DIRECTV has asked the CS Clinic team to upgrade the current implementation of their web-based TV guide system. The system should allow extensive customization based on user preferences, and be accessible both at a computer and via wireless hand-held devices. In addition, the system should include the functionality of the newest generation of DIRECTV’s program guide, which is included with the most recent line of set-top units.
