Hmm... interesting. Would be great if they could work with some of the governmental agencies to enable their content tickles down to the grass root level ... where it could be delivered to the most needy.

Also thought it wouldn't hurt if the delivery of the content could have a multilingual angle to it.... just to expand its target audience.

That is, indeed, great news. Reaching out to a greater core of people through multilingual broadcasting seems to be a good idea!
