Internet media players to haveTV-like channels, and easy channel-switching capabilities

Please forward to Corporate headquarters:
Internet media players should have TV-like video channels, and easy and fast channel-switching capabilities, to help viewers watching online videos feel as if they are watching TV itself.
For example if you go to, then you see lots of Indian TV channels broadcast online, but switching from one channel to another, requires closing of current window, opening new one, etc. But this can be made more TV-like, ie switching of channels, should be done, with single pressing of a key. Also, there is too much time lag between switching between two channels. But in TV, switching from one channel to another, the switch is instantaneous, and there is no Buffering needed by the media player.
