Item 8.01  Other Events.

Throughout this document, AT&T Inc. is referred to as "we" or "AT&T." AT&T is a holding company whose subsidiaries and affiliates operate worldwide in the telecommunications, media and technology industries. Due to organizational changes and our June 14, 2018 acquisition of Time Warner Inc. (Time Warner), effective for the quarter ended September 30, 2018, we are revising our operating segments to align with the new management structure and organizational responsibilities.

Our new reportable segments are:

The Communications segment provides wireless and wireline telecom, video and broadband services to consumers located in the U.S. or in U.S. territories and businesses globally. This segment contains the following reporting units:
Mobility provides nationwide wireless service and equipment.
Entertainment Group provides video, including over-the-top (OTT) services, broadband and voice communications services primarily to residential customers. This segment also sells advertising on DIRECTV and U-verse distribution platforms.
Business Wireline provides advanced IP-based services, as well as traditional voice and data services to business customers.

The WarnerMedia segment develops, produces and distributes feature films, television, gaming and other content in various physical and digital formats globally. Historical results from AT&T's Regional Sports Network (RSN) and equity investments (predominately Game Show Network and Otter Media Holdings), previously included in Entertainment Group, have been recast into the WarnerMedia segment and are combined with the Time Warner operations for the period subsequent to our acquisition on June 14, 2018. This segment contains the following reporting units:
Turner is comprised of the WarnerMedia businesses managed by Turner as well as our RSN. This reporting unit creates and programs branded news, entertainment, sports and kids multi-platform content that is sold to various distribution affiliates. Turner also sells advertising on its networks and digital properties.
Warner Bros. consists of the production, distribution and licensing of television programming and feature films, the distribution of home entertainment products and the production and distribution of games.
Home Box Office consists of premium pay television and OTT services domestically and premium pay, basic tier television and OTT services internationally, as well as content licensing and home entertainment.

The Latin America segment provides entertainment and wireless services outside of the U.S. This segment contains the following reporting units:
Vrio provides video services to customers using satellite technology in Latin America and the Caribbean.
Mexico provides wireless service and equipment to customers in Mexico.

The Advertising & Analytics segment provides advertising services. These services utilize data insights to develop higher value targeted advertising. Certain revenues in this segment are also reported by the Communications segment and are eliminated upon consolidation.

In addition to these reportable segments, we will be providing supplemental financial information to aid in comparability to other companies that presents (1) our AT&T Business Solutions results which include both wireless and wireline operations and (2) a combined view of advertising revenues reported by AT&T.

AT&T today is making available the recasting of the historical reported segment and supplemental results, which will be included in our third-quarter 2018 earnings materials, for the quarters and year ended 2017 and for the quarters ended March 31, and June 30, 2018, which are provided as hereto. We have included Time Warner results for the 16-day period from June 15, 2018 to June 30, 2018. In accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, operating results from Time Warner prior to the acquisition are excluded.


Information set forth in this filing contains financial estimates and other forward-looking statements that are subject to risks and uncertainties. A discussion of factors that may affect future results is contained in AT&T's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. AT&T disclaims any obligation to update or revise statements contained in this filing based on new information or otherwise.
