  1. The lawsuit is crazy. I guess ZillionTV has a $13 Million pay deal with Warner Bros. that they never paid and the deal violates their contracts with all the other studios.

  2. Close read of the lawsuit shows that the Qwest investment is over a year old. What is real news is that the company has put all 27 remaining employees on furlough for 2 to 6 weeks and will force them to work for half pay after. The reality of ZillionTV is that the STB doesnt work and no engineering remains (CEO Berman said last September when he laid them off that they had nothing left to do); What makes ZillionTV unique: $50 MM burnt and nothing to show for it. Even Akimbo did better.
