"Ask TiVo, ask ReplayTV, ask Roku, ask Vudu, ask us... ask Google in a few months... The only way that's ever gonna change is if you can really go back to square one and tear up the set-top box and redesign it from scratch with a consistent UI across all of these different functions and get it to the consumer in a way they're willing to pay for it. And right now, there's no way to do that.
Date: June 1, 2010
