Roberto Chinnici puts some probing questions to non-mainstream English language TV channels. His solution to their problems to break into the U.S. market: Use the web to your advantage to be disruptive with conventional TV programming.
To address the complaint regarding economic cost of bandwidth, finding a way to include decent advertising may prove sufficient.
