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.
