Krikorian is investing in the company founded by Jim Lanzone, the former CEO of; other investors include Benchmark Capital and Redpoint Ventures.

Krikorian certainly knows the subject, although his biggest success so far was using the internet as a pipe for people to view the programming on their own TV sets remotely.
