What NFL Sunday Ticket/Redzone should be.

Dear NFL, DirecTV, and/or Microsoft (official game console of the NFL), Google, Intel and any other potential buyer when the current contracts run out.

Here’s what we want.  Forget about “channels” already.  Make an app that combines the real time curation of the Redzone channel with the user choice of NFL Sunday Ticket.

I want to set rules like:
– show me the Lions when they have the ball
– show me the Lions when their opponent has the ball and is 8 or fewer points behind
– show me an nfc north division game if it’s within 8 points
– show me red zone channel in all other cases

The app could continue to learn and refine preferences, alert on controversial or spectacular plays elsewhere, and have options for picture in picture viewing and manual cycling through a small list of preferred games.

This kind of hybrid between all curated and all user selected is where I think tv is going.

If only the glitches of technology and the restraints of 20th century licensing can get out of the way.
