Sometimes, I wonder if Bruce Springsteen looks back at his song, 57 Channels, and has a laugh at the current state of entertainment. These days, 57 channels of television programming is nothing -- we have hundreds of cable options, not to mention iTunes, Netflix, and Amazon. The NextGuide app tries to make some sanity of the mess, and today's update should help make things even clearer.
"What's on TV tonight?" isn't quite as easy of a question as it used to be. With so many ways to watch our favorite shows and movies, just about anything can be on whenever (and wherever) we want -- it's just a matter of narrowing down the options. Filtering through it all just got a whole lot easier with NextGuide, a dramatic reimagining of the classic TV guide. Instead of an unwieldy list of unwatchable channels, you get vivid programming squares that span many common sources of entertainment, like cable TV, iTunes, Netflix, and even Hulu Plus.
