HBO solo?

As a nod to the growth of on-line platforms and alternatives to cable and satellite,  Cable, Print and Broadcast giant Time Warner Chief Executive Jeff Bewkes floated the idea that HBO could try its luck as a standalone service instead of consumers having to spend north of $50 on cable before they can buy the pay packages that feature HBO. Speaking at an investor conference Monday, Bewkes said that if the pay channel was "overly hindered by having to be part of $60, $80 or $100 packages, we could [sell the channel] through existing distributors" or via new digital platforms. More on Bewkes from theNew York Post.  See also Company Town on the LA Times blog.

Republicans win tax cuts for the rich and resulting increase in national debt over the next 10 years


With only a few weeks left before the Senate adjourns for the year, my
Democratic colleagues and I are working hard to get more
done for the American people:
  • We're working to ratify the START treaty President Obama negotiated, 
  • so that we can keep our country safer and reduce 
  • the proliferation of nuclear weapons.
  • We're fighting to repeal "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," so that gay and lesbian 
  • service members don't have to lie about who they are to serve our country.
  • We're taking up the DREAM Act once again, so that the hard-working 
  • children of immigrants can go to college, contribute to their communities, 
  • and live the American Dream.
  • And we're negotiating an extension of unemployment benefits, 
  • to keep our middle class afloat during these tough economic times.
But the Republican Party has a different agenda: Tax cuts for millionaires
and more debt for the rest of us. We saw this weekend how far they're
willing to go, when they blocked two different packages of middle
class tax cuts because their super-wealthy friends weren't included.

This is why we fought so hard to keep them from seizing the Senate majority--
and why we need to keep fighting to prevent them from undermining
President Obama and holding our country hostage to the desires
of their wealthy benefactors.
I want you to know that from now through the very last day
we're in session, I will do everything I can to fight for the
families of Nevada. Republicans can play these cynical
games all they want--it's up to us to make sure they don't win.

Thanks for everything,

Harry Reid
US Senate

Calling Long Distance

New York City is about to add its eighth area code. The geography is substantially smaller than Clark County, much less Las Vegas.

And we take on area code for granted..

Not all that many years ago the entire state of Nevada had one area code...."702"

Some say in the age of cell phones, unlimited calling plans and personal numbers....why not just change the number of digits in a phone number as was done when the US went from 5 to 6 and 6 to 7 digits?

What are your thoughts?

Is TV on a comeback?

Don't call it a comeback. After years of naysayers declaring that television was becoming passe as an advertising medium, apparently the small screen matters again. Speaking at an investor conference, Steve King, the chief executive of ZenithOptimedia, said TV's share of the ad market will hit almost 41% in 2011, up from 37% in 2005. The New York Times on the new love for television. -from Company Town at the LA Times
