After August 31, 2011, most Canadians will no longer be able to receive analog television transmissions over the air. Are we ready? Is the transition worth it? Who stands to win: consumers, or industry?

To discuss these questions, Nora talked to Michael Geist and Bill St. Arnaud. Michael is a law professor at the University of Ottawa, and the Canada Research Chair in Internet and E-commerce Law. Bill is a Green IT consultant who works on next generation internet, cyber-infrastructure, and innovation.
