Abstract: Despite the tremendous growth in online video, the consumption interfaces are still modeled on search- and-browse. We propose a solution to create a much richer online video experience modeled on the television channel metaphor. This is especially useful in the emerging market context where people are more likely to consume the video web compared to the text web. Our solution allows users to consume online videos from multiple sources in a personalized manner. We have implemented a number of interactions to facilitate easy consumption such as personalized recommendations, query assistance, similar videos, documents related to videos and video annotations. We believe our solution enables a differentiating online video experience.
