Abstract

This invention seeks to solve the problem of selecting a television (TV) program for viewing from hundreds of TV channels offered on multiple broadcasting networks independent of the physical location of the viewer and the viewing device (for example a TV). The solution involves assessing location specific broadcast content listing information then imposing a channel preference profile against it, such that a default or user specified program can be identified for viewing.
