The TV Crack-Up

The TV Crack-Up - Analog is out, digital is in, and everyone is vying for a piece of the viewer - via traditional TVs, web sites, mobile phones and myriad other vehicles for distribution. But where will the audience really show up? How will new players pay for video content? Is there an emerging model for advertising supported content that will endure the crack-up? What role do the large television networks have to play in this new era? Michael Jackson, Andrea Wong, Michael Eisner and David Westin discuss with moderator James Bennet.
