And that’s the problem: I shouldand offer users an enormous assortment of TV channels that are be able to choose a TV channel based on its name alone. But thisavailable via the worldwide Internet. It could be streaming channels is simply not enough information. There are many channels thatsuch as with a regular TV broadcaster or video files that would first have selected very peculiar names. How am I supposed to know,need to be downloaded. The choices are becoming more and more for example, that Press TV isn’t a journalism channel but rather alimitless. The selection of the transmission path is actually a way to news channel from Iran? And how many Tele5 and TV 5 channelslimit these choices. are there that appear in a channel list after as scan? Which one should I choose?Of all the different technical variants, terrestrial TV transmissionsin most regions offer the least amount of TV channels. A step up As a user I think receivers should provide another bit of informationin the number of available channels would be cable TV and even for each channel that would help me make a decision. And thatbetter would be TV via satellite.

All too often one Web/ it exactly for that purpose, and that is to watch TV channels in highIP-TV provider starts up service while another stops service making technical quality. For that reason my current criteria out of all theit difficult to count the number of channels. channels that are available is to search for only those channels that carry the two letters ‘HD’. That reduces the choices significantly butIf you take a closer look at the TV channels that you can receive it’s not cut and dry.

Then I would be able to sortinterest. the channels based on bitrate and would only surf between the first 100 channels.

The plight of the cable TV viewer, that usually doesn’t haveany other way of receiving TV, is that they are typically exploited by So this is my wish for the scan function of a receiver: the bitratethe cable provider in that they fill up their channel space with far too should also be measured during a scan and sorting based on bitratemany useless channels such as shopping channels. should also be possible. That’s what I’d like to see.The satellite viewer has the best selection but they often have to dowithout channels that deal with local news and events. The selectionof channels is so large that choosing a channel to watch becomesa tiresome task. Even more gigantic is the choice with Web/IP-TV;here there’s absolutely no organization at all.On what criteria should you base your decision on?
