Abstract

The Internet provides a rich source of interesting and entertaining video content. Yet, the ability to access this content on the device most appropriate for viewing it – the TV – is limited by the constraints of that device. This paper presents a novel, low-interaction and non-disruptive user interface for the exploratory browsing of Internet video on TV. The system employs contextually filtered lists of related videos and familiar TV design metaphors. The reported user study demonstrates this approach to browsing is significantly preferred by users over conventional list-style user interfaces.
