In continuation with my wants, here is another demand 😀
Proper categorization. I am not talking about the web. In the web everything has proper categorization, I can specifically choose the category I want. I am talking about categorization on television.
Each program telecast on the television should be categorized under Movie, Sports, News, Music, Soaps, Comdey/Humour etc. And yes, there should be a specific category for Commercials too. I should be able to direct my television to keep the Sports category first, then Movies (with the subcategory English over subcategory Hindi), Music next and so on and the last category should be Commercials. As soon as the Commercials start in the cricket match I am seeing, that channel should jump to the last position in the viewing hierarchy and should come back to the first as soon as the match starts. There should be separate buttons on the remote for each category. Like when I click the ‘Movie’ button, I should be able to scan through all the movies that are going on currently. And apart from the channel scrolling, I should be able to directly scroll across categories. These categories should be standardized across all television sets and all telecasting channels.
(The idea to have Commercials as a tag and moving it to the end of hierarchy may not be plausible, since that is the major – or is it only? – source of revenue)
I think this is possible; is any television company doing this?
