Comcast-GE Deal Will Reshape Television

Hosted by

When General Electric bought NBC Universal, broadcast television was a reliable cash cow. Now, cable provider Comcast has cemented the deal with GE to buy NBC Universal, a pioneer in free, broadcast TV. Jay Leno, The Office and the Peacock itself are "being thrown in the deal like complimentary floor mats in a new car." That's according to James Poniewozik of Time magazine, who looks at the likely consequences for viewers now and in the future.
