Cable could be dead and gone before we know it - especially if Netflix has anything to do with it.
The streaming powerhouse is already taking steps in that direction, producing original and exclusive shows like "Orange is the New Black" and "House of Cards," and it doesn't plan on stopping there.
The streaming powerhouse wants its own "Game of Thrones"- style TV show, that will be almost as expensive as HBO's mega-popular, mega-pricey sword-and-sorcery epic.
So expensive in fact that the New York Times is reporting it cost $90 million to make a mere 10 episodes.
The series is called "Marco Polo" and focuses on the life of the famous explorer, including his interactions with Kublai Kahn. It's set to debut on Dec. 12.
