    Question 8

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

    Suppose the reservation prices of customers 1 and 2 (the highest prices they are willing to pay) are presented in the boxes below.

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

      Showtime History Chanel
    Customer 1 9 2
    Customer 2 3 8

     

    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.
