Design an innovative Mobile App User Interface that can replace a TV remote and making browsing the TV Program Guide from the App intuitive and seamless like browsing Netflix or Amazon Prime and is able to make intelligent recommendations based on viewing history and preferences in a manner like YouTube Recommendations. The essential idea is to change the current linear browsing experience of TV program guide from a TV remote to a rich interactive non-linear browsing experience from a Mobile App.

AIR broadcasts programming in over 20 languages and from several 100s of stations. Design an innovative user interface for a Mobile App that would intuitively and seamlessly allow the App User to browse the entire catalogue of AIR streams at any point in time allowing for discovery of live content by language, region, genre, keyword etc….

Develop a tool or system that can listen to a radio broadcast tuned to a certain frequency on the air waves and live stream the same as an Internet stream. Essentially the tool or system should be able to grab an on-air broadcast at a certain frequency and convert into a digital IP based live stream.
