What's up, Doc? At Warner Bros. Entertainment, what's up is a horde of film and TV properties. Warner Bros. Pictures produces and distributes flicks including the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows movies (Parts 1 and 2), as well as Inception and The Hangover Part II. Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has the world's largest film library; it distibutes DVDs and digital content and has video game activities. Warner Bros. Television Group produces shows including The Big Bang Theory (on CBS) and Gossip Girl (The CW Network). Warner Bros. also owns movie studio Castle Rock Entertainment, comic book company DC Entertainment, and 50% of The CW Network. The company is a subsidiary of Time Warner. That's all, folks!
Warner Bros. Entertainment accounts for about 40% of its parent company's overall revenues. The unit continues to be an industry leader in the motion picture and television production and distribution business due to its constant investment in programming and marketing.
The small screen is another area in which the company has a strong foothold. Warner Bros. Television Group (WBTVG) produces primetime, network, first-run syndicated, cable, and animated television series.
Home video revenues have declined in recent years thanks to a shift to subscription rental services and discount rental kiosks. The company has responded to an increase in digital streaming and downloading by reorganizing its home entertainment operations. Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Group (WBHE) houses Warner Home Video and an interactive video game division, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, as well Warner Bros. Digital Distribution assets. WBHE distributes movies and interactive content through online, wireless, pay per-view, and related technological channels.
