The digital tv

Does anyone else notice that we are pretty much slaves to the t.v channel schedules ,If a show comes on that you cant watch because of when it comes on or what channel it comes on you have a few choices

  • find the correct time to watch it or 
  • record it later
  • find it online

but what if the television actually acted like it was manufactured in the 21st
century....where is the dynamic broadcasts?
where is the create my own channel?
how about t.v API's?
nothing its like everyone has forgotten about the boobtube.

Am i the only one who looks at a tv and sees a possiblity of endless creativity

so for example lets say you want to watch cartoons but its 4am and they are no cartoons at 4am
wouldnt it be so nice if i could ask the channel directly for certain cartoons.
and maybe create a small channel based off the cartoons that were on the previous day or maybe even
the next day. even search for a cartoon that aired a few days ago that you missed.

i mean think about this do you watch a channel or a show...for me its mostly the show
you dont turn on the t.v and say "i wonder whats on USA or SyFi"
no you flip through the channels or a guide hopeing to find something to catch your interest
and if you see something you like your stuck on that channel.

sure tvs of today have app and web connectivity...but its just another computer.
theres nothing innovative about all

and yes we do have websites like netflix and hulu that offer whole shows you can watch
on your computer or stream to your t.v but like I said its just another computer
