Re: One App To Rule Them All, And in the Darkness, Bind Them It does seem the two are very similar which leads to which is the easiest for customers to use compared with the selection of channels available. I'd usually choose for ease over lots more selections that I'll rarely use anyway. But then what voice systems is going to lead in future years?

Too close for comfort? The two are similar, but you don't sense any copyright infringements, do you? Anyone who lived - or reported - through the Gemstar-TV Guide years may be excused for being slightly skittish when it comes to TV UIs.

One App To Rule Them All, And in the Darkness, Bind Them There are a bunch of graphical UIs now, but eventually it will be an AI-based personal assistant. Siri? Cortana? Alexa? Assistant? Some other rival? I guarantee it will be one of them. Place your bets, everybody.
