Warner Bros.’ Sanders Sees EST Revenues Hitting $2B

“It’s a way to keep your consumers inside the cable infrastructure instead of letting them stream a movie on Netflix or order a movie on iTunes,” Sanders told moderator Mark Robichaux, editorial director of B&C and Multichannel News. He later added, “The consumer is finally accepting that a digital transaction is a safe transaction.”
