A new ‘TV Guide’ to children’s ‘television’

For those of us not using search engines to find TV shows on the Web and wishing for a TV Guide of the Web, as Adam Thierer over at TechLiberation.com put it, there is now a TV Guide of the Web: Clicker.com. What distinguishes it from regular search engines is it’s a search engine for full-length shows – not trailers or snippets. You can browse by category too; e.g., you’ll find Looney Tunes or “Leave It To Beaver” in the Kids category (and you’ll also find “Leave It To Beaver” a great talking point for a family or classroom media or history discussion). This is not commercial-free television, but it is free, anytime, whatever-you-want television unaided by TiVo. It’s also the way our kids will be watching TV more and more, unrestricted by the no. of TV sets in the house.
