Alibaba Group now has another string in an impressive bow of media investments. 

The e-retail giant struck a deal yesterday with Chinese film company DMG and Hunan TV to create a bundle subscription service that encompasses cable and mobile internet as well as gaming, filming and TV. It’s the first ever bundling deal of this sort available on the mainland.
