The era of interactive TV will be characterized by value-added services wherein users can shop, play games and receive video-on-demand - all using their television. In this paper, we describe the design and implementation of a rapid video browser that can easily be deployed on a TV set-top box to enhance the viewing of a recorded TV program. The vast penetration of VCRs and the proliferation of set-top boxes suggest that this application can be widely deployed in viewers’ homes giving them a taste of future interactive services.
