Media watch: Time Warner might open up HBO Go
- Time Warner (TWX +1.9%) trades higher as enthusiasm over the media stock continues to build following the revelation that the company would be willing to offer HBO Go through a third-party ISP.
- The development is interesting because it could significantly help HBO add subscribers (including those elusive cord-cutters and cord-nevers) - although it also has the potential to disrupt the existing Pay-TV model which has paid off handsomely for content providers.
