Quotable

“What Max and AT&T TV have in common is they are both software based, independent of any proprietary hardware, allowing customers to get access content over any device, over any hardware platform… They’re low friction, they can be deployed literally by a flick of a computer switch somewhere in a back office… And that’s what consumers will see as the customer-based Max grows. It becomes a more scaled distribution element within AT&T, certainly something that surpasses 25-28% of households like our pay TV offering. That becomes a lead basis of entertainment and how we get into households.” — Incoming AT&T CEO John Stankey at the JP Morgan Technology, Media and Communications Conference
