TV but might also stand for -- by TV.
I'm glad I I see the Wall Street Journal wrote this article about you headlined.
Glenn Beck leads a revolution against TV he -- to take my job.
-- I believe -- creative destruction I believe it's the way we.
You know movement Kodak had -- had a moment.
Years ago where they said -- now we're film.
And we're just gonna do film and somebody else can do digital thinking that they would stay in business in -- you know how that ended it only took them I think to Christmas is to lose their lead.
As the almighty Kodak.
Is somebody is always thinking of a better way to do it in technology is now moving so rapidly.
But I think that the old delivery system of television.
Is -- -- is is fundamentally transforming to quote the president and -- week may show you an example here John sure.
If it here on the set if you come over here this is an original.
Color camera this is the first color camera.
On the other side -- -- take the -- go off but it's from NBC.
This is from 1954.
I think there's only about four of those left in the country.
If you now look at this television.
That I don't even want to tell you how much that cost us this is about an 80000 dollar camera.
Now with the can and I think it's a C 300 it's about this big I can get movie quality.
And the total cost to equip my studio with a one camera.
Would be about 20000 dollars.
You don't need a big company behind you any more to give you this studio in the cameras -- -- a great example of this is the record store at the record store doesn't exist anymore.
Because of iTunes.
But it's not just iTunes in the record store it's the record companies it's the guys who used to go around and scouts at the at the local bars and you had hope.
That your band that you were performing in had the on night and they would remember you -- -- -- -- -- back to New York to sit down with the executives there.
Now you don't have to do any of that now you.
Think of a song you get your friends together you recorded your house you videotaping you make a a music video for it.
And you put it on YouTube in a week you have a million views.
Why do I need the record company why do I need MTV why don't need all that stuff you don't.
Some people -- you have to have it for the money.
But Forbes says leaving fox turned out to be a pretty good move for you -- in the Wall Street Journal says eighteen months after leaving.
You've doubled the revenue of your company to eighty million dollars.
It has been it is I mean it's an expensive venture.
But it also is.
There are a lot of people out there that are looking for new ways to connect now you can connect would you be TV on.
The television sat through a device called roku which I haven't watched cable and I don't know how long now.
You can get all the shows as you want it from from fox even all the way to GB TV you connected -- TV so now you're watching the Internet.
As if it is network.
So you watch it there you watch it on your iPad you watch it on your Smartphone you watch -- on any thing.
That's that's where we're headed I don't know anybody who's thirty years you'll older younger that's watching television.
On the box on the console like you know what we used to have and are living rooms.
And your business models that people pay you -- Nine dollars and nine -- nine cents a month.
Which is a lot more than a hundred dollars a year and yet you've already got enough you get more viewers than this program I hate you for that.
You can pay -- I'm free what's the deal.
Patent but note that John I'm free.
I'm -- for your -- ninety's now.
No I mean and in a different way I'm free as as great in profound as the industrial revolution was over a hundred years ago.
That's what we're in right now that's the beginning of what we have right now and people.
Who you have to take the New York Times they're sitting here with those play those printing presses that who knows how much those printing presses cost.
You don't need that anymore so those people are trying to hold on as as hard as they can.
But the world is up for grabs right now I'm gonna try something different those are the ones it will succeed.
Well I I certainly would not have predicted what you have done I'll I look at that cover.
-- it shot where you've said you look like the Pillsbury -- plane and you do when they're kind of -- -- of KBS girls signing off.
All this revenue and and you're gonna do many we gonna do more hours of TV stay you already have -- children's show.
We have a children's show we have a reality show but not you know hey you -- in my food.
This is a family living off the grid he it's it it teaches you something along the way I have something coming.
In about says three weeks called the oval but I think people will enjoy.
It's not just about -- in fact I I was the only one that didn't want -- -- the network network GB TV.
Because it has to be more than just me it is a place that I think will change the culture.
You know GB TV doesn't have to be about you it can be government its biggest holdings -- or god bless TV miracle back to virtue well.
Isn't I think that the your slogan is the truth lives here I resent that I see the truth lives here.
But I guess we can both have the truth so thank you Glenn Beck thank you -- to visit with you again.
