- The DIRECTV channel search
option includes several powerful functions that are worth investigating. The following paragraphs describe three of those functions.
Within the DIRECTV channel search
function, it is easy to find a program, no matter how much or how little information the user knows about it. After pressing the Menu button, select Smart Search, then choose to search by title, person, category or channel. An on-screen letterpad will appear, on which the user must use the arrow buttons to navigate to and select the letters of the title, person, keyword, channel or category. Search results will start to appear as soon as the user begins to select letters. By allowing multiple search options, the user can find a program which features a certain actor or director, or whose title contains a specific keyword or phrase, or which falls into a certain category or genre.
DIRECTV channel search also displays "similar shows", or programming that the user might enjoy, based on the search that was just completed. These suggestions may include programs that the user was already aware of, or that the user has never heard of. The search function then gives the option of recording or viewing the description of the suggested "similar show." This function of DIRECTV channel search is similar to online shopping websites that present the shopper with items that other shoppers with similar tastes were interested in.
Using DIRECTV channel search, it is possible to view photos, filmographies and biographies of the user's favorite actors and actresses. Also, the user can see a list of upcoming movies and TV shows that a performer is appearing in. This option is desirable to those users who have a favorite actor and want to watch any program or movie in which that person appears.
