It’s part two of our interview with him. Here’s a sample of what he had to say:

"All of a sudden when you’re sitting there and you’ve got the ability on your big screen TV to search the web and download video content, I think that will start disrupting viewing levels. Because now online video content can actually become that much more competitive with standard television content.
