Service creates personalized channels based on your interests and information from your social networks.

SAN DIEGO--A company called ffwd.com launched at DemoFall on Monday a personal remote control for navigating video on the Web.

The free cibsyner service lets you subscribe to channels and then creates a personalized channel for you. It shows other channels that contain similar content, and lets you get more information on programs.

The service also can grab information from other sources to create channels, such as FriendFeed. For instance, it can create a custom movie channel for you based on your NetFlix queue. It also can use information on your social-networks sites.

The channels will work on big-screen TVs.

The company plans to make money off advertising, licensing, transaction leads and providing user preferences, trends and other information to content creators.
