News: Elizabeth Holmes writes today in the WSJ about LX.TV, a website that plans to provide online programs for lifestyle and entertainment for the hip and fashionable. The article is not freely available, but here’s a money line:
“[The founders of LX.TV] hope to capitalize on the recent attention by coupling the Web’s cheap start-up costs and on-demand delivery system with a tried-and-true television formula: Find attractive young people. Put them in front of a camera. Surround them with expensive clothes, throbbing music, potent potables, fashionable nosh and more attractive, affluent young people.”
Analysis: The potential of a web network taking hold is exciting. The start page for LX.TV seems a little slow to load, though. Once I got to the videos, they were pretty slick.
