I caught Jeff Bewkes, Time Warner CEO at CES, fresh of the stage with Verizon CEO Ivan Seidenberg .
Bewkes was Seidenberg's special guest, brought up to talk about "TV Everywhere," Time Warner's system which allows cable subscribers to access their premium cable content from Internet-enabled devices, like your laptop or now Verizon smartphones. (The video Bewkes showed during the keynote featured CNBC!)
Bewkes is incredibly bullish on what the new tablets and smartphones screens here at CES mean for Time Warner's bottom line. More screens mean more opportunities for viewers to watch Time Warner's shows or read Time Inc. magazines. Consuming more content means more ad and subscription revenue for Time Warner.
Does Netflix pose a threat to Time Warner's premium cable channels like HBO?
