    alt-TV

    I'm not sure what the following in red means. And what is 'alt-TV' and what does 'substantial mainstream' refer to?

    Like pop music, television today is multifarious and factional, and with the expansion of cable and cable's leap into original production, it has acquired something like an 'indie' or alt-TV component to complement its still substantial mainstream.

    Thank you.

    I imagine it's short for "alternative TV".

    "Substantial mainstream" refers to regular television offerings (the majority), as opposed to this new alternative television programming.
