Typecast displays a list of the television shows you want so you don’t have to crawl through an endless grid of channels. Typecast uses your custom searches and the television listings for your area to find the programs you want to watch instead of a seemingly endless sea of junk. Whether you’re a serious TV viewer who DVRs and time-shifts everything or a casual viewer who watches TV before bed, Typecast finds what you’re looking for.
Typecast displays only programs that match your searches, from recent PG action/adventure movies during primetime with closed-captioning rated four or more stars to soccer matches between the Chicago Fire and the New England Revolution to new, HD episodes of Saturday Night Live with Whoopi Goldberg or Will Ferrell. No more wading through Paid Programming and reruns of Project Runway (unless that’s what you’re looking for).
Please note that Typecast does not enable you to watch television. It only displays television listings information. Typecast requires a subscription to Schedules Direct to download TV listings.
If you use Windows Media Center, Typecast can communicate with WMC and display which programs have been recorded and which are scheduled to be recorded. You can also use Typecast to schedule programs to record on your WMC. (If you used Ceton’s abandoned My Media Center application, this makes a great replacement.) In order to use this feature, you will need to download the Typecast WMC component from 12noon.com.
