With the steadily growing amount of TV channels, content selection has become a challenge to many users. While users have virtually no influence on what will be broadcasted on the majority of the TV channels, users have a great impact on what information is available on the World Wide Web. The NoTube project aims to close the gap between Web and TV by semantics. Bits and pieces of personal and TV related data are scat- tered around the Web. NoTube aims to put the user back in the driver’s seat by using data that is controlled by the user, e.g. from Facebook and Twitter, to recommend programmes that match the user’s interests. By using the Linked Data cloud, semantic can be exploited to find complex relations between the user’s interests and background information of programmes, resulting in potentially interesting recommen- dations.
