Website of the day: Instant Watcher

Oh, what to watch? What to watch? Three words that probably aren’t bandied around too often these days are “there’s nothing on” because, let’s face it, there’s too much on. You can watch live TV, catch-up TV, streamed TV, mobile TV and the number of suppliers of content is mind boggling.

But actually finding something to watch? Therein lies a real challenge.

Take Netflix, where you will almost certainly spend more time looking for something to watch than actually watching something. Don’t get us wrong - we love the service, but the interface is just a bit overwhelming at times.

But use instantwatcher.com and suddenly you realise just how much good stuff there is, if only you could find it quickly. It’s a simple site that uses Netflix’s API to display what’s popular, what’s new and what’s noteworthy.

It’s not massively sophisticated because it really doesn’t need to be.

And that’s why we love it.
