An upcoming issue of Entertainment Weekly will allow readers to watch commercials. There will be a small video player embedded in the magazine. It works similar to those talking greeting cards, with the addition of a two-inch screen. The video will run ads for CBS shows and Pepsi.

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. If anybody ever told you to stop watching TV and go read something, you may soon have a way to fool them. An upcoming issue of Entertainment Weekly will allow you to watch television. There will be a small video player embedded in the magazine. It works about like those talking greeting cards, with the addition of a two-inch screen. People who buy the magazine will get the privilege of watching ads for CBS and Pepsi as soon as the magazine flips open.
It's MORNING EDITION.
