Why are TV programs in Taiwan so terrible? Like Brokeback Mountain, everyone has an answer in mind. You can blame rating algorithm, rigid regulations for discouraging competition (or loose regulations for corporate profits), and even consumers for bad tastes.

Different from smart TVs or Android Box, miiiTV is a cloud TV platform completely developed in Taiwan. Based on online experiences, it aims to create a user-centered TV ecosystem, with services include mobile applications, TV set-top box and TV subsequently released. The application has topped the entertainment list in Google Play store, and TV Box and Smart TV joined promotional campaign with PCHome magazine in January.

As a theorist, I ask Jolios the entrepreneur about how he imagines media reform.
