is spending $100 million dollars
to create 25hrs a day of new original content. Intending to compete with cable TV, they'll have 100 "channels"
with regular series and well-known talent. The channels are being developed "specifically for the digital age," which sounds like they're trying to create a new type of media, they compare it to the advent of cable television. There's a graveyard of ideas like this
