    New S229 Feature - What's Hot!

    Ever watch TV and say there is nothing on? Ever wonder what others are watching? Now with the Hopper's new What's Hot feature you will be able to find out what everyone else is watching on TV! Never will you say there is nothing on again.. and you will be able to talk with friends at work when they say "Hey did you see (show name here) last night?" Yup the What's Hot feature might ever make you cooler at work.

    To access the feature press the Menu button and then Select the What's Hot Button.

    You can see What's Hot in your local area, or What's Hot nationwide.

    BTW before anyone gets worried about privacy issues, it should be noted that the data is collected anonymously by receivers hooked up to a broadband connection.

    You can even specify what kind of show is Hot Now no matter if its a sports show or your looking for a show for the kids to watch. A pull down is available by pressing the Red button on your remote and chose from categories such as Movies, Sports, Drama, Comedy, Kids & Family, News and Talk Shows, Reality or All TV Shows.

    When I first started using this feature I thought it was a silly feature, but in using it I have grow to enjoy it and find shows which I forgot about were on. I think you will really like it once you start using it.

    If people will rate shows correctly and not just messing around...this feature could be a nice handy thing to use

    Unless I missed something there is no way for people to rate shows... instead I thought What's Hot is based on anon data collected from broadband enabled receivers to show what are the most popular shows being watched.
