Clicker Gets Its Close-Up
Thanks to a little redesign, online video guide Clicker gets the royal treatment on The New York Time's Bits blog. "The company hopes to move closer to offering a next-generation programming guide that isn't a schedule and can change dynamically based on a number of different events, categories and playlists," writes Bits.
The startup recently closed an $11 million series B round of funding, and is now touting some new features, including "Headliners" -- which highlights particular shows and breaking-news videos, and "Trending" -- which spots presently popular TV shows, movies and other video. According to Bits, Clicker canvasses more than 50,000 movies, 50,000 music videos and 10,000 shows, which are broken down into 1,400 distinct categories. The startups long list of entrenched rivals, include Blinkx, Truveo and SideReel.
