The AllVid Mystery

3:30 PM -- A single gateway that connects all manner of Internet video, on-demand content, and linear TV right to my television?

That's what the FCC is asking the industry to produce, but it's not clear how cable operators, IPTV service providers, and hardware makers will respond. And who's side should consumers take in this anyway?

Well, I couldn't tell ya. So I got the help of Jeff Baumgartner, a man who has forgotten more about linear video regulatory matters this week than I've learned in a lifetime. Watch as he walks us from FCC failures of the past to the soon-to-be-failures of tomorrow.
