We know at AT&T that if you saw tax rates move to 20 percent to 25 percent, we know what we would do: We would step up our investment levels.feedback

I've had two conversations with President Trump and his administration. In neither one of those conversations was there any discussion about this deal. So those kinds of conversations would not happen.feedback

The filing has been made with the Department of Justice. The review is ongoing right now. There will not be a filing with the FCC. We're going to assume no licenses from Time Warner. It will be a one-track review. The Department of Justice will review it and that's going at pace. We still think we'll be closed by end of year.feedback

The world of distribution and content is converging and we need to move fast and if we want to do something truly unique, begin to curate content differently, begin to format content differently for these mobile environments, and this is all about mobility.feedback

The competitive environment in telecommunications does not change after this closes. The competitive environment in the media and entertainment business does not change. The concentrations are the same. Nothing is different. And so as a result, as long as the law is applied, this is a deal that will be approved.feedback

If you get this kind of tax reform, it would have significant implications to capital investment for a company like ours. Yeah, we would probably step our capital investment up.feedback

Together, AT&T and Time Warner will disrupt the entrenched pay-TV models, giving customers more options, creating more competition for cable TV providers and accelerating deployment of 5G wireless broadband.feedback

They own a number of licenses here and there, everything from walkie-talkie, wireless licenses to satellite licenses on bands for CNN.feedback

This obviously will require extensive analysis.feedback

To the extent that it keeps their content costs down, we'd be open to it.feedback

This is 100+ premium channels ... A mobile-centric platform for $35 a month.feedback

It has all [Time Warner's] content, all the premium content you know and love, and that includes your mobile streaming costs.feedback

Ultimately, we think we'll be competing head to head with the cable companies with a wireless offer. We can hit those kind of price points, combine it with this kind of content, we think this is exciting.feedback

This is what we're after, speed of execution and changing the game.feedback

As soon as we closed DirecTV, we went full out on developing this [DirecTV Now idea].feedback

It's a purely over-the-top video product. DirecTV Now is what we're calling it.feedback

The idea that we're going to come along and start to constrict the distribution of this content makes no economic sense. That would be a crazy idea. So the idea that is going to be a byproduct of this (deal), it doesn't make sense.feedback

There are no competitors being taken out of the marketplace. This is a pure vertical integration and while regulators will often time have concerns with vertical integrations, those are always remedied by conditions imposed on the merger. And so that's how we envision this one to play out.feedback

We have a very common view of the world. From the first time Jeff and I had a conversation this thing just had what I would call gravity and it moved along on its own very natural process.feedback

Premium content always wins. We'll have the world's best premium content with the networks to deliver it to every screen.feedback

This is going to require more than individual company initiatives and one-off blocking apps. Robocallers are a formidable adversary, notoriously hard to stop. And technology such as spoofing makes it easier for them to work around our various fixes and hide their tracks. This strike force will need to take a different approach. If we truly want to deal with this, the entire ecosystem has to work together – carriers, device makers, OS developers, network designers. And don't forget, regulators and lawmakers have a role to play. We have to come out of this with a comprehensive play book for all of us to go execute.feedback

One year after our acquisition of DirecTV, the success of the integration has exceeded our expectations. Cost synergies are ahead of target, we've added nearly 1 million DirecTV subscribers since the acquisition, and our new video streaming services are scheduled to roll out later this year. We plan to serve every segment of the video industry and offer customers their favorite content virtually wherever and whenever they want it.feedback
