New Online TV Network admin New Online TV Network

Deluxis Entertainment wants to be the next hot online TV network. The company is planning to create high-value, on-demand scripted content and deliver it in serialized form in their quest to become a destination for exclusive original shows online. Deluxis is not the first production company to try this approach. In light of the recent success of Netflix in its plans to license original programming, the idea of quality TV shows made exclusively for the web is not that far-fetched.

The CEO of Deluxis decided that there was a market niche in this area after he canceled cable and was unable to find the shows he wanted on Hulu, Netflix or online VOD services like Apple's iTunes. He said that the company is currently evaluating scripts and hopes to begin production soon. They plan to use resources like local grants and foreign pre-sale of shows that in development for start-up financing, but the real trick is getting subscribers to sign up to the network.
