Mark Wants You to Watch CuTube

Posted in GETV Episode by ekai on the October 18th, 2006

This isn’t the first time I’ve grabbed Mark Cuban in the hall of a hotel to interview him, and it won’t be the last! And I must say, Cuban is as gracious a webebrity as GETV has ever met. Not only did he shake the hand of every member of the Consumer Electronics Association who wanted to touch a piece of history (yes, goddamit — if you sell your start-up for $5 billion in 1991, and then you buy the Dallas Mavericks and then you marry a hottie named Tiffany, you’re a piece of American history), he explained his website several times over to several inquiring minds. When we finally wrestled Cuban away from his fans to our adoring camera, we had to bug him about his topic du jour = YouTube’s illegal conent and how it’s all going down in a burning ball of lawsuits . Cuban’s been busy — he’s got 12 films coming out of his production studio, the first due out Dec. 1 called The Architect featuring Isabella Rosellini. But our favorite part of the interview is where he tells us what he does in front of the television AFTER he checks his email at night. You’ll have to watch to see what that is.
