Brothers, Turner Broadcasting, and HBO separately. Keep in mind that this is only if the planned merger doesn't go through. And might not even play out if it does But its fun to speculate about.

Personally, I think this could be a good thing. Provided the three companies weren't just gobbled up by other big studios. Just for an example: Lets say AT&T bought Warner Brothers, Apple Bought Turner Broadcasting, and Microsoft bought HBO....Well then you would have less media consolidation and more competition. It would certainly be better than the whole company being bought by another big company.

It wouldn't be allowed. I think they would have trouble buying even a piece of it. Especially with the Fox Merger waiting to be approved. Regulators aren't going to let Disney own both 20th Century Fox and WarnEr Brothers

I would be more afraid that Disney would try and buy DC Comics separately. That would lead to them having a monopoly of the Comic Book Industry. While the team ups would be good for fans in the beginning, not the long run.

Probably not, since they would be considered two different publishing houses.

I think whoever buys Warnee Brothers will just get DC Comically. I don't see them selling it separately. Whoever buys it won't already own a major studio.

But the government knows Disney won't abuse its power and will let them buy out Time Warner.

Disney is a big corporation that is all about making money. All corporations are like that. Thats why the government needs to make sure they don't get too big or overstep their bounds. disney owning Warner Brothers and Fox's studio would be an insane monopoly. Its bad enough that they already are going to buy 20th Century Fox.

I don't think the Time Warner Merger will fail. I think its just taking a longer time because of the courts. All this talk of a break up sale is just hypothetical. I don't think it will get that far. ATT&T doesn't own any other networks or studios.
