For some of us, selecting a channel is a very rare event.

Pretty much the only time I use LiveTV is when debugging some problem
with a tuner.

Recently, my wife was in a hospital.  The remote for the TV had one
button.  You'd push the button to turn it on, push it again to
increment the channel number, if it was on the highest numbered
channel pushing it again would turn it off.  That's taking minimalism
to the extreme...
