Here at the National Cable Show it's not just cable carriers — content companies are also here, discussing new ways to grow viewers (and ad revenue) and rolling out new technology to keep subscribers hooked.
I sat down with Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes in an exclusive interview on Power Lunch.
Time Warner owns a number of cable channels, from Turner's networks to HBO, but until last year's spin-off, it also owned Time Warner Cable . I asked Bewkes if the company's better off without that stake in a cable carrier, especially considering how much cable stocks have gained in the past year. Bewkes is sticking with his plan to focus entirely on content, saying that things have worked out pretty well — earnings per share up 60 percent from last year's gains.
