Time Warner CEO talks ‘TV Everywhere’

Jeff Bewkes gives keynote at Consumer Electronics Show

Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes has missed few opportunities to promote the “TV Everywhere” concept, and of course, turned to the Consumer Electronics Show to make his latest push.

The exec took the stage during Thursday morning’s keynote led by Verizon CEO Ivan Seidenberg, to talk up the need for faster high-speed networks to make “TV Everywhere” accessible for consumers from mobile devices to TV sets and other entertainment platforms in the home.

Verizon was touting the capabilities of its enhanced broadband and 4G LTE wireless networks. The broadband network, available to its 15 million FiOS subscribers can now reach speeds of 150 megabits per second, or 21 times the average broadband speed nationwide. That enables a film to be downloaded in less than 5 minutes.

That kind of speed should prove more attractive to users of Verizon’s FlexView VOD service, which launched in November and ended the year with around 2,000 titles. FlexView sells and rents movies and TV shows that can be played on multiple devices, including laptops, tablets and smartphones. Verizon hopes to have 6,000 titles available this year.

The 4G LTE network boosts speeds tenfold over 3G for mobile phones.

All forms of entertainment “is going on-demand, on every device, in ever higher quality, HD soon 3D, and it is an explosion of vitality that is moving from the TV screen, still on TV, but to every other screen that you have,” Bewkes said.
