Sony said Friday that it would push back its earnings report for the quarter that ended December 31, because of problems relating to the November hacking attack on Sony’s American film studio, Sony Pictures Entertainment.

The company said in a filing in Japan today that Sony Pictures had to shut down its entire computer network in response to the hack, and that many programs were still not up and running. Mike Regan of Bloomberg News joins Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson with details.
