Last night, ABC promised to stream the Oscars live online for the first time. But it failed. Overloaded computer networks kept the Oscars largely out of view for more than two hours of the broadcast. For this year, an independent service called Aereo—a competitor the networks would like to killwon the night, just by being down for less of the time.  

 

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
