Digital television allows new business models for television channels. The German based Etos TV, slated for a December start, has found a new niche: showing videos of the dead. Family members can show pictures and videoclips of a deceased person with an appropriate text for a fee of €2,000.
Other Etos programming will include documentaries about ‘beautiful cemeteries’ with music to match the pictures. It will also broadcast documentaries on related matters.
