We love our business. We have never been more enthusiastic about cable and its future.

We did some soul-searching. Was the cable industry obsolete? Was it an opportune time to get out? Our conclusion was that if you rebuilt your system with this new fiber-optic coaxial hybrid - which we now call broadband - the glass was half full, not half empty. We could compete.

Today NBC makes certain content available online and I can't imagine we will change that process.

I think cable has been under-appreciated for its contribution to society.
