ZillionTV is getting its programs from the big boys like Disney, NBC, Universal, Sony Pictures Television, and Warner Bros. Rather than looking through a program schedule, as you do now with cable, you'll access a page that splits content up by various categories, genres and titles. "Selecting the type of show will zoom in to the next level of thumbnails that could, for example, represent a genre; selecting that will take one to a series of program producers, and then to a grouping of episodes, each with its own cover art and descriptive text," explains Eric Taub of Gadgetwise. The crazy thing is that you do all this with a motion-sensing remote like the Wii controller. You can zoom in and out of info about your show by swinging the remote to and fro.
ZillionTV plans to launch in 2009. It hopes to have 15,000 titles available on launch. We're excited about it. It's about time content producers really rethought the way we watch TV.
