Reed Hastings' disruption tour continues as Netflix weighs ploughing its profits into an original series. "It's not TV, it's HBO" may soon be "It's not HBO, it's Netflix."
Update: 24 hours later, it's official. "Netflix has committed to a minimum of 26 episodes," the press release reads, of "House of Cards." That sounds like 2 seasons worth, and it should begin, um, "airing" in late 2012. Kevin Spacey and David Fincher MOREMichael V. Copeland, Senior Writer - Mar 17, 2011 10:29 AM ET
Advertisers want TV's large audiences with all the benefits of the web. But how?
Advertisers will spend $56 billion putting ads on TV this year, but they'll invest just $1.4 billion in web video ads.

Entrepreneurs and consumers desperately need access to more spectrum; it's time for the FCC to stop coddling the current hoarders of the airwaves.
Last summer, when the federal government ordered all local TV stations to begin sending out digital signals, the promised benefits were supposed to be huge. Upon the switch, spectrum once reserved for Good Morning Louisville! or People's Court reruns would instead carry valuable wireless data, voice, and MOREScott Woolley - Dec 3, 2010 3:00 AM ET

We suspect that it was Verizon's (VZ) stinging "There's a map for that" ad campaign, not a scat singing pogo stick, that Apple had in mind when it filed for trademark protection last May. Guy MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Nov 3, 2010 8:06 AM ET
