One Thing To WatchJon Fine
One big question concerning the video iPod:
Will people pay $1.99 to download half-hour of broadcast TV?
If the answer is yes, the networks are very happy. And producers of deeply-loved-but-low-rated shows have a new argument for getting, and staying, on the air. (We can call this phenomenon the “Arrested Development development.”)
If the answer is no … well, network TV can replace (once again) newspapers as the whipping boy of the media world.
