Now that Netflix has announced a split of its DVD and streaming businesses, how will Amazon react with its streaming segment? What will the production/distribution companies do with their “traditional” business models? Will CBS finally open up its content for streaming on other companies’ services?

Derek Evenson, Comcast
Abram Guerra, Warner Bros.
Erica Hansen, CBS Entertainment
Joanna Huh, Amazon
Joel Samen, Netflix
