I'm wondering how people managed to find CNN on TV -- after > all, CNN ads didn't feature local channel numbers :) For those with few enough channels, they surf through them and eventually remember it only if they watch it often enough. For those with a lot of channels, they have a piece of cardboard that lists them, and they look through it for a couple of minutes every time until they eventually remember. This works for 20 channels, or even 50. It does not work for 30 million channels. On the other hand, if my TV let me type in "CNN" and it came back with the right channel, that would scale beautifully as long as nobody else was dumb enough to name their channel CNN.
