Current TV – Annoyances

Current TV logo

Today is the big launch of Current TV, the startup from Al Gore. So all I want to do is find out what channel the thing is on so I can watch. I choose Direct TV from the list and then I’m asked for my name, street address, email, and birth year. I was almost turned off enough not to care.

Estamos experimentado fallas tecnicas . . . “

Sorry, you get the idea. Ah, the pain of channel birth.

Anyway the following screens actually did appear earlier today:

OK, so write this down – If you are on Direct TV it’s on channel 366. I say write it down because as of right now, if you forget what channel it’s on, YOU’VE GOT TO FILL IN THE FORM AGAIN!
