Don’t throw a basket on the fire
Any video-focused publisher would love to be able to command “Seinfeld” money for several seasons of a video series.

Chive TV, a silent stream of viral content clips that Resignation Media offers to out-of-home locations, including Royal Caribbean Cruises, Westin Hotels and Dave & Busters, built a footprint of more than 1,400 screens around the world by offering its content for free to start, in some cases even paying to buy Roku sticks it uses to distribute the content.
