After years of tests ITVMANIA.com is spidering official tv channels online to offer a simple browsing experience.
ITVMANIA.com is a search engine, but more powerful:
- it supports tags.
- you can search for episodes or tv channels
- you can search for episodes tagged with channels' tags
Episodes tagged with channels' tags ?
Ask for "french" episodes ITVMANIA.com will offer all episodes from channels containaing "french" tag, even if the episode does not contain the word "french".
So for others tags, as you can see in the homepage:
- music, ...
The solution is support, in a different way, in our iusseek.com, the legal search engine, and itvmania is a step further in different ways.
Let me say I think this is something useful (finally I find in a second new great videos) but it can be improved in other ways. We're working on it, and main problems on new ideas are legals and how to manage quality with flexibility.
As a true search engine we don't track links neither include results in our template. It's just a link to the official page or content, as stated in the feed.
So as it is ITVMANIA.com is a search engine with selected, official websites and channels (mainly on youtube as you can expect). There's no other content curation. We help in finding videos, nothing more, not as other search engines do nowadays.
It's great on ipad, we will do some test on smaller displays in next weeks.
