What an interesting thought Mark!  Customizable and meaningful to the individual consumer--that would be outstanding!!!   If I were one of the major news players i'd be a little nervous.  I think that many of us would like to move beyond the utter drivel that makes up the 24/7 cycle...not to mention the endless 'breaking news" updates that add nothing to the story.  As to entertainment this almost feels like a fresh opportunity--Disney,  the HBO package, the CBS package, etc--maybe available at a discount on Netflix?

Anyway--I'm already picking my news and entertainment feeds!!!
 
Another review from me today, this one of the latest Liam Neeson crime thriller RUN ALL NIGHT. Enjoy!
While Cinderella steps in with glass slippers to take over the box office this weekend (read my full review of that film over here), audiences looking for something quite different in the form of good ol' fashioned action-driven cinema need look no further than Liam Neeson's latest gun-in-hand crime thriller [...]

Excellent review and looking forward to watching this new Cinderella movie some time in the future with my daughter, whose given name is 'Ella' ! Not yet though, as she's still too young at 5 going on 6.

New from me today -- Next time someone says there are too many superhero movies, show them this so they know why that's not true at all!

http://www.forbes.com/sites/markhughes/2015/02/27/tsunami-of-superheroes-is-just-a-drop-in-the-bucket/
