Cable and satellite TV providers may have a new tool in their arsenal. Here at the D11: All Things D conference Fanhattan, a company known for its app for navigating content options, just unveiled a remote control and a new way to search all the video content options on your TV—both live and digital video.
Fan TV is distinguished by a keyless swipe remote. The sleek ergonomic square is about 2 by 2 inches, and is designed to be controlled intuitively by the swipe of a finger, just like an iPad.
The box, which sits under a TV, puts a user interface on your television, which enables users to swipe between channels, or between TV options—to browse comedy, dramas or movies to watch. And there's a search option, so if you're say, looking for "Seinfeld," you can see where the show is available on live TV, or on a digital option like Netflix or Amazon.
