“Brought to you by” is an light-hearted attempt to bring transparency to the world of mass TV media by presenting channel and content ownership information, in the familiar format of a cable TV interface. The participant can use the remote control to change between simulated TV channels, and show different levels of information about the content by using the ‘menu’ and ‘info’ buttons. On each channel, the participant can access information about the segments of content individually (shows or ads) and see more about the companies or people that own the messages and products displayed.
