HBO, home of "Sex in the City," "The Wire," "True Detective" and "True Blood," is said to be considering whether to allow customers access to their streaming video service -- "HBO-GO" -- without having a cable subscription. That move would not only shake up the television industry, it would put HBO in direct competition with services like Netflix. And Cary Coglianese, a professor of Law and Political Science at the University of Pennsylvania, talks about how public comments will shape the FCC’s position on net neutrality when the public comment period closes. Plus, a conversation with founders at TechCrunch about what they’re looking for at this year's conference.
