As the president of a trashy TV channel, Max Renn is desperate for new programming to attract viewers.

A lot of credit for what makes Videodrome such an outstanding film has to go to the legendary Rick Baker, who provides some excellent practical effects that convey the extremely visceral ways in which Videodrome starts to affect the people who are exposed to it.
Cronenberg is one of those directors that is talented enough to make a bizarre film not seem too out of control.
It isn't that it is too weird to understand, it all makes sense, it's just that the movie takes a turn into the realm of oddity, as opposed to the first half of the film which is viewing the oddity by proxy.
