WorldTV introduces EPG feature

Posted by on Dec 18, 2008 in Change Log | 21 comments

online EPGWe’re all very excited (and a little relieved) to announce a major new feature on WorldTV that we’ve been working on for months and which has been widely requested by users on our feedback forum.

Starting today all channels on WorldTV now have an Electronic Programme Guide (or EPG) which lets viewers scroll through a list of videos on a channel (see left), and scroll through a list of other channels to watch. In typical WorldTV fashion it is both easy-to-use and should work fine on a wide range of computers.

The best way to explain it is to experience it, and you can see it in action on this channel here (opens in new window).

EPG optionsThe new feature is enabled by default across all channels on WorldTV starting immediately, but you can choose not to display it if you wish. You can choose between showing just the Playlist or just the Channel list if you prefer. The new controls for doing this are on the Player section of the Channel Settings tab (see right).

Within the next month we plan to offer the ability for channel owners to have control over which channels appear in the channel section, meaning in effect you’ll be able to create your own TV network! You’ll be able to link between different channels that you and your friends create.

For those interested in how we determine which channels are shown on the EPG, we take the best channels on WorldTV (those with a ‘pick’ status on the World page) and display…

  • Some from the same country as the channel you are watching
  • Some from the same continent as the channel you are watching
  • Some from around the World

All the more reason to get your channel chosen as a ‘pick’ by writing to us and letting us know what a great channel you have!

We hope our users enjoy this new feature and it certainly makes watching WorldTV even more of a pleasure. You can now surf through and find all kinds of interesting channels and videos.

    Sigan asi WorldTV! Saludos desde Argentina

    Excellent changes! It’s very good innovation
    WorldTV remain so! Greetings from Argentina

  10. felicidades por los cambios.
    una sola critica, la calidad de los videos es lamentable, yo creo que se puede mejorar muchisimo la imagen para que no se vean tantos pixeles en la tv.
    ya hay muchos sitios transmitiendo de la misma manera y la calidad es optima, se que esa es la proxima meta a cumplir, asi que por lo tanto, felicidades por el crecimiento.

    Hugh Lynch.
