5,000 Channels!

August 21st, 2008 by Dean Jansen

Yesterday marked 5,000 channels in the Miro Guide. It’s growing faster than ever (just a few months ago we hit the 4k mark), and is about to get better than ever.

Soon, we’re going to be rolling out a fresh version of the channel guide. It’s already looking amazing and more importantly I think it’ll help people find more channels they like. Additionally, we’re going to improve the guide for use in any browser. In fact, the experience is already getting better — click into a channel and then click on an episode thumbnail to begin streaming the video.

Lastly, I want to encourage more people to test out the Miro channel recommendations (a la netflix). Just make an account in the Miro Guide, log in, and start rating channels that you like/dislike.

Once you’ve rated 15 or 20 channels, click on the “Channels You’ll ♥” link in the navigation bar. The system is a bit rough around the edges, but I think the recommendations are getting more accurate and useful all the time. Eventually, you’ll be able to do all this stuff directly from Miro, while you’re watching videos.

Thanks to: Robb E, Parker H, Chris M, Sumanah H, and Paul S for staying on top of the guide!
