Heard on Time Warner's (TWX) earnings call: 1) Execs see an advantage down the line for the firm's high programming costs and investments compared to peers. 2) Will transition toward new grow channels by utilizing new advertising concepts. 3) Expects Q4 to be the strongest quarter of 2012 with The Hobbitt, growth at HBO, and the video release of The Dark Knight Rises offsetting ongoing weak global advertising. 4) Appears set to maintain the status quo with its sports rights portfolio which includes NBA and NCAA Final Four - but doesn't rule out making a bid for NFL or other high-profile packages.
