When Will Authentication Be A Success? “When lots of users are actually using TV Everywhere, when consumers understand the high value of their MSO Identification and when a wide range of compelling content is available using it.”

On Your iPad: “I show off our TV Everywhere application.”

Most Valuable Traits for a Digital Executive: “Flexibility and focus.”
