Television has long played an important role in providing rich information and delightful entertainment. However, the trend of applying smart technologies in the design of television has yielded complexities that reduce people‘s enjoyment in television watching. Contextual interview results from our study showed that the participants needed solutions for helping them save interesting content rather than using advanced functions. In line with the rapid development of mobile communications and social networking services, we created and implemented a CatchPo system that includes a CutX TV Memo app that can help viewers use their mobile phone to catch interesting content they are watching on television. Editing the memo and sharing it with friends is easy. Consequently, different cultural groups that consume different media can be connected. Together with the additional CutMix app that enables the viewer to create a collage with their photos and the TV show, the system enhances people’s TV experience with useful technology.
