Question 8

Time Warner could offer the History Channel (H) and Showtime (S) individually or as a bundle of both.

The cost to Time Warner is $1 per customer for licensing fees.

 

Preferences

  Showtime History Chanel
Customer 1 9 2

Question 9

Should Time Warner bundle or sell separately?  Your answer needs to include the unbundled and bundled profits. 

Suppose Time Warner could sell Showtime for $9, and History channel for $8, while making Showtime-History bundle available for $13. Should it use mixed bundling. i.e., sells products both separately and as a bundle?

Your answer must include the profit with mixed bundling.
