Some AOL Synergy—Finally


AOL Time Warner has at last done the synergy thing with Time Warner's content and AOL's pipes. AOL Broadband customers will get free CNN video streams. As the pop-up might say, "That's a retail value of five bucks a month for free!"

Will that be enough to get folks to migrate from AOL dial-up to AOL big pipe? Probably not alone, but it is a start. Besides, it is the only play the company has. It is just a wonder it didn't happen, oh, a week after the merger.
