Panel: TV Used to Be Easy. What Did You Guys Do to It?

The television industry has been trying for years to develop a comprehensive program guide with search, discovery, recommendation, social and more. And at the same time we are accelerating the creation and distribution of content. And it looks like the guides will never catch up.
