Abstract
(EN)
A viewer- of an episode of a series such as a television' series may wish, to access episodes of the series that the viewer missed when they were originally, broadcast. Interactive applications may receive the viewer's indication of interest to record missed episodes of the incomplete series, which may include instructions regarding recording options for including the missed episodes in a series aggregation. Interactive applications may identify the episodes to be included in the series aggregation, and record the missed episodes, which may then be stored and organized to create a series aggregation, in the order that they, were first broadcast with episodes that the viewer may already have available. Interactive applications may present the episodes of the series aggregation in the order that they, were originally broadcast, by providing the viewer with options on how to access the episodes.

Un spectateur d'un épisode de série, notamment les séries diffusées à la télévision, peut souhaiter accéder à des épisodes de la série qu'il a manqués lors de leur première diffusion. Des applications interactives peuvent recevoir l'indication du spectateur marquant son intérêt pour les épisodes manqués de la série incomplète, avec la possibilité d'inclure des instructions concernant des options d'enregistrement afin d'intégrer les épisodes manqués à une agrégation de série. Les applications interactives peuvent identifier les épisodes qui doivent être inclus à l'agrégation de la série et enregistrer les épisodes manquants. Ces épisodes peuvent ensuite être mémorisés et organisés pour créer une agrégation de série, ordonnée selon l'ordre de leur première diffusion et en incluant les épisodes dont peut déjà disposer le spectateur. Les applications interactives peuvent présenter les épisodes de l'agrégation de série dans l'ordre de leur première diffusion en proposant au spectateur des options concernant les modalités d'accès aux épisodes.
