If you want to see how this works with Kinect, you can see a demo of that from Comcast's Tom Blaxland over here.  I'm definitely seeing more value with the voice command capabilities than with the  hand-based gesture controlls. JB

Do you have any favorite commands yet? Sit? Fetch? Pause? Yes, fun to see Tom wave at the xBox. Speaking of Game of Thrones, I see there's a companion app on iTunes.

Actually, "fetch" would be pretty fitting, but a nice way to cut through and find something if you have a title in mind. Beats 37 button pushes to search for a VoD itle using a grid guide. JB

It would be nice to sort content by your channel subscriptions.  Today it doesnt always show you what channel a movie is being carried on, and if you dont subscribe to say Showtime, you cant watch it.  I would like to sort by the channels i am subscribed too.  I realize this takes away my incentive to sign up for more channels but it would make things easier when browsing through all of the content.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
