PATENT PORTFOLIO

The SeamlessTV portfolio of inventions includes methods for playing a segment with temporal flow and determining whether a content expansion is desired prior to reaching the end of that segment. If a content expansion is desired, then the expansion segment is played. If a content expansion is not desired, then the continuing segment is played. An additional link from the expansion segment to the continuing segment may be included such that the continuing segment is played after the expansion segment has been played.
