Did you know that users of Democracy Player can add alternate channel guides? They can (just go to the ‘Channels’ menu and select ‘New Channel Guide…’).
We added this feature in version 0.9.0 because we think it’s an important part of having an open platform. We make a default Channel Guide, to help everyone find channels that they might be interested in, but we don’t want to stop anyone else from making an even better guide or a guide on a specific topic or for a specific community.
The key to making a channel guide is having the functionality that let’s people subscribe to channels with a single-click. This page describes how to build this: Democracy Channel Guide API.
If you’re making your own channel guide, let us know– we’re curious.
