Consistent CNET look and feelThe first thing you'll probably notice is that CNET TV has lost its black background. This was probably the hardest decision we had to make in the redesign process, but in the end we felt that having a header and navigation consistent with the other CNET sites you're already familiar with would make for an easier user experience.
New channelsIn CNET TV 1.0, our channels had catchy names that just never caught on. In CNET TV 2.0, we've renamed our channels with easy-to-understand titles and provided subcategories to allow you to find exactly what you're looking for.
Promotion of hot videos!When we asked our users what kind of video they want to see, we heard the same answer over and over again. They want to see the "hottest, coolest, latest, and most interesting" videos. Since this is a bit different for everyone, we've carved out a good chunk of space on our home page to display a wide array of the "hottest, coolest, latest, and most interesting" video. These change all the time, so you can come back frequently and never get bored. (I'd suggest 20 times a day, if possible.)
Product metadataWe can only squeeze so much content into a video, but that doesn't mean we don't know a whole bunch more about the products we review. To solve this, we've added metadata tabs. On the video view page (the one you get to by clicking on any promotion on the home page), you'll see a series of tabs directly under the video. These provide a summary of our editor's full review, user opinions, specs, and even the latest prices.
