We're back, with a brand new edition of Hacking TV. SXSW -- the tech, music, and movie festival in Austin Texas known for launching APP's like Twitter and Meerkat. This year pivots from code to digital content, with VR and AR the talk of the show. OLD MEDIA wakes up -- prepares to Get Young -- and fast. Can CNN spend 20 million fast enough to matter? Meanwhile SnapChat continues to woo young fans from Facebook, while adding more video channels from folks like Now This News. And players like Daily Beast, and Google's YouTube make digital video moves.
I'm Steven Rosenbaum, and I'm Saul Hansell -- and this is Hacking TV.
