Title (EN) NEWS FEED FOR MEDIA CONTENT SELECTION
(FR) FIL D'ACTUALITÉS POUR SÉLECTION DE CONTENU MULTIMÉDIA
Abstract:
(EN) Example embodiments provide a media content news feed identifying one or more media content streams that may be received and displayed. In an example embodiment, media content alert information is received at a media content device that describes at least one of a plurality of media content streams receivable at the media content device via a network. The received media content alert information is processed to generate a content news feed including one or more content news items. The content news feed is presented using the display device. A selection of one of the content news items of the feed is received, with the selected content news item identifying a corresponding media content stream of the plurality of streams. Based on the selected content news item, the corresponding media content stream is processed.
(FR) Selon des modes de réalisation de la présente invention donnés à titre d'exemple, un fil d'actualités de contenu multimédia identifie un ou plusieurs flux de contenu multimédia qui peuvent être reçus et affichés. Dans un mode de réalisation donné à titre d'exemple, des informations d'alerte de contenu multimédia sont reçues au niveau d'un dispositif de contenu multimédia qui décrivent au moins un flux parmi une pluralité de flux de contenu multimédia pouvant être reçus au niveau du dispositif de contenu multimédia par l'intermédiaire d'un réseau. Les informations d'alerte de contenu multimédia reçues sont traitées pour générer un fil d'actualités de contenu comprenant un ou plusieurs éléments d'actualités de contenu. Le fil d'actualités de contenu est présenté à l'aide du dispositif d'affichage. Une sélection de l'un des éléments d'actualités de contenu du fil est reçue, l'élément d'actualités de contenu sélectionné identifiant un flux de contenu multimédia correspondant de la pluralité de flux. Sur la base de l'élément d'actualités de contenu sélectionné, le flux de contenu multimédia correspondant est traité.
