Obama Calls for Cable Box Competition 6 MIN, 30 SEC

President Obama calls for increased competition aimed at freeing consumers from their dependence on leased cable television boxes. The goal is to allow innovators to sell higher quality devices, at lower cost, that could let viewers watch their favorite programs via cable, satellite or streaming online services through one easy-to-use gadget. Goodbye cable box, Apple TV, computer modem. The idea is to consolidate access to all those platforms in one convenient device. Brian Fung, technology reporter for the Washington Post, has an update.

The New York Primary: A Bare-Knuckle Brawl 32 MIN, 40 SEC

"If you can make it there, you can make it anywhere." That's what New Yorkers like to say about the Big Apple. And Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton seem determined to test the proposition in next week's presidential primary. He questions her judgment. She says he can't explain his own economic plan. Last night, they traded barbs on criminal justice, US policy on Israel and the power of Wall Street banks. Can Brooklyn-born Bernie pull off an upset, against Hillary – twice elected to the Senate from her adopted home state? We hear from experts on presidential politics, and reporters in the thick of the race.
