GlideTV: User Interface To Watch TV with the Navigator Remote

[DEMO 2010] We have selected the GlideTV Navigator in our Uber10 2009 list, and today, the company has launched the on screen user interface to go with it. From the screen shots that I received, the application looks pretty promising, offering a visual gallery of all the shows available across multiple sites categorized by genre, an on screen keyboard to search by name, and a one-stop screen to access the major TV channels, the online video and music providers and the most popular websites such as Amazon or Facebook.

We selected the Glide Navigator for its sleek and elegant design and the need that media center users have for efficient remote controls that look good in the living room. The new user interface gets the same design quality and fits perfectly the device design. Check out the photo gallery to see the user interface and the device pictures. Features from the manufacturer are available in the complete article, alongwith the GlideTV competitive comparison chart (provided by the company).
