There is no mention of pricing, but the service should contain licensed material from others in addition to the Warner Media library. The company said earlier that HBO, Turner and Warner Bros. would be present.
This service, together with DirecTV Now and WatchTV, may also have some consequences for AT & T’s involvement in other streaming efforts. Telekom mentioned in the same discussion that it investigated the opportunity to “earn money” (read: sell) that was not decisive for its current strategies, including its minority share in Hulu. There is no guarantee that this will happen, but AT & T noted that it aimed to pay down $ 1
8 billion to its $ 20 billion debt by the end of 2019. Because the Hulu stake could be worth up to 930 million Dollar is a clear candidate for the cutter block.
Whether anyone is willing to snap up that bet is not sure. Other partners like 21st Century Fox and Comcast continue to lose money, and there is no certainty that Hulu will turn to profit anytime soon. All companies that jump in may have to accept that Hulu could bleed money for a while.
