Kevin Spacey and the Future of Video Entertainment

This is simply brilliant. Kevin  Spacey can see what the major networks and the cable and satellite industry can’t. Content creators want to create content and content consumers want to consume it. Give the viewer/listener what they want and give it to them at a fair price and they...
