"Most of the fans are tech savvy viewers and the online environment is the niche we want to explore and where we anticipate a major breakthrough.

"It's a scam. In Spain, they say "selling cat as rabbit". TV-over-Internet in most of Spain is of lower resolution than any traditional form of TV, and at peak times there is pixelisation and freezing.
