Problem: You are trying to see a movie that appears on television rarely.

Suggestion: Produce media search web page that will accept a search term such as a movie title or radio program name. When such a program is scheduled to run the web site will send an e-mail, fax or phone call to you to alert of the program.

The web site would generate revenue by including ads on the site as well as placing ads in the e-mails sent to users.

Nov. 25, 2005 update: I just discovered that A&E is offering this for viewers. See the top of the page for "e-mail reminder" at the link below.

       Nice. Perhaps the search should also allow the user to narrow the search terms to a specific episode number. Then they would be notified when specific episodes that they missed, will be shown in reruns.
